God Bless Louie Gohmert
Gohmert sticks it to the Communist Attorney General
Comrade Attorney General Eric Holder clashed with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday, telling Gohmert, “You don’t want to go there” when Gohmert suggested “contempt” was “not a big deal” to Holder.
“You don’t want to go there, buddy. You don’t want to go there, okay?” Holder told Gohmert.
At issue was a request for documents in the DOJ’s case against the Holy Land Foundation, a designated terrorist group, whose founders were convicted and sentenced for funneling money to Hamas reports CNS News.
“I was fairly specific to make sure that I got the documents that the Department of Justice handed over to people convicted of supporting terrorism. They’re terrorists. We’ve given them the documents,” Gohmert said.
Gohmert said the committee sent the Justice Department repeated requests for the documents that had been used to prosecute them but were only provided a link to “nearly 500 publicly available exhibits that were admitted into evidence” and instructed “to check the public access to court electronic records.”
