Exclusive – Rep. Pete Olson: Impeach Eric Holder
Breitbart ^ | July 3, 2014 | Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX)

Posted on 07/03/2014 8:20:36 AM PDT by jazusamo

A glance at current headlines reveals that Central American children are flooding across our porous Southern border at an alarming rate, thanks to the Obama White House refusing to enforce existing immigration laws. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the federal agency in charge of collecting taxes from hard working Americans, is still under investigation (and refusing to cooperate) for targeting and harassing citizens based on their political beliefs.

All of this happens while US Attorney General Eric Holder, the chief law enforcement officer in the United States, only enforces the laws that fit Obama's agenda.

Thanks in large part to Obama's Executive Orders that disregard current immigration laws, we have a cataclysmic crisis escalating along the Texas border that was created by this White House. Both the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and "Catch and Release" policies have encouraged a flood of undocumented immigrants.

Since Eric Holder won't investigate a rogue IRS, House Republicans continue to demand answers on these scandals. None of the information we have uncovered is good, and, unfortunately, our questions remain unanswered. Last week we also discovered that U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was a target of the IRS, yet Holder still refuses to investigate.

..and why are thousands upon thousands of illegals being allowed to pour into the U.S.??? Because THE ONLY WAY HOLDER KEEPS HIS JOB IS IF THE DEMS KEEP CONTROL OF THE SENATE AND THAT’S ONLY POSSIBLE IF ENOUGH DEMOCRAT VOTERS ARE IMPORTED FROM ABROAD!

On the short term, there wouldn’t be enough “new” voters to make a difference. Holder cannot possibly import enough to make sufficient dent in the voting patterns in those swing districts where the surge could make a difference.

Impeaching Eric Holder is a good first step. But first, get him disbarred, which does NOT require Congressional action.

Lots of dramatic talk from Republicans in Congress who all but 12 voted to make John Boehner the Speaker at the beginning of the current session after Boehner cut a deal with Obama to continue spending too much money and raise taxes early in 2013.

Even though many of them voted NO in the ranks of the GOP, they are complicit (they voted for the leaders) in their leaders approval of the Patty Murray-Paul Ryan budget plan that created new taxes this year and cut military pensions, along with the debt ceiling increase that followed earlier this year.

We have underneath all this noise about other issues like the border the simple fact that a Uniparty in Washington increases spending and debt, raises taxes and will continue to do more of it as this country goes down the same tube as Italy and Greece and other European countries have.

That is not the House's problem. If a congressman believes that the Attorney General is violating his oath of office that congressman is duty bound to draw up articles of impeachment.

Same goes for Obama.

The re-election of Obama and the continuation of Eric Holder in office cost me, personally, 20% in salary.

And those who build coal plants? Yep, 100% loss in salary for some.

Agreed, and I’m all for the House impeaching even though there’ll be no conviction now.

It may get a few patriotic Dems thinking if there are any.

We don’t have to imprison these traitors. All that needs to be done is put them in a position where they have to talk or go to jail. Then, the DNC will start rubbing them out before then can blab. Problem solved!

Their crimes will certainly have to be carried on national media. That in itself is worth the US House effort, not to mention the chapters in tomorrow's history books.

Issa said last week he had sent 4 criminal charges against Lerner to the DOJ and Holder had done nothing.

This impeachment would be a good start. He should have been out after he fired the investigator who had the goods on Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson and stopped the investigations.

Then merge the Benghazi and IRS committees and call the committee the Impeachment Investigation committee and lets light the fire under the Hero of Benghazi.

Holder will resign to spend more time with his family. Then a year later some dem corporation will hire him and his new law firm to slough him a salary.

It’s still hard to believe they got away with firing Walpin, that should have been the handwriting on the wall for Holder and 0bama.

The illegal acts just continued to grow subsequent to that and letting the New Black Panthers off the hook.

Mr. Olsen is part of the problem. He, and the rest of Congress, have sat on their hands while Holder has ignored our Constitution, chosen the laws he wants to obey, and thumbed his nose at their subpeonas for six years!

Now, we are being invaded by children and gang members and DHS and DOJ are welcoming this disaster. Where is Holder? He is absent. He is the worst AG since WW11.

Wondering where Pete has been. You can always tell when it’s getting close to election time because up he pops. Last presser we received from him was about his enjoying a BBQ lunch with the elder President Bush.

Would be great to see him actually get involved in issues involving the flood of illegals coming into Texas, lack of treatment available to Veterans in his District, reigning in government spending, getting rid of Boner, keeping the EPA out of Texas, etc. Holder is not going to be impeached as long as Obama is around. We have a lot more pressing issues that our Texas Congressmen need to and should be addressing as a group where their impact could be felt.

Our family gave up on Pete several elections ago. Such a buffoon. Too bad we can’t find someone like Louie Gohmert in our District to run against him.

If Attorney General Eric Holder had an ounce of decency in him he would resign.

morphing libertarian:" Holder will resign to spend more time with his family.
Then a year later some dem corporation will hire him and his new law firm to slough him a salary."

As stated in post #9 :
alloysteel:" Impeaching Eric Holder is a good first step.
But first, get him disbarred, which does NOT require Congressional action."(emphasis mine)
Now that will get his attention !

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was a target of the IRS, yet Holder still refuses to investigate.

If they did "investigate" would any rational person believe that it had been done credibly?

Holder has already been found in Contempt of Congress. The House Republicans could have the House Sergeant at Arms arrest Holder and imprison him in the Capitol Hill Police jail. They won't do it because they are Obama's partners in crime.

House could arrest Holder with inherent contempt power

Regardless. Impeach him. It's the right thing to do. Force the Senate to make a choice between doing what is easy and doing what is right. Let them be held accountable. Allowing them to dodge the issue is a mistake.

I remember when those articles came out and Holder saying he’d stay well into 2014. I personally don’t believe he’ll resign.

There is one thing he is not correct on.

It is not Eric Holder who needs to be impeached, but his boss!!

and that’s only possible if enough democrat voters are ILLEGALLY imported from abroad!

...and that would be a charge of TREASON, a little different from what it takes for impeachment.
