White House: Holder won’t be prosecuted for contempt

Who would have Thunk it?

One day after the House voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to provide documents relating to the Fast and Furious gunwalking program, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said the criminal prosecution of the contempt charges will not move forward.

“The prosecution will not take place in this circumstance,” Carney said during a press gaggle aboard Air Force One en route to Colorado. He said the president’s assertion of executive privilege over the related documents makes the matter moot.
