A majority of the committee members on the panel, however, rejected calls from Democrats to hold Holder in contempt of Congress as well as contempt of the Constitution for refusing to comply with subpoenas from Congress. "I believe the attorney general has acted in contempt of Congress and of the Constitution," said Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Holder has, in essence, argued that executive privilege should allow him to maintain the status quo, arguing that he has no plans to change the program. Holder said that he was first notified in mid-December of the committee’s investigation and on Feb. 5, 2010, informed of the subpoenas. "I have taken the position that the department has complied with the subpoenas in all respects and that I would, therefore, be required to comply with the terms of the subpoenas and to appear to testify," Holder said. "To not be truthful with Congress would be wrong and would be contrary to my duties as attorney general." The DOJ’s position has drawn support from six former attorneys general, including Richard Thornburgh, William Barr, Alberto Gonzales, Michael Mukasey, Janet Reno and Edwin Meese. "Congress has had a look at the Fast and Furious documents," Thornburgh told Roll Call on Monday. "I believe the reason for the lack of documents and records that the Justice Department has failed to provide has to do with the failed program." Thornburgh said the position of Holder is "quite a departure" from his stance during the Clinton administration when he "steadfastly resisted" subpoenas for documents. "I don't think it's constitutionally permissible to use executive privilege in the face of a congressional subpoena," he said. The issue has risen to the highest level in recent weeks after Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and the top Republican on the panel, subpoenaed documents from the DOJ related to the Fast and Furious operation in December. Issa has threatened to hold Holder in contempt of Congress over the issue, and he has told Holder’s department to produce the documents by Friday. Issa also wants Holder and other DOJ officials
