From Fox News:

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has scheduled a vote for  next week to consider holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of  Congress over the controversial Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., released a 64-page memo in early  May outlining the case for holding the attorney general in contempt. The  chairman based his argument around Holder’s failure to respond to an October  2011 subpoena for internal Justice Department documents on the operation.

The committee’s vote for contempt is scheduled for June 20.

“The Obama administration has not asserted Executive Privilege or any other  valid privilege over these materials, and it is unacceptable that the Department  of Justice refuses to produce them,” Issa said in a statement Monday, accusing  Holder of having “failed to meet his legal obligations.”
