There are some times that I absolutely hate being right. Especially when it comes to the actions of our elected officials. This time I may not have been 100% right however, unfortunately, I am close enough.
Wednesday night I wrote about and discussed the possibility that after the contempt citation for Atty. Gen. Holder was passed by the House of Representatives, that Our Great Leader, HRH Barack I (peace be upon Him) would immediately grant Atty. Gen. Holder a pardon. This was based on the idea that the house would be passing a single contempt citation holding the Atty. Gen. in criminal contempt.
As has been reported widely the House actually passed two contempt citations against Atty. Gen. Holder, the first being a criminal citation and the second being a civil citation. My understanding is that a Presidential Pardon would have no effect on the civil citation.
So of course, when news broke this afternoon, that the Justice Department stated they were refusing to accept the House citation of contempt against Atty. Gen. Holder and stated flat-out that they would not prosecute, I was less than surprised.
And with that, Faster than you can say Furious, Holder is off the hook (criminally)-- for now.
The Justice Department may only refuse to prosecute as long as the current administration is in office. This still leaves open the possibility of a Presidential Pardon for Atty. Gen. Holder. If this November, HRH Barack I is replaced, the Romney administration can immediately take up criminal sanctions. Therefore it would not surprise me if the Presidential Pardon comes right before Obama leaves office January 20, 2013.
This is just another example of this administration's arrogance and a refusal to bow to the rule of law and the will of the people.
