During the daily White House Press briefing today, Press Secretary Jay Carney gave a full defense of Attorney General Eric Holder and his response to Congressional inquires about Operation Fast and Furious as the House Oversight Committee moves to vote on contempt charges against him next week for his on going stonewalling of their investigation. Carney repeated the same talking points Holder and his DOJ have been pushing for nearly a year now:

-Holder has testified eight times before Congress about this topic

-The Justice Department has submitted 7000 documents to Congress (even though 140,000 Fast and Furious documents exist)

-Holder has acted responsibly in ordering his inspector general to investigate the situation

-There is an ongoing internal investigation by the DOJ inspector general
