InTraders should get in on this Eric Holder market - it needs more action. House GOP about to hold him in contempt on Fast & Furious program:


"Led by House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Republicans in the House are preparing a contempt resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder, alleging that the nation’s top law enforcement official has obstructed a congressional investigation into a federal operation that allowed guns to flow to Mexican drug cartels.

A congressional source with knowledge of the contempt resolution confirmed to TPM that a draft does exist and said Republican leadership had been very supportive of the measure, which was first reported by CBS News. CBS said House Speaker John Boehner had given Issa the go-ahead to pursue the resolution, but a GOP leadership aide disputed that report and told TPM that “no decision” had been made."

I really wish they would, because Holder deserves it for arms trafficking and being a dick about drug laws, but something tells me it won't actually happen.

It's doable in legal terms, he's broken enough rules to get impeached, but that doesn't mean he will be..

Intrade is too scared of the DoJ to create any market on Holder, whether its' his resignation or an Obama pardon for Holder before the end of Obama's term.

I would certainly give action on the short side of this market and I think there would be some tea partiers on the long side so lets do it!

Edit: Commerce Sec resigns. So there is a way, as unlikely as it is. May be is Holder starts snorting bath salts.

Intrade has had an ongoing Holder contract, HOLDER.DEPART.EOT, (in addition to 3 other Cabinet Secretaries), which includes resignation, since January 6, 2010.

Sweet, I just put some orders out.

Carl, can we get this on the front page for a little while since it is in the news and is likely to get a lot of press over the next 6 months?
