The vote was 23-17, along party lines. The contempt resolution was approved despite the Obama administration asserting executive privilege over the documents sought by Congressman Issa. Updates to come.

Update

CBS News reports that the full House will have a vote to hold Holder in contempt next week. If the resolution passes it would be the first time in history the House has found a cabinet member in contempt of Congress.
