RNC Chairman calls for Holder resignation
Washington Examiner ^ | May 14, 2013 | Susan Ferrechio

Posted on 05/14/2013 10:16:10 AM PDT by Uncle Miltie

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus believes Attorney General Eric Holder should resign for tapping the phones of the Associated Press, calling the move a violation of the First Amendment. Here is his statement:

“Freedom of the press is an essential right in a free society. The First Amendment doesn’t request the federal government to respect it; it demands it. Attorney General Eric Holder, in permitting the Justice Department to issue secret subpoenas to spy on Associated Press reporters, has trampled on the First Amendment and failed in his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. Because Attorney General Holder has so egregiously violated the public trust, the president should ask for his immediate resignation. If President Obama does not, the message will be unmistakable: The President of the United States believes his administration is above the Constitution and does not respect the role of a free press.”

The Second Amendment doesn’t request the federal government to respect it either; it demands it too.

Knee-jerk reaction, Reince. Don’t overplay your hand. You just gave Holder cover.

Surprisingly, Holder is recusing himself from the IRS Political Audit scandal. I expected him to throw us the finger, stay in office, and double down on the scandals.

In fact, at some point, I expect him to still. I expect him to not only stay in office, but start working these intimidation tactics right out in public.

I seriously expect him to simply say it outright: "Hey, AP, if you want to NOT be destroyed by the government, YOU WILL DO AS WE SAY! ... and I DARE anyone to try and stop me!!!!"

tapping the phones

Where did we have tapping the phones - did I miss it?

All I heard was seizing phone records.

Doesn't that just mean who called who, and when?

Nice talk, but where were you when We The People’s rights were being infringed upon?

Where was your outrage when the Constitution was being dismantled piece by piece over the years?

BTW, a free press is useless unless it is also a responsible press. With freedom comes responsibility.

Eric Holder is as hard to dislodge as a leech or a woodtick, and much more of a blood-sucker than either of those other two lower forms of life.

Intimidation is just part of Holder’s character, or rather, lack of such. Doubling-down is just a reflex action. Nothing short of physical restraint and incarceration is likely to deter his behavior in the least.

Shame and decency are meaningless concepts, so far as either concerns Eric Holder.

Every telephone conversation is now being recorded. Obviously, not all can be listened to, so they are passively recorded and screened for buzz words thru special software.

When they get their hands on phone call records, then they can go back and listen to conversations that occurred at specific times of interest.

Nonsense.
This is exactly what we all need to do.
Holder must resign.
Many of us have been demanding this, since the New Black Panther Party mess, and the Contempt of Court for the Gulf drilling, and the Contempt of Congress over Fast and Furious.

What? What? Our people are reaching down and discovering they have a pair? OMG!

A word of caution to Peince Priebus - if you talk about the "Constitution' or us the term "Amendment" Homeland Security will check you out as a possible 'domestic terrorist'... Be careful... Homeland Security and the IRS are playing from the same playbook...

No he’s recusing from the AP leak scandal not the IRS scandal. An earlier thread was wrong.

No—Holder doesn’t have to resign. He needs to stand trail for Fast and Furious, hopefully get convicted, and spend many years in jail.

All IMHO, of course.

Did they tap the phones or just get phone records?

From what I understand, it was just the phone records. Not that it isn’t bad, but not quite the same thing.

resign? okay as long as he gets charged and prosecuted. A Holder resignation in order to escape legal proceedings is unacceptable as it is also unacceptable for the obozo hussein and the hildahag

This is what will happen during the next few days. As the pressure grows for Holder to resign, a 'journalist' will say something like this:

"Some people are saying there is a racial element at play here, that President Obama and Attorney General Holder are being singled out for criticism because of their race."

They never explain who the "some people" are because there aren't any. They make up the charge out of the whole cloth and then run with it.

Poor Jay Carney - he can't flash a Race Card. Maybe he can come out as Bi-Sexual or something.

Nice try, Reince

Have Holder resign for something that did not happen, at least with the scenario being talked about.

He should resign and face justice for fast and furious, not prosecuting Black Panthers for voter intimidation of WHITE voters (racism at it's finest,) his compliance in Benghazi, scuttling the prosecutions of Islamic terrorist Hamas supporting CAIR members, etc etc. HolderGhazi (I don't use HolderGate) contains a myriad more of his crimes of treason for which he should be tried and punished as per law. (We know what that is)

Bring those up Reince and you will be really doing something significant.

No calls for resignation for fast and furious, benghazi, irs but let them tap the media’s phones and now he is outraged? I am holding back on ap wiretap pending more info. It could be the commies in AP deserved wiretapping. Of course one set of commies wiretapping another set of commies is kind of pointless.

Not just resignation, but trials for treason as a traitor and enabler of crimes committed by "Holder's people" and terrorists etc.

All Holder has to do is to explain that the AP had accidentally hired some young, idealistic reporters who had the nerve to try and be objective in their reporting. All liberals will completely understand and agree that something drastic needed to be done to deal with that threat to the Obama administration.
