After What This Congressmen Just Did, Eric Holder Could Finally Be Impeached!

Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar has aimed plenty of criticism at this administration. Most recently, he joined a growing chorus of Americans upset that Obama bypassed Congress – in violation of a law he himself signed – by unilaterally releasing five dangerous terrorists in exchange for suspected Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

In Gosar’s view, Attorney General Eric Holder bears a great deal of responsibility for the scandals that have rocked the White House since he assumed office in 2009.

“We’ve seen a wanton disrespect for the rule of law,” he asserted. “Very, very poor legal counsel is being given to the president by the attorney general.”

While not the first to suggest impeaching America’s first black attorney general, Gosar confirmed this week that he is dedicated to pursuing that option. He said he will decide this month whether he will join forces with legislators behind a similar bill introduced by Rep. Pete Olson or draft his own articles of impeachment.

He called the Obama administration the “most lawless” in American history, suggesting the corruption “starts at the top with Eric Holder,” who should be impeached for his failure to uphold and enforce the nation’s laws.

This is not Gosar’s first attempt to see Holder removed from his post at the head of the Justice Department. As controversy swelled regarding the attorney general’s handling of the Mexican gun-walking scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious, he mounted an effort to demand Holder’s resignation.

An overwhelming majority of the House joined the cause as all but two Republicans – and 17 Democrats – voted in 2012 to find Holder in contempt of Congress.

“My calls have been very, very successful in the Republican aspect and right now I’m working on the leadership in the House,” Gosar explained, noting legislators can actually advance articles of impeachment while calls for resignation are more symbolic.

“It’s a difficult move,” he conceded, “because it means we’re coming to the last vestages of how we deal with how we solve these problems; but when people look at the facts, we can’t keep doing this. We have to be a law-abiding country.”

In addition to Fast and Furious, Gosar has a number of other serious complaints about Holder’s job performance – including “illegal aliens who are being abandoned without resources” in violation of federal law.

    Here are a few of Holder’s articles of impeachment:
    1 We have witnessed a refusal to prosecute Wall Street executives for the fraud that destroyed the economy.
    2 Also a refusal to prosecute Black Panthers for voter intimidation.
    3 Also a refusal to protect voting integrity by fighting against a fair voter ID system and fair voter registration policies, to try and eliminate democratic voter fraud.
    4 We have seen the loss of life, including Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, with the gun running operation Fast and Furious. He is also trying to get rid of the 2nd Amendment by shackling law-abiding gun owners with expensive smart-gun bracelets that don’t work yet.
    5 We have seen Holder try to defend that restrictions on felons’ voting rights are wrong and immoral.
    6 We have heard Holder state that “black students were disciplined more harshly and more frequently because of their race than similarly situated white students.”;
    7 Holder states that “muslims should not be profiled and should not cooperate with terrorist FBI investigations because of their civil rights”;
    8 and he states that “citizenship to illegals is a ‘civil right’”.
    9 We have seen Holder protect the NSA.
    10 We have heard Holder committing perjury multiple times in front of Congress.
    11 We have seen Holder protect the outright bias of the IRS against conservative groups and NOW denying a special prosecutor and instead using an investigator who is a partisan donor to Obama and Democratic causes, and saying that there is no conflict of interest. This shows that "the federal government has no interest in investigating the truth and to find out exactly what happened with any of obama’s scandals." The IRS Attorney General bias will never be corrected, thus giving strong support for either not paying your taxes or abolishing the entire $13 billion department with a fair/flat tax.
    12 Holder, issued secret subpoenas to spy on members of the Press, and also wants to monitor newsrooms like a german nazi.
    13 Holder will not do anything with Lerner’s contempt of Congress
    14 Holder is telling public schools that they must provide all children with an education regardless of their immigration status. But Holder is attacking successful Charter Schools and vouchers to them while pushing public indoctrination schools.
    15 The Supreme Court ruling on the NSA violating the 4th Amendment was turned down since holder had his judge dismiss Rand Paul’s case on false grounds, so holder eliminated the 4th Amendment.
    16 Holder is telling state attorneys’ general to ignore laws passed by their legislators.
    There are many others…
    We realize that contempt is not a big deal to holder. He’s still doing what he was put in the INJustice Department to do: conceal documents, refuse to investigate Obama scandals, and provide political fodder for the Democrats’ agenda. This is the closest thing to the Gestapo America has ever had. The First Amendment doesn’t request the fed to respect it; it demands it, and thus he has trampled on the First Amendment and failed in his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. The very rule of law is at stake and the credibility of every law enforcement officer in the U.S. If our top law enforcement agency refuses to follow the law, there is no rule of law, and this is no longer America.
