Nine more members of Congress have told The Daily Caller that theyre calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over his handling of Operation Fast and Furious, more than doubling the number on record before the weekend calling for his ouster. A total of 17 members of Congress have now called for Holder to step down.
The latest group of members includes Republican Reps. Dan Burton of Indiana, Allen West of Florida, Lynn Jenkins of Kansas, Trent Franks of Arizona, Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, Mike Pompeo of Kansas, Duncan Hunter of California, Devin Nunes of California and Dennis Ross of Florida.

Resign? Nope. Impeach the B-tard. And his boss B-tard.
Bring on the Trials.
Responsibility for Agent Terry’s death.
Hundreds of dead in Mexico.
Attempted smear of BATF agents who did not cover up this crap.
Lying to Congress.
Betraying his oath of Office.
And the most important thing, EXPOSE & bring charges against Obozo who planned this Fast & Furious Mess.
The purpose of the non stop Occupy coverage is to block all news relating to Fast And Furious and Solyndra.
Bubble. bubble, double the trouble!
Not bad, but you forgot the biggie... Waging war against the United States (specifically the Constitution, and most specifically the Second Amendment thereof), which under the wording of the aforementioned Constitution, equates to... TREASON... 'nuff said...
I second the motion! :-)
Treason, state-sponsored terrorism, RICO violations galore...
Oh yes... In fact, the murders of *two* Federal agents on US soil, open up *ALL* (as in each and every one) of the people involved in this mess to the death penalty, under RICO statutes. Holder and Obama would be just as guilty as any drug kingpin under those statutes for murders committed by others in order to further their criminal enterprise. And make no mistake, this crude attempt to end run the 2A is *not* going to fly, legally anymore. Pre-Heller, it could possibly have, but post-Heller, no way...
If that's not enough I was thinking of their material assistance given to multiple international drug cartels. Many more murder charges lie in that and range from many dozens of Mexican citizens to all levels of Mexican LEOs from the local to the federal level.
Apparently the UN and the Hague are prejudiced and don't consider Mexico worthy of defending because there are a slew of charges to be made there too. The 0bama administration has put the U.S. squarely in the rogue nation category.
Undoubtedly true, but what is likewise true is that the UN and the Hague are both quite untrustworthy, in my eyes, and have eschewed the only appropriate penalty for such crimes, that being the death penalty. Best that they *NOT* be involved, then...
The 0bama administration has put the U.S. squarely in the rogue nation category.
Cogent point, and one which makes it incumbent upon *US* to rectify the wrong and appropriately punish the evildoers, to remove that taint of "rogue nation". Once again, for such crimes, there is only one appropriate penalty...
I agree. I don’t want the UN or the Hague involved but I thought it was worth pointing out that there was plenty of cause from the POV of their excuse for existing to do so. Highlighting their hypocrisy in not saying anything about it is just a bonus.
Let’s not overlook the ‘my people’ statement and the declaration that as AG he will not prosecute ‘people of color’.
Steppng down is the easy way out and the most comfortable for the republicans. The people want to prosecute!
Bump for the double, double toil and trouble, and for the fire burn and cauldron bubble.
If Holder resigns the whole thing is over. Obama gets away clean.
Don’t resign , Arrest him.
Never mind the resignation, read the scoundrel his rights and proceed to prosecution.
Pathetic and waaaaay overdue. His resignation should have been demanded right after the Philly polling place intimidation case was dismissed against the Black Panthers.
When will they ever learn?
Liberals never resign. They have to be forceably removed.
Picture Eric Holder being frog marched out of the Justice Building between two large U.S. Marshalls.
Are YOU another FREEPER who doesn't realize that ONLY Obama himself could have thought this up and authorized the implementation?
Would you like to add "and then the Congress is finally forced to take action against Obama?" Obama may not go to jail until after he looses the next election but that needs to be his ulitmate destination
You got that right. I emailed my US Rep on Friday about that among other things. He is distracted with finding “common ground” with the Dems. He needs a good slap to wake him up.
Thanks for the ping.
This is IMPEACHMENT material! Hundreds of US and Mexican citizens and federal agents are DEAD because of Obama and Holder.
They were trying to use this as an anti-gun measure, saying that US guns are making their way into Mexico so we must restrict US guns buying. This backfired as people found out about their scheme and people started dying.
The Republicans in Congress should make the following statement, and make clear that they regard it as non-controversial and self-evident: "Mr. Holder has a duty to know what goes on under him, and to cooperate with investigations of such matters. That's part of his job. Refusal to cooperate in such matters constitutes refusal to do his job, and Mr. Holder has offered no justification. As such, there is no lawful basis for him to remain on the government payroll, and President Obama has a duty to fire him. If Obama should refuse to do so, such refusal shall be construed as a refusal on the part of Obama to do his job."
> Are YOU another FREEPER who doesn’t realize that ONLY Obama himself could have thought this up and authorized the implementation?
Of course Obama thought this up, but Holder is complicit and arrogant to boot.
