AP source: Talks fail to resolve contempt issue
Tuesday - 6/26/2012, 6:03pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - Obama administration officials and House Republican staff members have met but failed to resolve a document dispute that could lead to a precedent-setting contempt of Congress vote Thursday against Attorney General Eric Holder.
A House Republican official, not authorized to be quoted by name, said Tuesday that White House and Justice Department representatives showed the GOP staff 30 documents related to the botched Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.
The GOP official said the administration also promised to provide hundreds of pages of documents, but only if the House Republicans would stop the contempt effort and end their investigation. The offer was rejected.
Those attending the meeting included White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, Justice Department official Steven Reich and representatives of Speaker John Boehner and Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (EYE'-suh).
