Holder May Face Contempt Vote [VIDEO]

Update: Justice Department says the President has exerted executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents.

He’s testified over and over on Capitol Hill about Fast and Furious, yet Attorney General Eric Holder could be held in contempt of Congress by unhappy Republicans.

FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

Audio clip:

All signs point to that contempt of Congress vote this morning with the House Oversight Committee.

(Holder) “I think we are involved more in political gamesmanship.”

(Issa) “We have to in good conscience see documents that convince us that it’s time to say there’s been sufficiency as to the subpoena.”

The contempt resolution expected to pass on a party-line tally.
