Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was viciously assaulted today by Attorney General Eric Holder and several members of the CBC following a tense line of questioning in a House committee meeting. Taking offense at a comment made by the GOP Rep, Holder stormed the dais and was joined immediately by the other Democratic members as they pulled Gohmert from his chair, pummeled him repeatedly until he went down and proceeded to kick him repeatedly in the head.
Gohmert was taken to an area hospital where he is listed in serious condition. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery.
Holder and the CBC members fled the Capitol following the melee and remain at large. Holder, citing prosecutorial discretion, is not expected to press any charges.
