More questioning of the arrogant and dishonorable Attorney General Eric Holder took place on Capitol Hill Tuesday. This time, the questioning wasn't solely focused on the Fast & Furious scandal, but was targeted primarily at the recent national security leaks & the need for a special prosecutor outside the Justice Department, along with some mention of the DoJ's obstruction of state Voter ID laws as well.
Sen. Cornyn outlined a laundry list of Holder's dirty deeds, and capped it off by joining the call for his resignation and further expressed that “it is my sincere hope President Obama replaces you.”
Note to the so-called 'leadership' among the GOP Senate ranks: Back your guys up, McConnell and Thune, or step down, because it's your counter-productive timidity that's weakening not only the Party, but any resolve against these unbridled statists in the Obama administration!
Next, even Sen. Graham (yes, Lindsey RINO Grahamnesty!) couldn't swallow the hypocrisy of Holder handpicking an independent council to investigate all of the leaks coming from his boss' White House.
By the way, anybody recall then-Senators Biden and Obama calling for special prosecutors on separate matters in '07 and '08; yet, an independent special prosecutor isn’t warranted for a leak investigation into this administration that has put our national security at risk?
Then towards the end of Sen. Sessions' line of questioning, Holder was asked point blank, "Couldn't it be that you provided the leaks?"
And simply because of that suspicion is exactly why special prosecutors looking into these leaks should truly be independent...but don't expect that to happen as long as Holder's making the calls.
So in the end, some will still say this is too civil, or that it's just another dog-and-pony show. And perhaps they're correct to some degree. But with all that Holder is wrapped up in, this procedural questioning must occur. Will this further the call to hold this man in contempt (a charge well past due)? Because let's face it: the man isn't resigning, and his boss isn't going to fire him. Then begs a more direct question: Will this man be held accountable for...well, any of these offenses? This depends on Republican resilience and coalescence...and time's ticking away, Congress.
