Skip to comments.Ted Cruz: Congress Should Impeach Eric Holder If He Takes No Action on IRS Targeting Scandal
Posted on 04/11/2014 4:31:21 AM PDT by servo1969
In a Thursday appearance on Sean Hannity's radio program, Cruz said Holder should be impeached for "defying Congress and the rule of law." He said Holder's actions were not in the spirit of the Department of Justice, which Cruz said has "a bipartisan tradition of resisting partisan pressure and upholding the rule of law." Cruz cited examples of Holder's predecessors (Janet Reno and Elliot Richardson, respectively) from Bill Clinton's and Richard Nixon's administrations.
Cruz said he was "very pleased" that Lerner was held in contempt by the House Committee but noted that the Justice Department has not indicted one person eight months after the inspector general concluded that the IRS had wrongfully targeted conservative groups. He blistered the Obama administration for appointing a Democrat who was a bundler for Obama's campaign to head the IRS investigation, and he said that would be akin to John Mitchell investigating Richard Nixon.

I know what he’s doing. it is a process that one needs to go through to bring up an issue when one does not have the MSM behind you. (I posed the question because it is true...he is guilty of many crimes, along with zer0)
I made the obvious point...that is not so obvious to the MSM. who published this article? Breitbart. who reads Breitbart....we....the choir. preaching to the choir has some merits. This needs to saturate the media. but neither you, nor I, nor Breitbart nor Ted Cruz have any idea how to get this out to the country.
now if the House were to impeach Holder it would get out. Of course it will be vilified by the MSM, but at least it will be in the news...
Exactly, tyranny flourishes when good men do nothing. This is the only reason to impeach him regardless of everything else the background noise will try to drown it out with. The establishment Republicans look only to their latest Nielsen ratings rather than justice as their calling.
Hey SFB impeach him!
Love Ted but ...uh...Janet Reno?
Somebody help me here.

Why impeach? These criminals should be in jail!
Mr Farenthold agrees..
Well, I had the opportunity to talk to Sen Cruz about FR, when I met him, last week.
I actually got him aside for a few minutes, and asked if he knew of the FReepers. He looked a bit puzzled, and then I said "Free Republic. You have quite a group of supporters there. Even the owner, JR, is a big fan of yours." Sen Cruz said, "God bless you all!"
(and ya never tell where yer best fishin' spot is d:^)
Go, Ted, GO!!
Why bother with jail. Drag 'em out back and beat the sh!t out of 'em.
Love Ted but ...uh...Janet Reno? Somebody help me here.
It's implicit, as in, "Holder is worse than Janet Reno", heheh.
Cruz is taking on democrat crooks. Trust me, that’s important.
Tea Partyers, Libertarians Join ‘New Ruby Ridge’ Ranching Battle

Tea party groups and Libertarians have joined in the widening battle over grazing rights between Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and federal authorities.
Elected officials in states ranging from Arizona to Washington were rushing to Nevada on Thursday night after watching a startling video of an angry clash between protesters, including private militias, and U.S. Bureau of Land Management rangers, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Not as important as stopping a war. He is one of only two US Senators that men from Maine and NH will listen to.
We need to read what Dick Morris has to say too about Rep Mike Rodgers dragging his feet on Benghazi because his wife runs the company that was contracted to provide security. Nepotism runs deep in DC.
I don’t trust any of them because most are in it not to serve the USA people, but to serve their bank account or their bundler pals.
Both Parties are full of corruption and the bigoted establishment media tries to make the Tea Party look bad. Dyed in wool Party partisans often cant see the problems with their own.
I looked that Umberto Calvini up and it came from a 2009 American German movie “The International” that was about the corruption of the fictitious bank IBCC which was a play on the real BCCI.
I’ve never heard of that movie, and apparently it didn’t get much play from Hollywood or USA media. Sounds interesting.
The level of corruption that has entered the Federal Government in the last 15 years is shocking. DC is starting to look like Moscow or Beijing. Difference is the people in DC want to destroy their country while they loot it rather than build it up.
I think we have to get private companies of any kind away from military/intelligence/police type matters. The potential for abuse is too great. Nothing intelligence or security related should be being performed by anyone who is not a direct, accountable employee of the gov’t. The profit motive should play no role in these sensitive areas. It’s one thing to hire a private company to sweep the floors, but having private firms and contractors actually doing spying or even formulating policy, as is increasingly the case, is absurd and will guarantee very serious corruption.
I agree when the private sector gets involved it means the profit motive will inevitably work to create incentives for more of it. That might sound counter conservative to some, but that’s the way the system works and what ends up being corrupt and fascist. There are areas of privatization that work and other areas that corrupt.
I heard a great conservative (his name eludes me) speak on exactly this recently pertaining to private prisons. He said the incentives that come from private prisons are exactly opposite from public interest. The incentive of this industry is not to expand a law abiding society with fewer prison inmates, less judicial corruption but more inmates and more prisons.
The same with a private military or intelligence. Get the private sector out where their incentive is more war etc.. The government may not be perfect but it doesn’t lobby itself with a profit motive that leads to bribes.
