The House Judiciary Committee really ought to have sold programs outside today’s hearing with Attorney General Eric Holder — it’s tough keeping track of all the current scandals without one. It’s not the freshest White House scandal, but don’t forget the lethal Fast and Furious scandal. Holder certainly hasn’t, and he let the committee know he has no respect for the House’s 255–67 vote last year holding Holder in contempt of Congress, inspired by Holder’s refusal to hand over documents regarding Fast and Furious. Why not? The NRA was behind it, that’s why not.
Holder is now dissing the @NRA. Oh hell no..

Holder: The NRA was out to get me!

Holder says contempt vote was "inconsistent with prior practice," cites NRA scoring the vote.

The Left’s gun grab attempts following the Newtown massacre were at least partially responsible for a surge in NRA membership and in gun sales. Is Holder aware that his actions helped swell the NRA’s ranks?

Well Holder, the NRA was the lobby group of the AMERICAN PEOPLE since we have no voice! So, STFU.
