The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will vote Wednesday on whether to declare Attorney General Eric Holder (pictured) in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide the panel with subpoenaed documents concerning the committee's investigation into the flawed "Fast and Furious" gun-tracking operation. Yesterday, Holder briefly met with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the committee, after which Issa emerged saying the Department of Justice "would not be producing" some 1,300 pages that have been subpeonaed. Holder said Issa "had rejected his proposal to allow the committee to 'review' the documents first," which he believed would convince the panel to forego the contempt vote.
