Last Monday, the House Oversight Committee scheduled a contempt of Congress vote against Eric Holder unless he complied with all 22 parts of a congressional subpoena that Darrell Issa served him last October.

Today, Issa met with Holder, and from what we can gather from the Tweet below, if Holder handed over to Issa anything related to Fast & Furious, it was only a DVD with a picture of Vin Diesel on it:

More:

Issa’s committee is looking for documents dating from February to December 2011 on how the Justice Department handled the Fast and Furious case.

Holder says he made Issa an “extraordinary” offer that includes documents, a briefing on those documents and answers to questions Issa and his committee might have.

“The ball is in their court,” Holder said. “They rejected what I think is an extraordinary offer.”

The contempt vote is still scheduled for tomorrow at 10 a.m.

Slightly different subject: There seems to be another leak Holder might want to look into. Or maybe not… whatever.
