Fast and Furious' offer may not stop contempt vote, Issa says

Washington (CNN) - A new offer of Justice Department records from a botched gun investigation might not be enough to stop a motion to cite Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt of Congress, a House committee chairman said Monday.

Holder and Rep.

Issa is the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
