Should Attorney General Eric Holder Resign? [POLL]
Add Senator John Cornyn to the list of lawmakers calling for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign. Cornyn added his name to the ever-growing list not just because of one reason, but many. According to the Star-Telegram, Cornyn wasn’t just upset about Fast and Furious.
Cornyn has also rebuked Holder for refusing to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate leaked national security information, and he has fumed over the Justice Department’s block of the Texas voter ID law this year.
During his turn to speak at the committee hearing, Cornyn did not mince words.
“You still resist coming clean about what you knew and when you knew it with regard to Operation Fast and Furious,” Cornyn said. “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, by failing and refusing to perform the duties of your office.
“So, Mr. Attorney General, it’s more with sorrow than anger that I would say you leave me with no alternative but to join those who call upon you to resign your office.”
Eric Holder refuses to resign and says that he has the full support of President Obama. Holder also said that Cornyn’s complaints were, “almost breathtaking in its inaccuracy”.
