Rep. Olson Introduces Articles of Impeachment Against Eric Holder
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | November 13, 2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 11/13/2013 6:03:18 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) has introduced an Articles of Impeachment resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder for his role in Operation Fast and Furious and other scandals of President Barack Obama’s administration.

Seven congressman have signed onto the resolution thus far in addition to Olson. They are Reps. Larry Bucshon (R-IN), Blake Farenthold (R-TX), Phil Roe (R-TN), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), Roger Williams (R-TX), Ted Yoho (R-FL), and Randy Weber (R-TX).

The Articles of Impeachment has four different sections. The first calls for Holder’s official removal because of his failure to comply with congressional subpoenas relating to Operation Fast and Furious. Holder has been voted on a bipartisan basis into both criminal and civil contempt of Congress for his failure to comply with the Fast and Furious subpoenas from House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA).

The second section of the Articles of Impeachment deals with Holder’s refusal to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the Controlled Substances Act, and the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986. The third section calls for Holder’s impeachment on the grounds that he has refused to prosecute any IRS officials involved in the “scandal of unauthorized disclosure of tax records belonging to political donors.”(continued)

Let them scream racism all they want, the only thing that will do is bring more unwanted attention to all those scandals and the why they have even treated their own constituents ( usefull idiots ) it’s attention that they don’t want or ill afford to have.

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.

What Holder SHOULD do:

He SHOULD resign in shame or,
he SHOULD be fired.

Should he be impeached? Yes, if he does not resign
or is not fired. However, we know that the lack of
support for what SHOULD be supported will thrust more
grief upon those seeking impeachment than it ever
will on Holder.

Also, with Benghazi, IRS, and Ocare going on the folks
out there are already buried in scandal overload,
I fear.

That would be Pete Olson who strongly supports Boner. This move really surprises me as he has turned into a babbling idiot this last year. But then again election is coming.

I can think of three better places to send him- LSP @ Angola, MSP (Parchman), or Huntsville (TX).

They need to act like Luis Guiterrez. Say they have 20 Democrats and 210 Republicans for impeachment of Holder.

There are Democrats who will vote for impeachment because it will affect their gun rights record.

Someone like John Barrow GA might be against voting for Holder because of voter fraud and black voters in his community.

Call his office tomorrow or send a nice letter by fax (they basically ignore emails) telling him how much you appreciate his courage and vision! They care MUCH more about what their own constituents think than anything else.

Yes, Holder IS a racist.

I’d like it brought up that he refused to prosecute any civil rights cases where the victim was white.

Thanks for posting!

I've bad-mouthed Pete in the past as a good conservative but one with no passion or fight, always seemed to avoid the spotlight or controversy.

Well, I can't be prouder of my US Rep today. ...I take it all back!

Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Texas's 22nd district

IMO Holder does need to be sent to prison - but this is a long stretch. But there are many other issues I wish Olson would attack first which might have a quicker return on his investment - like heading up a group to elect Gohmert as Speaker, getting rid of Obamacare or at least getting rid of the subsidies for Congressmen and forcing them into the exchange, stopping the funding for EPA, Energy, Homeland Security and Education, stopping all the funding for any discretionary spending, shutting down the border and stopping government benefits for illegals in his own home state - to name just a few. Of course he won’t touch the illegal issue because it involves his big business contributors.

Pete likes to do things he thinks are dramatic and will get his name in the headlines, regardless of whether they have any real chance of success or not, rather than doing the things they can accomplish without having to go through the Senate.

Would be nice to see him openly support efforts being made by Cruz if he wants to do something easy that would be meaningful.

Interesting that he has chosen to join with Randy Weber who, unlike Pete, has some real grassroots and TEA Party support. Know Randy personally and he is Conservative to the core.
