A spokeswoman for House oversight committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa [2] told The Daily Caller that Attorney General Eric Holder [3] could still avoid the contempt of Congress proceedings on the horizon — if he cooperates with the congressional subpoena he’s thus far failed to comply with.

“The Justice Department can still avoid contempt,” Issa spokeswoman Becca Watkins told TheDC. “They need to pledge their cooperation and stop stonewalling on critical documents outlined by the committee in the draft contempt report.”

Watkins said those “critical documents” include “what high ranking officials knew about Fast and Furious and when they knew it, information about informants and their roles, and how the Justice Department changed its view from denying that gunwalking occurred to acknowledging that Fast and Furious [4] was fundamentally flawed.”
