A fait accompli

"Justice Department shields Holder from prosecution after contempt vote"

Yep, the very department that Attorney General Eric "Neutral, leaning towards favorable" Holder heads up is claiming with straight faces that refusing to honor a Congressional subpoena and being cited for criminal contenpt of Congress (by a bipartisan vote, no less) for doing so "does not constitute a crime".

What an absolute travesty of "justice".  Let's see Joe or Jane Q. Citizen get the same consideration from the Feds the next time they decide to defy a lawful subpoena.

This news means that the House of Representatives will now have to pursue a lawsuit in civil court to compel Holder to produce the documents he's been hiding, presumably to save both his and Obama's rear ends.  They must be awfully explosive for the pair to be forced to go to these ends.
