Washington – The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday will consider a contempt measure against Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday unless he provides at least some documents the committee seeks on the Fast and Furiousbotched federal firearms sting operation.

A showdown meeting Tuesday between Holder and panel chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-California, failed to resolve their dispute over the committee’s demand for the Department of Justice to turn over more documents about the program.

“Prepping for #contempt proceedings against #Holder for #FastAndFurious stonewalling. Didn’t have to be this way, but we’ll do our duty,” said a Twitter post by Issa before the committee convened Wednesday.

If the panel approves the contempt measure, it would go to the full House for possible consideration.
