U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Az.) told Patriot Network TV that Congress should start “the rattles of impeachment” against U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
“This attorney general has got plenty of wrongdoings,” said Gosar. “He’s lied to Congress in the James Rosen case, he said he didn’t know anything about the warrant, and he actually signed the warrant…. not a stamp, he actually signed it.”
The Arizona Republican added that Attorney General Eric Holder’s actions against Texas and its voter ID law — in opposition to the Supreme Court — is also an impeachable offense.
In addition to Rep. Gosar’s statements, a new report shows that Holder and his men remain to be “insulated from meaningful public scrutiny and accountability” despite the fact that a watchdog revealed that they are responsible for more than 650 ethics violations!
We’ve got to keep the pressure up and continue to rally Congress and demand that House and Senate members fire Eric Holder and hold him accountable for his crimes!
In front of the National Press Club in Washington, DC, a coalition of black pastors recently called on Congress to impeach the U.S. Attorney General.
The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) in February said that Mr. Holder has violated his Official Oath by overriding the will and laws of several states regarding the institution of marriage.
In a statement, CAAP said:
“Attorney General Holder in particular has used the influence of his office and role as the chief law enforcement figure in our nation to try to coerce states to fall in line with the same-sex ‘marriage’ agenda. Millions of voters in thirty states have voted to defend marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but Attorney General Holder is attempting single-handedly to throw those votes away … Attorney General Holder should be impeached by Congress.”
These pastors are right: Eric holder has violated his oath of office… many, many times. But unless Congress takes action and agrees to impeach him, the Attorney General is safe to continue to break the law!
This is why we are urging you to stand up today and call on Congress to impeach, convict, and remove AG Eric Holder from office for committing “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Right now there is a resolution alive in the House of Representatives that would do this very thing, but it needs our support to move forward. That’s why we’re asking you to rally lawmakers now in support of House Resolution 411 to impeach Eric Holder!
refusing to comply with a court order issued by the House Oversight Committee seeking documentation regarding the gun-running Operation Fast and Furious;
failing to enforce laws such as the Defense of Marriage Act, the Controlled Substance Act, and the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986 despite his official oath to “faithfully discharge the duties of the office”;
refusing to indict IRS workers associated with the unlawful disclosure of tax records and targeting individuals based upon their political views; and,
lying under oath before Congress on May 15, 2013 regarding the Justice Department’s investigation of the press.
Despite the House’s decision in 2012 placing the Attorney General in contempt of Congress – an action never before taken against a sitting cabinet member in our history – Eric Holder continues to stonewall Congress and withhold the truth.
As Resolution co-sponsor Rep. Ted Yoho says, Congress must take “drastic action” against the Attorney General:
“The Attorney General’s blatant disregard for the law has brought us to this point. Officials should be held accountable to the citizens they serve and it is our duty to bring that accountability back to government. It is time we restore justice to the very department that shares its name.”
“In recent years, I have grown increasingly concerned by Holder’s actions – and those of others in the Obama Administration – to disregard the laws and the Constitution they have sworn to defend. The lawlessness at the Department of Justice – of this Administration – must end now. That is why I am announcing today my co-sponsorship of H.Res. 411.”
With Eric Holder responsible for obstructing justice, aiding money laundering operations, and furnishing Mexican drug cartels with thousands of weapons — sharing responsibility for the death of U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexicans — it’s time for Congress to charge and convict him for his crimes and remove him from office!
Act now and demand federal lawmakers to sponsor H. Res. 411 and fire Eric Holder!
