AG Eric Holder Won’t be Prosecuted For Contempt Charge
President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege upended any hope Republicans had for a criminal prosecution.
A letter Friday from the Justice Department to House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa confirmed that “across administrations of both political parties, the longstanding position of the Department of Justice has been and remains that we will not prosecute” in such a circumstance.
“The department will not bring the congressional contempt citation before a grand jury or take any other action to prosecute the Attorney General,” concluded the letter from Deputy Attorney General James Cole.
