But I don't expect Eric Holder to rush that prosecution or assign it to any truly competent attorney.
Holder was found in civil and criminal contempt of Congress. There has been no prosecution. He still has his job, and there have been no consequences for him. In fact, he was quoted saying this back in March:

(...) for me to really be affected by what happened, I'd have to have respect for the people who voted in that way, and I didn't, so it didn't have that huge an impact on me."
If contempt doesn't have any effect, he really can't be compelled to cooperate with anybody at this point. I doubt he'll have a sudden crisis of conscience on the matter.

Sorry, but Issa and Grassley blew it. The matter is effectively done.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
