Last-minute attempts by House Republicans and President Obama’s administration to resolve a dispute over the release of documents has failed.

The House plans to vote Thursday’s vote on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, the Associated Press reports [2].

Sources told the AP that Republicans met with the administration and Justice Department, which handed over only 30 pages related to the botched gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious.

The GOP was hoping to get more information to suspend an unusual contempt vote.

Republicans told the AP that negotiations are over.
