Glenn Beck: Holder's exchange with Gohmert 'a threat against a congressman'

During his April 9, 2014 radio broadcast, Glenn Beck, despite having claimed last week that he was done wasting his life paying attention to every little thing that happens in Washington, DC, spent a great deal of time ranting about something that happened in Washington, DC.

During a Tuesday House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) reportedly brought up the House finding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt in 2012 for his refusal to turn over documents about the Fast & Furious Scandal.

"You don't want to go there, buddy," said Holder. "You don't want to go there."

"I don't want to go there?" Gohmert replied. "About the contempt?"

"No. You should not assume that that is not a big deal to me. I think it was inappropriate. I think it was unjust. But never think that that was not a big deal to me. Don't ever think that."

Later, after Gohmert's time was up, Holder reportedly muttered under his breath: "Good luck with the asparagus."

According to Beck, this proves that Holder is "dirty" and had literally threatened Gohmert during the confrontation, which is proof that the entire Obama administration is "out of control."

"That is a threat against a Congressman on the oversight committee," Beck said. "Wake up, America!"

"These guys are the worst people I have met," he added. "Holder is out of control. He's a very bad guy and he is out of control. Just remember that as our doors are broken into."

So apparently, the very long list of things Republicans are allowed to do but Democrats are not now includes talking.
