As house lawmakers prepare for tomorrow's -- vote against attorney general Eric Holder civil rights activists are condemning the vote.
They call it politically driven listen.
-- morally reprehensible.
Act that is -- -- -- on Thursday.
Is certainly engineered and motivated about politics.
This is motivated by politics base politics base anti civil rights.
The men who are persecuting general holder in this way are the same then.
-- ever attempted to tie the hands of his department to protect our voting rights to stop racial profiling.
And to protect the workers.
The the rights of workers.
-- right now is.
Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson junior and their you saw a picture obviously general and Brian Terry -- died as a result of past and what I I think it's appropriate and and it and it puts in into our minds what the real question of the day it's.
Who's the real victim of fast and furious.
The attorney general if you listen to mr.
jealous and reverend Sharpton face -- they will tell -- that mr.
A victim of of of racial injustice.
There's no credibility to that charge whatsoever.
And when you say something like that.
-- Real efforts in this country to stop racism -- to speak out about instances where people are victims of racism which has no place.
In our society.
But what we have now again is the White House doing kind of -- -- -- the shuffle here saying okay we'll show you.
Thirty pages of stuff we'll show a little leg that was just -- an end step that's probably as they said before privileged.
But back off on this.
They've got to reach -- a melting point the contempt is going to go forward.
It will be sent to the US attorney in Washington DC.
Is that it has moved it's.
Well yesterday I'm I'm glad you -- that the racial component it's important because it pollutes the -- -- absolutely and in people here that -- wonder what's behind it now you've answered that question -- but OK let's say tomorrow that they find contempt mr.
holder in contempt and they're gonna do it.
Criminal contempt and also civil contempt that it goes to the -- -- the US attorney right in Washington DC essentially he works for Eric Holder.
Hate being you know he works for Eric Holder he's contributed -- to present Obama's campaign than they have in the past.
And apparently was part of vice president -- so he's not going to be primary human -- well that's interesting constitutional issue.
At that point what -- the it Department of Justice to the US attorney says.
Well we're not going to take.
The reference we're not gonna go forward we're not gonna presented to the grand jury as a law from the nineteenth century -- dictates that you must.
What we see now in my view is.
The White House saying well we're gonna enforce some laws.
When it's in our favor we're not gonna pay and pay attention to other laws when we find them to be politically unfavorable like immigration.
Like voting rights in in Florida with a trying to take people.
Off the ballot and so there's a double.
Standard and so to bring in shock troops at this point right in effect -- say well.
The race card being played and mr.
holder when there's a legitimate inquiry about whether there was a cover up -- over ten months.
To say well this is really about race.
That helps the White House in one sense in that it excites that the hardest left movements.
Of the Democratic Party.
But it also says the American people in the space -- independents.
Listen what are you trying to hide.
Give the documents over.
He's a symbol is of that water get all redux speed trying to get to an election for and then we have a surprise.
There after as we divot Richard Nixon when the documents the tapes we didn't bring her solo to -- the stuff up it said he's not about race is that reality there you go.
-- -- not just politics because some at least one Democrat maybe more cargo -- -- -- -- like it is bipartisan yet it does Ari that Peter Johnson junior today today.
