Americans disapprove of Obama’s use of executive privilege — especially younger voters. So it doesn’t surprise us that several Democrats will break party ranks and vote to hold Holder in contempt.
FOX News reported:
The congressional contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder is looking more and more like a fait accompli, as House Speaker John Boehner presses ahead with a Thursday floor vote and conservative Democrats one-by-one announce they will side with Republicans.
Sources told Fox News that roughly 20 are likely to break ranks.
Their support only increases the odds that the nation’s top law enforcement official will be held in contempt of Congress come Thursday.
Should this happen, the vote would touch off a whole new legal process — in which a U.S. attorney would be called upon to convene a grand jury to consider the allegations and whether to indict, though with Holder at the helm it’s unclear how that would play out.
