Videos: Eric Holder found in Contempt of Congress

As promised, all but one member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) walked out during the vote to find Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. In total, there were more than 100 Democrats who turned their backs on the Brian Terry family and didn't vote. There were some noteworthy moments as both sides debated.

First, via Buzzfeed, Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) has been the Terry family's congressman for years. Though this video doesn't include Darrell Issa's full response to Dingell's attempt to assert that he represents the Terry family, you get the point; he doesn't. After Dingell made the claim, Issa ran down a list of obvious examples that demonstrate Dingell has done nothing to represent the family.

The Daily Caller reported on the Terry family's response to Dingell claiming to represent them while supporting Holder in this case:
Terry’s family was particularly disgusted with Dingell’s use of their name in his partisan defense of Holder. “Congressman Dingell represents the district in Michigan where Brian Terry was born and where his family still resides, but his views don’t represent those of the Terry family,” the family said, pointing out that Dingell “invoked” their name in his defense of Holder. “Nor does he speak for the Terry family. And he has never spoken to the Terry family.”

The family said they haven’t heard from Dingell since “[h]is office sent us a condolence letter when Brian was buried 18 months ago.”
On the opposite end of the spectrum is Rep. Trey Gowdy, whom Chairman Issa gave the last word before the criminal contempt vote. If there is anyone in this investigation who has risen to the occasion, it's Gowdy. In this rant, you may see him shed some tears but they're teas of anger. If ever there was a vote in Congress between good and evil, it happened yesterday.

It's easy to see what side Gowdy is on:

As the contempt vote was taking place, the subject of that vote - Eric Holder - was in Disneyworld, speaking to the leftwing Hispanic group, LULAC. The irony is that the documents Holder is withholding may implicate him in the murder of hundreds of dead Hispanics.

Here is Holder's arrogant reaction to being held in contempt of Congress:

Like Obamacare, the Supreme Court is likely to ultimately decide if Holder is to release the documents in question. Excuse me for being pessimistic but it very likely could be that the only way the documents are ever released is if they are leaked.
