Legal Dispute Ahead in Holder Fight

A legal battle looms if the GOP would like to see documents in an investigation into the Fast and Furious gun-trafficking controversy that’s hit the Justice Department. House Republicans won a historic political fight Thursday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, but they are likely a long way from obtaining the documents. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is conducting the investigation, will consult with the House counsel’s office about a legal challenge to Holder’s decision not to hand over the documents.
