Skip to comments.Congressman: Holder must resign over ‘Fast and Furious’
Posted on 10/06/2011 11:13:40 AM PDT by martosko
Rep. Raul Labrador, an Idaho Republican, called on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign Thursday, after Operation Fast and Furious documents surfaced showing he knew about the scandal and its intricate details.
I first learned about Fast and Furious early this year from several of my constituents, Labrador said in a release. I then asked Chairman Issa to hold hearings on the topic. As I attended the hearings and reviewed the evidence, I was careful to not jump to any conclusions about the extent of Mr. Holders involvement. However, the recently published documents that directly link Mr. Holder to Fast and Furious have convinced me that he is either lying or grossly incompetent.

They need formal charges of perjury.
Simply having Holder resign is a worst-case scenario. He’ll be replaced with another stooge that the Senate will rubber stamp. There needs to be a special counsel appointed here and some folks need to go to jail.
I can think of a few more, including accessory to homicide, accessory to homicide involving a Federal Agent, and multiple violations of multiple Arms Control treaties.
What they really need to do is find out what the original intentions were of FF as well. Because it truly seems to me, it was an operation specifically directed to undermine the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.
If that was the case, not only were there felonies committed as mentioned above, but under the color of law, HIGH TREASON.
Last paragraph from Pajamas Media today:
“Between possible charges of accessory to murder, violations of international terrorism laws, felony violations of arms export laws, and possible treason, Franklins advice to hang together to avoid hanging separately is far more literal than anyone would have ever dreamed just a week ago.”
Resign hell! Jail time is the ticket! These sleazeballs need to taken down to the same level as us unwashed common dopes. Anybody else would be in jail already!
Sure he can resign and go to jail.
Impeach Holder and send him to Mexico for prosecution!
Eric Holder committed perjury? No, he just didn't understand the question that was asked.
A border guard was killed? Unfortunate result of a well-intentioned plan. Contrast that with the millions of people killed by George W. Bush in Iraq, Afghanistan, and New Orleans, and his responsibility for the deaths of Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Che Guevara, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Steve Jobs.
It's beyond disgusting, knowing most of Congress, the White House and all levels of government have nearly left America, our economy, our sovereignty and our confidence, dead on the floor.
Will any of these people resign? Hell no, they're running for reelection.
It seems like a 25 to life “Tour of Duty” in Ft. Leavenworth would be a suitable vacation for Mr. Holder.
Resign my ass. He and his boss need to go to jail for murder, or the very least manslaughter
Better yet, put Holder in a uniform with a badge and send him to Juarez.
BS! He needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Oh sure, send in Obama’s FBI to investigate. They’ll get right on the case.
...and arm him with a bean-bag gun!
Yes resign and face prosecution.
Stupid Republicans rubber stamped all of his nominations without question. That would be racist. I am so sick of race card politics. I just wish they would cart them both off to prison where they belong.
...ER, ....ya can’t impeach someone who was APPOINTED, not ELECTED.
Not true. Appointed judges are impeached, for example. The House can impeach any official in the executive or judicial branch.
