Senate Republican leaders on Tuesday said there should be an investigation of Attorney General Eric Holder, but stopped short of joining Sen. John Cornyns (R-Texas) call for his resignation.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) told reporters that many GOP lawmakers share Cornyns frustrations with the Justice Department.
We certainly need to have an investigation of what has happened, and I think John Cornyn speaks for a lot of us as to the frustration we feel about not only the national security leaks, the "Fast and Furious" matter there's been a whole litany of problems coming out of the Justice Department, McConnell said.
I'm listening carefully to what my colleagues are saying. I think we're all unhappy with the performance of the attorney general, he said.
Cornyn, a member of the Judiciary Committee and chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, called for Holder to step down at a Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday morning where the attorney general testified before lawmakers.
Youve violated the public trust in my view and by failing and refusing to perform the duties of your office, Cornyn told Holder.
Mr. Attorney General, it is more with sorrow than anger that I would say that you leave me no alternative but to join those who call upon you to resign your office.

Any other kind?
How else are they going to hand the election over to Obama, if Holder is gone?
When can Boner be primarried?
John Sherman Cooper is most likely spinning in his grave. McConnell is an eunuch as are many of his colleagues.
A decent American Conservative man would punch Mitch McConjob in the mouth if he met him face-to-face. If that man ever had a pair of balls, they’ve shriveled away in the DC slimelight.
Color of skin did not inhibit Obama from ascending to the Presidency of the United States.
Color of skin did not inhibit Holder from ascending to the position of Attorney General of the United States.
Being a pair of screwups will take them down, NOT racism.
So, where have you been the past couple of years, you jerk?
If the GOP takes the Senate in 2012 and keeps Mitch McConnell as the leader, then I’m going to start actually voting for Dems for the first time in my life.
I’m tired of giving these cowards power only to have them stab us in the back over and over.
>>>How else are they going to hand the election over to Obama, if Holder is gone?>>>
If you mean what I think you do, then I agree. Holder is a distinct loss for Obama. If Holder goes down, Zero will just appoint another Attorney General.
But the Repubs are right to publicly criticize him to keep his name in front of the voters. That doesn’t mean that they’re Rinos by not truly trying to get rid of Holder.
Every two years. I wish someone would do it. I assume you mean Speaker Boehner.

U.S. House Speaker John Boehner soundly defeated his latest Republican challenger by more than a 5 to 1 margin to allow him to serve a 12th term representing Ohios 8th Congressional District.
Now Cornyn knows how Henry Hyde felt.
Actually I think this may be an orchestrated event and if is it actually orchestrated it is brilliant.
Cornyn has the clout as committee chair to ge the press to call out Holder
but McConnell takes away the media’s ability to criticize the Repubs on this issue
and you know the medai would be all over the GOP like they try to do on every other issue.
It is sad but many people actually believe it is the GOP who is preventing 0dumbo from turning things around, thanks to the medai
so in this case I think Cornyn and McConnell are hadnling it just right
Sorrow? Really? Maybe you should write him a strongly worded letter asking him to resign......meh
McConnell wool be ousted just like Lugar. They just don’t get it.
