FINALLY! Some US House Republicans have the courage to hold Holder accountable!

Next to Impeach should be Boehner, and then Obama, as Boehner will not Impeach Obama.

If that isn’t the GOPe showing their true colors, I don’t know what is.

Anybody out there still think it’s feasable to ‘work within the party’? I’m also close to the point that unless the likes of Cruz, Palin, Lee, and some others don’t turn their back on the Republican Party I will question the seriousness of their words and their actions.

If the aforementioned are the real McCoy, the party bosses absolutely despise them. They will therefore never make any headway within the party.

Everyone knows time is short. Do we really have leadership or don’t we? Are those with money and influence willing to do what it takes to take this country back or aren’t we?

That 255-67 vote on criminal contempt, which included 17 Democrats, was tied to the Fast and Furious scandal and marked the first time Congress has found an attorney general in contempt.

And Holder was found in Criminal Content of Congress on June 28, 2012(!), the first time ever the U.S. Congress found an Attorney General of the U.S. in contempt.

Now, almost 17 months later, count me as extremely skeptical of any such impeachment proceedings.

Maybe that explains that only 322 reps cast votes (255-67). Who and where were the remaining 113?

Never happen...Holder is a true believer...

Besides...if he does in fact get impeached by the house and convicted by the Senate, that's as likely to happen as the sun not rising, he would get a nice multi million dollar job on wall street..

There is no wrong person to impeach in this administration, it’s more of a question of priority, Holder may not be number one but he’s up there.

No, it’s a good idea. Beat the snot out of them on every front possible and keep up the pressure. Make it hurt and make them scramble to try to cover multiple scandals and corrupt hacks. If managed properly it will have them chasing their tails to keep up with all of their misdeeds being addressed.

“...They are impeaching the wrong person......”
and
“...this is picking the wrong target... what a ninny.”

Nope. Think about it - Taking out the Guard Dog is the first thing you do. Holder’s the gatekeeper. And they have multiple provable instances of malfeasance and abuse of office against him - IF they can get Crybaby Boehner to actually find his gonads and stand up and get other spineless GOPers to step up.

Makes perfect sense.

I have a theory on the 'spying on AP' scandal, and I am right about this. Are you ready for this?..

The IRS scandal showed that the IRS targeted conservatives.

The DOJ scandal showed that the DOJ targeted the news media, which includes the AP. But, where is the evidence the AP was targeted? We only have EVIDENCE that Fox News (James Rosen) was targeted, and with a criminal warrant.

SO, it is my contention that the AP being spied upon IS A RED HERRING TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THE DOJ WASN'T JUST SPYING ON CONSERVATIVE MEDIA LEADING UP TO THE 2012 ELECTION, BUT THEY WERE ONLY SPYING ON FOX NEWS, NOT THE AP!!!

The DOJ was targeting conservatives ONLY, just as the IRS was targeting conservatives ONLY. This is a pattern across ALL OF THE AGENCIES under 0bama!!

ANY of Obama’s cohorts should be impeached. Obama is the obvious 1st choice, however.

That said, lest we forget who Obama’s firewall is? Eric Holder. So down he should go.

But of course, with the complicit Congress and Senate, these calls for fixing the corruption and holding the criminals accountable, will fall on deaf ears.

How unfortunate for America and all of us, that this government is SO broken....

God willing, something cracks and their house of cards falls, soon!

I think Cruz understands where we’re at. The people have no recourse as long as DC won’t listen. The regime has been deliberately spitting in our faces in order to convince us that resistance is futile because Congress will NEVER hold the executive accountable. There is a LOT of anger about Obamacare but currently (with the wimpy R leadership) no way to make that resistance effective. If we don’t FIND a way BEFORE PEOPLE GIVE UP ALTOGETHER the coup will finally be complete.

If this stuff starts brewing now the investigation phase could be done and the actual impeachment with the accompanying revelations could hit right before the 2014 election in which a LOT of Congress-critters have to at least PRETEND to listen to constituents - constituents who are increasingly running out of goodwill as their lives are being trampled by Obamacare and its economy busting. Politicians arguing that it’s just - tee-hee - the RULE OF LAW at stake.... might not be greeted with giggles in this atmosphere.

And if eyes are on the IRS for targeting the Tea Party, the regime might not find it so easy to stop the Tea Party rallies which create public pressure and burst the illusion that a race is close enough to be stolen.

We are literally fighting for our lives, and I think we’re at the critical point in the game where it’s late enough that people can sense the urgency but not so late that we’ve run out of clock.
