Fast & Furious heating up again
The House votes to cut a million dollars from the Justice Department budget over its stalling on release of documents -- that's pocket change to a big Federal agency with a $27 billion budget, but better than inaction.
In the meantime, more support for a contempt citation aimed at the AG, which would have a more direct effect.
The Department of Justice, historically, has always treated their documents as the kind of thing they’d rather never seen again, hoping everyone forgets about them as soon as possible. Good to see someone do something about that, as little as it realistically is.

I've read the cut is to make a point in that it would negate the 1 million dollar budget increase the ATF is otherwise slated to get....
