Issa on meeting with Holder: Looks like Contempt Hearing will Proceed

It doesn't appear that the meeting between Eric Holder and Darrell Issa went well today. Based on a statement from Issa's office, it looks like the contempt hearing is full steam ahead tomorrow.

Via Issa's Director of Communications:
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa made the following statement after his meeting with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder:

“I had hoped that after this evening’s meeting I would be able to tell you that the Department had delivered documents that would justify the postponement of tomorrow’s vote on contempt.  The Department told the Committee on Thursday that it had documents it could produce that would answer our questions. Today, the Attorney General informed us that the Department would not be producing those documents. The only offer they made involved us ending our investigation.

“While I still hope the Department will reconsider its decision so tomorrow’s vote can be postponed, after this meeting I cannot say that I am optimistic.  At this point, we simply do not have the documents we have repeatedly said we need to justify the postponement of a contempt vote in committee.”
The only offer was stop the investigation?

Holder's refusal to be forthcoming today says one thing. He has decided it is more advantageous for him to be found in contempt of Congress than to honor the subpoena.

The next question that needs to be answered is, why?

Can you say, "White House"?
