Angry Eric Holder tells Rep. Gohmert “You don’t want to go there”

Rep. Louie Gohmert is still waiting for documents from the DOJ and accused Eric Holder of not caring about being held in contempt. Holder responded “you don’t want to go there.” Holder, pointing his finger at Gohmert, claimed that it was a big deal to him despite the fact that he felt it was unjust. Gohmert hit back saying the evidence is not there to support his claim because he still refuses to hand over requested documents which was the reason for the contempt.

    Thank you Rep Gohmert for never ceasing to go after the corrupt DOJ and the Obama White House!!

    • timerunnersc

      Rep. Gohmert is one of our great servants in today’s Congress.

  • JoJo58

    Yes, WE the people want to go there. What will it take to remove Holder from office? Flip the senate, clean out the RINOs in the house and senate, and if we’re lucky, we can have a veto proof congress that will start doing something about this out of control administration.


    Yes Congressman Gohmert, We The People do NEED Holder to resign!…We HAVE to Go There!

    We will not allow a white flag planted on her soil…

  • TexasGirl

    I get so tired of the bullying attitude and tactics of this administration. I guess that’s what happens when you elect a Chicago thug for president.

    • tinlizzieowner

      And he brings his ‘mob’ with him to Washington to run the government. :-{

    • Steve Angell

      No that is what happens when you elect a balless man as Speaker who is a far better friend with Obama than the American people.

  • NJK

    I hope he meets a horrible end someday.

    • TheoSentrik

      I hope he find Christ someday. Soon. And that he then comes clean about all the corruption he and others are involved in.


    You bet Congressman Gohmert wants to go there but Eric Holder doesn’t.

    • Stehekin912

      Yes we all want to go there and see the truth…but be sure to take a gas mask to protect you from the hideous stink.

  • Louie got under his skin didn’t he?

    Had he stopped above his skin, it would’ve been racist.

  • clockwindingdown

    Oh my look at the commie with his panties in a bunch, didn’t he just commit assault, wasn’t that finger pointed like a gun???

    • Ooooh! Good catch!

    • timerunnersc

      I noticed that too. OK now it’s time for a suspension, a permanent suspension in a orange jumpsuit.

    • Kansas Gal

      Foul! Rules only apply to little kids in school and elected conservatives, liberals are covered and exempt, because they do not support the pointing of fingers like guns.

      • clockwindingdown

        Unfortunately they are the ones using actual guns to commit mass murders. They don’t support it until they do…

  • Stehekin912

    Pitiful attempt at deflection, Holder. Gomert is right, Holder is a contemptuous creature.

    • timerunnersc

      Yep! and that’s being nice.

  • nobs

    When you tell someone they “don’t want to go there” it usually means you intend to make them pay the price if they do. This looked like an attempt to bully a Congressman and it was done in daylight with the cameras rolling.

    • DINORightMarie

      That is considered a threat, in fact. But who will prosecute him – Congress?! Under Boehner – no way! The DoJ? Prosecute himself – of course we know that won’t happen!

      No one. And Holder knows it.

    • Steve Angell

      Boehner is like a dog always has his nose up Obamas rear.

    • sno_warrior

      It sounded like a THREAT to me.

  • Prosecute Holder!

  • What docs does he want?

  • scott beard

    Holder..hahahaha What a JOKE!!!!!!

    • DINORightMarie

      I would agree, if he wasn’t the guy that is supposed to enforce our laws. Because of his position, we are in this mess – because no honest, law-abiding, America-loving AJ would allow this travesty of justice and abdication of the rule of law!

      You have to have a sold-out ideologue in the highest places to ensure your lawless agenda will not be stopped. (There are those who compare him to Himmler, but I won’t go there.)

  • bjohnson55

    Perp walk the arrogant a hole out of this meeting in front of all the cameras. Then bring Lois Lerner in and do the same to her. Time for you Republicans to get this country back under Constitutional control.

  • lrjrj

    Rhetorical indignation by Holder – no substance. Thank you Eric, another highlight in your partisan and contemptuous tenure as the most political AG in modern Americans history, best known for incomplete investigations of scandals and NOT enforcing the law, as legislated by previous Congresses.
    The antithesis of representative govt and clear evidence of contempt for the majority in opposition.

  • d1comment

    Perhaps you don’t know who I am….?

    • timerunnersc

      Right! Ouch! I think Holder’s self-esteem just got offended.

    • sjmom

      Perhaps he doesn’t know Louie is a former judge?

  • timerunnersc

    Seems as though the truth really bothers Mr Holder, so much so that he couldn’t control his finger pointing while being spanked by Rep. Gohmert.
    great job.

    • I saw his pointer finger, but was concentrating on the other three.

      Not sure what his thumb was doing. Maybe it was doing the same thing my thumb was doing.

      Will have to watch it again.

      Thumbs up Scoop!

  • $98442859

    why not holder? you’ve gone further than that. you can run but you won’t be able to hide for long you snake

  • Hang them for failing to uphold their oaths to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America! The affirmative action twins need to be prosecuted but that will never happen. They are protected because they are black. They can literally murder in cold blood and get away with it! Fast and Furious, Benghazi and I am certain more deaths will come to light at the hands of these thugs! If there ever was a time for some lynching it is now! Anti-American Bastards!

  • Cam

    Yes, we will go there.

    Embrace the psychology of conflict and take on these affirmative-action liberals like Holder directly and aggressively.

    Learn to like to fight.

    • bjohnson55

      Agreed, conservatives need to love the fight as much as liberals love other peoples freedom and money.

  • PalmBayConservative

    What he said was , ” you don’t want to go there buddy!” then he said it again ” you don’t want to go there” leaving out the buddy part.

  • John Queue

    Tell that jackal his time is up…his progressive destruction of the DOJ is coming to an end…and crawl back under that pile of feces from whence he came.

  • Yazz55

    Seems like he really wanted to say…”we know where you live-you don’t want to go there”

    • sjmom

      It did sound like a threat and one which must be taking seriously. Wonder if he looks good in orange.

  • helensimon

    Louie, Louie, oh, baby…he does wanna’ go there…woa, woa, woa, woa, woa, yea.

  • robin Grace

    What a Child, Holder is. Any minute someone needs to smack his hand and tell him to go to the corner.

    • NYGino

      I’m in favor of a lifetime “Time Out”.

  • robin Grace

    AS usual, Holder acts like a Punk. Wag that finger, Punk

  • sjmom

    Threatening a Congressman in an open hearing Mr Holder? Think you’re above the law, eh? Its time to take down this “doesn’ t wanna go there”. Sounds like Holder would rather spend time in prison than respect the law, so let’s make it happen.

    • TexasPGRRider

      • sjmom

        Isn’t there something in May in DC? I’d love to go but not gonna happedn.

  • Frances

    The utter arrogance of Holder to shake his finger at Gohmert & essentially threaten him!

    • 67falcon

      Two things I have been saying for years about liberals is now validated by science?Am I not truly a man ahead of my times with my finger clearly on the pulse of America – and a lousy writer with mixed metaphors.
      1. “There is no one as intolerant as an open minded liberal”
      2. “Liberals are self appointed moral superiors”

  • olddog

    Suspension..waving his finger like a gun…With-Holder is in direct violation of Core Gun Control…or whatever..thingy ya know.

  • sickntired

    It’s obviously not a big deal since they found him in contempt and then did nothing about it. So he is basically above the law and congress are a bunch of pussies

    • Jim Denney

      Under the law Congress can’t do anything about enforcement. They referred it to the DC attorney (another affirmative action Dhimmicrat) and big shock … he refused to prosecute.

      • stage9

        Yes, it’s called the revolving door of politics. Criminals protecting criminals.

        • ryanomaniac

          Lucky Luciano said in his book that after being conned by FDR if he had it to do all of it over again he would’ve become a politician. He could do almost all the exact same things and get away with it.

      • sickntired

        Who basically works for Holder. Just like Congress has now found Lois Learner in contempt… which will now be referred to Holder and the DOJ. I’m sure that will get swept under the rug as well. Holder needs to be impeached, tried and jailed.

  • John

    Imagine the OUTRAGE if it was a white AG saying that to a black congressman…

  • PNWShan

    Think of all the power Holder has – without any conscience or morals to limit use of that power. Prager was just asking on his radio show, “How did surveillance video of McAllister get released to the public?” He finds this very troubling. I doubt Gohmert has been kissing staffers – but with the amount of laws in this country and with mobs like the gaystapo – NO ONE is safe from some action they did being misconstrued and used against them. I bet right after this hearing, Holder calls people into his office and says, “Find something on Gohmert now!”

    • stage9

      The solution is to keep your nose clean. When in public life EVERYONE is watching you ALWAYS. Of course if you have good character, you won’t have to worry about that.

      • It’s no longer public life. It’s everyone, everywhere, all the time.

        I told my kids to behave as if they were on camera 24/7, because they are.

        • stage9

          That is true.

    • Ed Roberts

      Gohmert got nothing to hide — but this holder guy is a clear thug — he needs to be in jail sooon

  • joyfulgiver

    Way to go Louie, “know by our fruits” unfortunately this apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Yes, this AG should be held in contempt.

  • B-Funk

    Oh, we do want to go there Holder. We do.

  • DINORightMarie

    Well, Eric Holder proved it – he considers himself to be high priest of the THOUGHT POLICE. He didn’t just say, “Don’t assume what I think” he said, “Never think that….don’t EVER think that!”

    Since when does he get to tell people what they are allowed to THINK?!


    • Sandra123456

      Because of his skin color which Holder and Obama use to get away with …everything they do.

      I am the first black President. Can’t get me!I am the first black AG. Can’t get me!

      • $13245463

        I hope they hold their breath

      • NYGino

        Because of the absolute mess they’ve turned both domestic and foreign affairs into it will probably be the last time for a long time this happens again.

        • scoggin

          It’s not the color. It’s the ideology. Having said that, I’d have serious issues for voting for a black POTUS candidate because of the racism thing. I liked it better when all politicians were white men.

  • Pennie Rodriguez

    Look at that Chicago/Obama THUG, pointing his finger at a JUDGE and trying to intimidate him!!

  • A criminal serves as our top law enforcement officer. This administration is beyond belief.

    • Swamp Fox

    Mr. Gohmert, watch your back. This regime kills if offended.

  • NYGino

    People and governments all over the world are watching our Attorney General show contempt for our laws and our country. Is it any wonder that we have lost the respect as a nation that we once had when our own administration spits on us?

      I respect Gohmert, but wonder what Trey Gowdy’s response would have been under the same circumstances!

  • imatellau

    Hire an independent investigator to have authority to confiscate evidence over the DOJ’s head!!! Then watch holder squeal like the commie oinker he is!!

    • Time4Offense

      The problem is, Speaker Boehner and the Establishment RINO leadership refuse to do this!

  • Isabella1709

    Holder deserves to be jailed. Period.

  • Bob McMahan

    Holder’s tone and body language suggest massive arrogance and contempt for Rep Gomert.

    • PNWShan

      Holder has massive contempt for the entire American system of government, which is why he’s subverting it.

    • Army_Pilot1967

      Yeah, I’ll bet ol’ Boxhead worked sooo hard to become a senator. Wonder how many lies she had to tell the voters during her campaign? She comes across as arrogant and vain in my opinion.

    • Uncle Sporkums

      We are the subjects to these aristocrats. Its time we reminded these arrogant jackasses that they work for US!

  • LooneyBinEscapee

    Sounds to me like our Chief Law Enforcement officer (Holder) communicated a threat to a member of congress. If I were Rep. Gommert, I’d be sure all my finances are in order, that I don’t have any skeletons, watch where/how you go and who you go with.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Pssst….hey, Holder, actions speak louder than words. So if you don’t want to face a contempt charge, turn over the requested documents. It doesn’t get any easier than that…..unless you’re trying to hide something from Congress!!!

  • mike3e4r7

    The thug slipped out. Holder is usually good at hiding that fact that he’s a lawless, Marxist, thug,(and a punk, I might add) under a veneer of soft spokeness.

  • Sentinel

    Holder is in contempt right there… When does this Ahole get thrown in jail? (Rhetorical – of course he won’t) Holder is a criminal and needs to be jailed.

    • Betsey_Ross

      He controls the jailing. Not his job, but he takes it on for “his people”.

    • Cam

      I agree.

      The way to deal with recalcitrant thugs, like Holder, is to get tougher. Take notes from Putin on dealing with the lower forms of hominids, for example.

    Gohmert, when faced with Holders’ swaggering contempt, should have doubled down on his accusation with greater force.

    And SOMEBODY better damn well better hit Holder with contempt charges! What’s it going to take, for Pete’s sake?

  • Betsey_Ross

    Apparently it is a big deal to Holder. They’re honing in on the DOJ and Holder knows he is in trouble. I wonder how long he thinks he has? He’s mighty arrogant.

  • PatriotInk

    Holder is such a complete and utter loser. He is so far out of his league that he has to resort to low level, intellectually dull attempts to do nothing more than antagonize as he squanders the position he occupies. He is quite simply a nothing. A nobody.

  • Ken Valley

    People need to call this despicable Communist for what he is: a skumbag Commie! Holder is the slimiest of all corrupted slimes of lawyers and the DOJ. He’s even lower than a worm’s @$$!

  • Uncle Sporkums

    Well, Well.. That ugly masked slipped a little, didn’t it? I agree Gohmert should have doubled down and held him in contempt.

    It brings a smile to my face that Louie Gohmert now lives inside Eric Holder’s head rent free. 🙂

    Holder and Obama are getting more outwardly testy as they lose control. They could only run that line of weak cheese b.s. for so long. People are beginning to believe that their ears are hearing lies every time the Administration clowns speak and they are actively condemning it.

    Obama and his henchmen are losing their grip, they are greeted with more scoffing than the hosannas they received in 2008. The worm had turned and it’s time for Obama to chow down.

    • NYGino

      I like your thinking SurfinUSA.

    Eric Holder, like so many have said here, is a thug in a suit. He’s the kind of guy that sends his “minions” out to do dirty deeds to people that upset him. But I don’t think Rep. Gohmert is all that afraid, ha ha.

  • Mark_Trail

    Holder only takes Obama Law seriously, not what he and Barry consider “White Man Law,” which is why he holds Congress in contempt.


    ..who is this guy Eric Holder ?”

  • ApplePie101

    Gohmert should have said, ‘Are you threatening me?’ and kept saying it till he got an answer. Holder uses his offce for intimidation purposes, and he should be exposed loudly and publicly.

    • notebene

      I would have informed Holder that I was most certainly NOT his “buddy” and if what he means by “going there” is truth…you betcha!

    BLAM!!! … Love ya, Louie!!!

  • Madfoxx

    That would be “you don’t want to go there Congressman” He earned that respect, right Mr. Holder?

  • Louie sissied out. I’d’ve told Holder, right on the spot, that he has a bad, and childish, habit of pointing at people. I’d tell him, in no uncertain terms, that I’m neither impressed, nor scared of, him, and that he’d better find better use for his fingers, than using them to point at me.

  • Mark Jorgensen

    Is there not a way for Congress to IMPEACH the Attorney General? Wait until after Autumn elections AG Holder.

    • They want you to put your hope in elections, because they control them.

  • He’s a thug who has all kinds of thugs at his disposal to destroy people’s lives, and he uses them all the time, so Gomert should be afraid of him. Many of those thugs are at a Ranch in Nevada stealing cattle right now. They raid farms all the time. They use false flag terror to manipulate the population continually. They create their own evidence to destroy people. They put people in jail for telling the truth about their criminality. They assassinate people and call it “suicide”. Watch this and decide for yourself whether or not you have a criminal government. Do you really think that elections are going to change the power structure in this country?
