The U.S. House Judiciary Committee vote Wednesday afternoon to hold U.S. Attorney General William Barr in contempt was quickly followed by an announcement that Congress and Main Justice had reached a settlement in a subpoena dustup involving Eric Holder, the first sitting attorney general held in contempt of Congress.

The former Obama-era attorney general was held in contempt in 2012 by the then-Republican held House after refusing to comply with a demand for records related to the botched gun sting called Operation Fast and Furious. That case got bogged down in the federal trial and appellate courts, for seven years, and a settlement was filed just hours after the House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to hold Barr in contempt.
