The Fast and Furious gun running outrage is approaching the boiling point. There is a Contempt of Congress charge hanging over Holder and in yesterday’s hearing on the matter, Texas Senator John Cornyn forcefully added his name to the list calling for the Attorney General to resign.
“There’s been zero accountability at the Department of Justice. You wont appoint a special prosecutor in the face of a potential conflict of interest. You wont tell the truth about what you know and when you knew it on Fast and Furious. You wont cooperate with a legitimate congressional investigation. You won’t answer my questions about gun walking in Texas. You won’t take any responsibility for the failure of your inner circle.”
“You still resist coming clean about what you knew and when you knew it with regard to Operation Fast and Furious. You won’t cooperate with a legitimate Congressional investigation, and you won’t hold anyone, including yourself, accountable. Your Department blocks states from implementing attempts to combat voter fraud. In short, you’ve violated the public trust, in my view, and by failing and refusing to perform the duties of your office,” Cornyn said.
“So, Mr. Attorney General, it’s more with sorrow than regret or anger that I would say you leave me with no alternative but to join those that call upon you to resign your office,” Cornyn told Holder. “Americans deserve an attorney general that will be honest with them.”
