This attorney general Eric Holder have trouble is he going to get certain of the contempt of congress noticed.
Or is it tax -- to talk about contempt for the attorney -- just talk that's all and no real threat.
Cashman there ice insists attorney general's wrongfully with toll in fast and furious documents to congress -- ice and joins new insert.
Before I read I do agree with everything you just said -- -- -- Clearly the attorney general is failing to comply with the subpoena he said he's not gonna comply with the subpoena.
One of the frustrating parts of this is the part he won't comply with the most.
Is who is responsible for a fast and furious which he says was deeply flawed and yet nobody -- justice has been.
Look -- an agreement that this isn't a simple day in May when he goes for congress in -- BS question.
You know who authorized it and who is the highest person who -- all about and that seems like an impossible.
Information get out he says it's because Anne -- it's been investigated internally but I'm curious is there an appetite.
In the house with the GOP leadership to issue.
A contempt citation.
Well I think after the abuses under Nancy Pelosi it's very clear that we want to.
Sort of have belts and suspenders and double and triple -- so we're gonna make sure that we've made our case we've exhausted all other opportunities including whistle blowers and other ways of getting this information.
But there is going to come a point where there's nothing left but to say.
We we find.
This is this attorney general to be in contempt.
I didn't is being going to kind of threat over a year and a half you have a day and a border agent who has been murdered and you have a family is -- grieving and -- -- information.
And it seems like a simple thing and say it's sort of caught up in the sort of -- Washington whatever.
And so I I know that you -- alike you know dot every I and cross every T but you know but yet time is running out to get answers for this family -- I hope you -- and yet.
I hope that by your bus and they want to wait they don't need to after the election so that nobody gets punished either way politically for those.
Well politically is a different question but the Terry family and I will be together were going to be naming and -- -- -- congress house and senate the president has signed.
A bill that names the Border Patrol station where Brian Terry worked out of its brand new but it was where he was working out of -- named him after him.
-- -- -- I might -- curious though is a decision going to be made about whether it's Al contempt citation -- and it turns out well that we may be made before the election.
I've already made a decision that.
We have been.
Unable to get what we legitimately entitled to members of my committee on the Republican side to a person are totally convinced.
Our case right now we're trying to work with the Democrats in the -- on the committee we're trying to work with the 31 Democrats who asked the president.
To make Eric Holder cooperate thirty of whom are not on my committee we're trying to make the case across the dial.
-- -- given little time to try to time it.
Amazing and we hear rumors it for outside the rumors you hear the speaker Boehner is -- about this that he -- -- -- that that's true or not.
But -- is this going to happen and an act I think there are things we looked at fully although I do think -- have a funny time but that's just that's I think.
But will this be done -- a decision be made before election would either days subpoena the sat contents additionally there go over there or not -- -- Or November election oh absolutely.
When I mentioned Brian Terry's family I I expect to have it by then right now art -- we're doing is we've sent out to every member of congress 64 pages laying out the case for contempt.
We've asked them to do they have any questions can we show them the proof because a lot of -- -- especially our democratic members.
They have -- information on what is -- and what hasn't been delivered.
So what we're trying to do and this is.
Politics at its best.
We're peeling off making sure Republicans understand what we're trying to peel off Democrats who they understand that if when the -- is on the other foot.
They're going to want any administration to be more cooperative -- this particular one has been an area in which a man was murdered.
And of course attorney general could end this tonight you could -- or -- as you walk off the set and weaknesses.
-- this immunity -- that this could be handled quite quickly unless there's some in you know.
Legal impediment that he can't -- the information I'm just unaware of that but.
But this really is in the -- and largely in their hands exactly the people who.
Lied to congress and then covered it up.
The people they would say it was a mistake of fact they would they weren't caught alive but whatever other people who knew the truth and help with the mistake in a letter that is pretty that SpinRite -- and it -- testimony I yes I am what I saw but but.
More important than that because that's that came after the fact the people who approved had the bad judgment to approve this some of them are clearly here in Washington some of -- high ranking.
It may not go to Eric Holder he's testified it doesn't but all we're saying is if you want to have people accountable and you mentioned the -- family.
Don't wait till this administration's term is over people can leave at the end of -- term.
Hold some -- accountable who made these bad locations.
The person being the bad decision may still be working in the government to make bad decisions -- -- they are is that inconsequential assignments Gaza.
Highlighting to Jesse about that 5000 dollar eleven on the part of.
The answer of the 500000 is simple Greta it should be how much you spend per attendee.
Don't let them game the system by having eight year hundred people come instead of 300 and they stay under the limit.
You go when you put a -- -- like that make sure it's really about how extravagant per person and this -- thank you -- thank you Greta how.
