I'm Laura Ingraham in for Bill O'Reilly and in the Friday's LeBron -- segment tonight two interesting topics including her all those unique take on the supreme court's health -- rolling and it's political impact.
But first -- that the -- Justice Department is now saying it will not prosecute attorney general Eric Holder.
On criminal contempt of congress charges joining me now is Fox News anchor Geraldo Rivera.
OK -- does so this is a big news -- -- get we have the Supreme Court ruling on immigration then on not obamacare now this Eric Holder contempt vote.
And today of of course on Friday the Justice Department says.
Don't bother what we're not pushing this forward any grand jury there's no crime here.
Well I don't know why anyone is surprised by that my goodness Ronald meets in his name the US attorney in the District of Columbia was appointed by Barack Obama.
He's a colleague and friend of by Eric Holder it's a no brainer I don't understand for the life of me.
-- I say in this committee could expect.
A criminal contempt to result in an indictment of the attorney general that's why we're so opposed to this process.
Here they make history.
They cited for contempt -- sitting cabinet member the attorney general of the United States not -- Absolutely knowing that the criminal contempt charge who go no place -- holders hiding.
What do I think he's tired I think you ask the wrong question what is Darrell ice Heidi why is plenty exciting right is he's so intense.
On creating a scandal that won't go away because John Boehner and the Republicans need this like they need a whole -- do you.
Did you got it's a pretty serious issue that thousands of guns go across the border -- that one agent at the very least gets killed and probably hundreds of other Mexicans are killed.
As a result of these guns walking across where do you think that's -- -- -- -- but a couple of points one walking guns and walking drugs is an age old law enforcement technique however discredited it is in this case.
We have to make very clear that people understand -- serious about this is not the first time this is happening when I don't know I -- happens it will not receive early next half shut down it happens all the time it all -- horrible idea and it doesn't happen anymore it was hatched by.
Local agents in the Phoenix Arizona where this.
-- -- on as we learned today by the deputy assistant attorney general -- one Kyle and another official who is deceased.
Wiretap bombshell came out today and Jerry's got a bombshell I saw the wiretap is absolutely he's got to follow the overall though how that you're a man who follows the facts and you come to a logical conclusion.
-- may be nothing but maybe completely nothing there but it is a bit curious is it not.
That the Justice Department brushed aside any concerns that anyone at Justice Department was directing this operation they then had to withdraw that account.
And what I so want to know is cool directed that that account be withdrawn who originally drew up and rode out the faulty false.
May be fraudulent letter.
Did someone who direct the Justice Department.
To change the story and if so why -- I think we're legitimate -- Working on Wednesday -- and Darrell -- -- -- for the record.
That not only is there no evidence that Eric Holder -- the president of the United States knew anything about death and periods prior to the death but agent Brian Terry.
Hey and following up on that said -- not even a strong suspicion what so what if Johnny jet.
Hundred nineties and also what had any knowledge I play up a little happier or is he being honest advice right that political -- -- but what you can -- you -- honest in saying that there was no -- evidence yet what I think if you want as well and because there's no evidence of how do you pursue and knowing it is not going to be a criminal.
I have to -- video cause -- death magnetic.
Exactly you did that way by the way you don't like you know not make your point and MR coach -- up until then I had a pretty -- question calamity -- grandstanding and grandstanding.
Sign of weakness and argument and stop that behavior are -- so we have a family was lost.
Forty year old good man who was serving this country similar to -- your own proprietary.
To make a political really it is -- is how.
Absolutely sale and placement point politics and quiet about the politics liberal parties and all are really upset I -- enjoy that visual bull the blacks congress from walking out.
And all the Latino congressman walked and I enjoy the visual I thought they acted like fools you you do they acted like immature Little -- I was wondering if you're all the fools with a walk people walking out of the people want her.
Every principle slight edits are -- for the first time in our history what -- 115.
Years let me thank -- 100000 got this -- -- 215 years is this the most serious allegation against this summer now aren't you would want to say -- you know that there's nothing haired kid to be hit I was siting there to be allowed -- -- -- in -- precisely that the civil contempt would go no place because it's going to be -- I had been on the do not understand the federal court I.
I definitely ten months if not years I don't I don't have that -- after what went wrong and even let me do one sentence long.
-- -- -- I'm agreeing with -- so there's no point in continuing to -- immediately about agreeing with you -- comic spin down -- yet but what I'm saying as.
I don't think either of us now -- really why that letter was -- it is curious that after February of last year the administration will release no documents.
Why not even a long -- just a -- -- This is why this -- -- -- -- this this date chill out there's nothing to hide we're gonna -- he'll log that's it that's our gonna do it that would have been a little bit more credible don't think I make a prediction.
Now that -- -- -- has.
Achieve his short term goal to smear.
And taint the attorney general of the United States.
This will be dropped it will go no place John Boehner doesn't want any part of this he has much larger fish to fry.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Ford Center right -- -- then you'll have to ask him.
I don't know what you're -- abject -- political act but I believe that he has absolutely no answer is that anti -- a lot not.
Contract so he could have some interest in the rule of law so -- Eric Holder -- give them both for I'm I'm I'm just saying the documents to be helpful or a law that would be helpful there are a lot of things that would be helpful this is a few early political -- and you should be capital helped the Democrats and I don't care about the -- I happen to be a republic out.
Okay breaking anything other than that breaking news Andrea Riley sounded all the time while Imus -- all the fun -- -- -- I think -- you -- going helper -- after the.
