Skip to comments.DOJ whistle blowers provide Speaker Boehner with courage to charge Eric Holder
Posted on 06/14/2012 8:54:51 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax
Just days ago, House Speaker John Boehner shocked the conservative world by at last granting his long awaited approval for next weeks contempt of congress vote against Attorney General Eric Holder.
But it wasnt the thought of doing whats right for the family of Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata or others killed in the Regimes Fast and Furious scheme that prompted the Speakers decision.
After all, Mr. Boehner is hardly one to risk a loss of political advantageor more importantly, anger the national mediajust because a few hundred people have been killed by his Democrat friends.
No, the very cautious Congressman Boehner and other Republican leaders at last chose to take a stand because of reports that at least one and perhaps two sources within the Justice Department have approached the Issa committee seeking whistle blower status. (1)
For weeks it has been suggested that House and Senate committees investigating Eric Holders participation in Operation Fast and Furious were receiving vital information from a leak in...

If the bonehead actually pulls this off, I’ll upgrade his rating from cojone-less RINO to RINO t*rd.
The closer to the election we get, the less likely harsh action is taken. But then again, there’s always SOME REASON the RINOs opt to chicken out. There’s no more road left for the can to be kicked down.
Tammy Faye will figure out someway to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Nothing is ever fixed in this country because every problem actually fixed is one less campaign issue that can be used.
I’m sliding ever more firmly into the term limits camp all the time. Tell congress that they might as well fix it now because they won’t be back anyway.
Does anyone else cringe a bit when they see the title?
How about infusion of some ‘spine’?
A special prosecutor appointed to investigate and prosecute the few conservative Republicans, is more likely.
Even if Romney wins, Scooter Libby needs company.
Will someone (a real conservative) PLEASE challenge Boner for Speaker.
Someone please get the Speaker a dictionary! Have him look up the word ‘courage’ before he let’s another obligation to the country go by.
So Boehner does something right and gets hammered. Option 2 is just stand by and do nothing?
Boehner will have help in snatching defeat from the jaws of Victory. Here is the response of the Congresscritter I tried to replace in the 2012 Texas Republican Primary:
Congressman Mac Thornberry is weighing in on the Eric Holder situation following Senator John Cornyns demands that holder resign as U.S. Attorney General.
Congressman Thornberry told us he disagrees with a lot of the actions Holder has taken, but says he recommends a different solution than Cornyns.
Congressman Thornberry says, From the beginning of his tenure, there have been a number of bad judgments that have been made. I think, though, the way to solve this is with the ballot box in November and electing a new administration.
Really?!?!? Sorry, Mac, but I have to disagree. Holder needs to be held in Contempt of Congress, and then forced to resign or be impeached for his actions/inactions!!!
The damage has been done, and so many lives were lost due to the decisions that Holder and his Department made. Hundreds of weapons were lost into the hands of the Mexican Drug Cartels. So many innocent people have been killed in Mexico with our weapons.
We have to stand up and do what is right and just - hold the responsible parties accountable!!! We can not continue to make nice with our friends in Washington and kick the can down the road for someone else - the voters in the case you state as your opinion - to take care of in November.
So youre OK if Holder just leaves his job in January when Obama doesnt get reelected - you call that accountability for the travesty that was done to Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and his family??? You call that justice???
Sorry Mac, I dont!!!
Absolutely unbelievable. The word coward is not strong enough to describe Boehner. My contempt for him and the congress knows no limit!
“If the bonehead actually pulls this off, Ill upgrade his rating from cojone-less RINO to RINO t*rd.”
TINO t*rd 2nd Class!
Correction: RINO t*rd 2nd Class!
