The U.S. House could, for the first time in history, vote this week to cite a sitting U.S. attorney general for contempt of Congress.
The House Oversight Committee recommended the vote against Attorney General Eric Holder last week after he refused to hand over all of the requested documents in its investigation of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' controversial Fast and Furious gun-running sting.
The vote came after President Barack Obama asserted executive privilege over some documents sought by the panel. The White House move means the Department of Justice can withhold some of the documents.
House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa said Sunday a letter being sent to Obama will outline why his invocation of executive privilege is either "overbroad, or simply wrong."
The letter will be sent by Monday, Issa, R-California, told ABC's "This Week."FULL STORY
