Dead Americans and Mexicans, dead US Federal Agents, Obama sold guns to the Mexican drug cartels, Obama violated US law, Obama illegally transported guns into Mexico, Obama lied about it all.

This is cause for impeachment!

It is about time they went after these criminal scum. Now the test will be to see if this genuine or just political show. They should be able to nail Holder and let us hope that Obama gets subpoenaed too.

Never happen. Unless the House can appoint a Special Counsel and don’t believe they can. Believe it has to come from the communists controlled DOJ.

OH, how I long for the NON Politically correct days, when at least ONE reporter or politician would have the balls to say aloud that Holder was not “factually incorrect” or he “misled” but rather, that
“THE SOB INTENTIONALLY LIED TO THE US CONGRESS!”

That Sinaloa son Zembada on trial in Chicago? Docs on that case site him saying that total KIA for F&F guns is THREE THOUSAND DEAD, not the 200 number cited 3 weeks ago by the Mexican AG.

THREE THOUSAND DEAD..!

He was the right hand man of Sasquatch (our first completely incompetent Attorney General). He helped cover up everything he could about what really went on at Waco. Basically said the Davidians were responsible for what happened.

And my earlier comment about him getting away with only applies to this earth.

There will be a reckoning elsewhere, with a Judge that knows the truth.

I do remember that the gun count went from several dozen to a couple hundred to now maybe several thousand guns bought by the us gov and given to killers in mexico. And hand grenades are now involved. Why was Nixon investigated? What did he do to get forced from office? When the F will the GOP stand up and enforce the laws AS STATED and stop awarding Rangel?

“This presidency is over.”

The funny thing is, if the Republicans will ever get their S together, I don’t want zero out of office. If he is forced out, that will give them the perfect excuse to run the hildabeast. If they can also work it to make it look as if he was forced out of office by the Republicans, the gullible sheeple in this country might just buy it.

Four years of the hildabeast would just about be as bad as four more years of zero.

Holder was deputy attorney general under Reno and declared that he was pleased that his department had been cleared of wrongdoing in the matter, despite what Americans clearly saw on their own TV sets, and said, “David Koresh and certain Branch Davidians were responsible for Waco.” ...

Holder needs to go down...with Obama next to him.

Obama is asking Holder:

“Do you LOVE ME, Eric? Do You?
Just pull that trigger, and the ONE! is saved, Eric.”

Can't disagree with you about Hillary. Hillary's problem would be that blacks would never believe that Obama not running would have been orchestrated by the Clinton's. No black voting block makes Hillary unelectable.

“Hillary’s problem would be that blacks would never believe that Obama not running would have been orchestrated by the Clinton’s.”

Unfortunately she’d still be able to wheel out “the bent one.” He did a better job of suckering blacks into believing he was ‘one of them’ than just about anyone else I’ve seen. And he appears to still have that ‘magic’.

Let's look at the scale. On the left side of the scale we have Obama is not allowed to run for a second term; on the right side of the scale we have Hillary becomes the lily white Democrat replacement for Obama who will rely on Bill's magic to win. Sorry there ain't no BLACK MAGIC in that scenario. Maybe if Hillary divorces Bill and marries Al Sharpton you have a case.

The regime will wait until the halloween to announce that eric holder has to step down due to family complications. It will be left hanging in the wind as the last few rejects got shot down pretty quick. I like the “the pressure of the job is too much” . I also like “the people that get me my coffee are not sufficiently liberal”. If you have ever worked for a liberal like I have you will despise these people. I do not hate them. That is a waste of energy . It is perplexing to me that a rich liberal will walk across the street to avoid a bum. I was there. I saw it and I was amazed. If you ever go to a haagen-dazs in mid jersey you are giving this woman money. Her son is actually a very nice person, so you are giving a very decent person a good life. His father is a turd. Having sex with the secretary. I guess I was lucky to grow up poor with two parents that loved each other. And chickens,ducks,2 nubian goats and 10 german shepherds.

Absolutely! If he’s questioned in an aggressive no-spin manner the trail of criminality will lead inevitably to Obama. This international crime that has resulted in the death and maiming of innocent people definitely fits the Impeachment requirement of “high crimes and misdemeanors” as set forth in Article II., Section 4., of the U.S. Constitution.

“This is cause for impeachment!”

If each of those allegations are proven in a court of law, then I believe this would be cause for the death penalty.

Oh, this is going to suck for Obama, because it will take over a year to get anywhere and by then, Obama will be toast. I guess being the Most Transparent President in the Universe means people are starting to see right through him.
