An attorney with whom I work raised an interesting point: The House voted in favor of criminal contempt. Had it been civil contempt, then the contempt could have been purged by Holder's delivery of the subpoenaed documents, assuming that I recall the distinction between criminal and civil contempt correctly. IOW, because this is criminal contempt and not civil, turning over the documents will not purge the contempt. In that case, will the documents be turned over?

Inquiring minds want to know.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
