Trey Gowdy to Eric Holder: Prosecute Lerner, Prove You're a Real AG
Newsmax ^ | Wednesday, 09 Apr 2014

Posted on 04/09/2014 7:50:15 PM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

Attorney General Eric Holder must take seriously congressional allegations against former IRS official Lois Lerner if he is to be trusted as the nation's top law enforcement official, Rep. Trey Gowdy says.

"What happened today was really big . . . You remember when the president said there's not a smidgen of criminality?" Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"So, now you have the Ways and Means, which is one of the more widely respected committees in Congress, sending three separate, potential criminal acts to the Department of Justice and a referral.

"This is a perfect opportunity for [Holder] to prove his law enforcement credentials and not his political credentials . . . If you want to be taken seriously as a top law enforcement official in the country, you better handle this investigation in a way that generates public confidence," Gowdy said Wednesday.

I’d like to see Obama prosecuted as well. They all need to be locked up and the key tossed into the sea.

What he should of said is: Now Show us you are a real AG and prosecute her or we will LOCK YOU BOTH UP IN OUR JAIL FOR INHERENT CONTEMPT

Where is the media like they so gleefully reported in Oct 1973? (that is a rhetorical question)

Yeah, but everyone knew that Obama was just bullexcrementing.

We need to figure out a way to work Trey Gowdy upwards in the authority chain, maybe, even, to president someday.

So far, he seems way too good and commonsense to leave at his level.

In a TV snippet tonight I saw a vicious Eric the Red mouthing off at Texas Sen. Louie Gohmert during a hearing.

It was outrageous and totally unsettling!

The Attorney General is a fascist the same as Obama....except Obama stays cool under fire while seething inwardly with well-concealed rage....while Adolf Holder seethes with overt, uncontrolled, erupting anger when someone turns the heat on him.

Our very lives and futures are in the hands of fascists and psychopaths embedded in the highest levels of the land.

I don't have an ounce of doubt about it...nor should anyone else.

Good evening lovely lady.

Our very lives and futures are in the hands of fascists and psychopaths embedded in the highest levels of the land.

Unfortunately, you are correct.

I agree with you. And I am still not convinced that Obama is going to leave the White House when his term is up.

I make a habit never to refer to the occupier of the White House as "President".

He can’t prosecute because she may give up his boss.

The congress cannot be so naive as to give this to holder for delay after delay.

It needs to go independent.

I'm equally convinced that Obama will NOT cling to the drapes when it's the prescribed time to swish out of the White House.

He's a man with a plan, an agenda....and the energy, money, backers and abilities to do even more damage out of office than in.

He and Moochelle Antoinette will surely miss the trappings of his office, but she can still live in high-income luxury....and he will enjoy considerably more freedom to plot his own course to destroy this country.

I just hope he leaves office in some sort of utter disgrace or scandal that would throw a wrench into any nefarious future plans he holds.

Whether you’re right or wrong, why don’t we all jump ship and move to another country? Take your pick.

Well,...... thereafter Holder was spouting out at some affair he was speaking at...saying....”Have you ever heard of a U.S. Gov. Official being treated this way”....(He was hot!)...then he mentioned Obama being treated badly as well. So Trey got to Holder regardless.

No doubt he’ll make it a race issue...I was listening to the radio when I heard him but didn’t catch the first part, or what station....wish i had been paying closer attention now.

I’d rather keep the key and toss the criminals into the sea.

Give the guy a break------Eric gets a severe case of constipation everytime he has to enforce a law.

Dollars to donuts the AG's been diagnosed w/ the dreaded "impacted bowels:" his testiness, that look of anguish, the testy way he sits down on those hard, unforgiving chairs.

Doesn't Congress know asking Eric to enforce laws makes his bowels back up into his throat? Prolly Eric will need surgery so he won't choke on his own excrement.

Only reason he's stepping down..... is b/c he's so backed up.

O's a man with a plan, an agenda....and after the WH, he'll have tons of money stashed offshore, sycophants and backers and the evil will to do even more damage to our country. Moochelle Antoinette will miss the trappings of his office, but she can still live in high-income luxury....

Mrs O has B-I-G ambitions----remember how her pricey China trip w/ entourage was "sold" to Americans as a "non-political" visit...just there to chat up education.

MISSION CREEP The final WH explanation was that the China trip and the tripe she was pedaling was "soft diplomacy," to "ease tensions" between the US and China......setting her up to do a Hillary.

The China trip and "diplomacy fake" was also part of O's bribe to get himself out of hot water---after the blonde debacle at the Mandela Memorial. Moocher also got the $12,000 Hererra dress and the state dinner to hostess.
