House Drafts Articles Of Impeachment Against Holder





Holder Not Your Father's DOJ SC

In response to numerous scandals that have plagued him during his service as attorney general, U.S. House Republicans Thursday presented articles of impeachment against Eric Holder. The Western Center for Journalism was at the forefront of this effort and is currently circulating a poll designed to gauge the public’s opinion on his proposed ouster.

Please take a moment to share your opinion by voting in this important poll.

Thankfully, several GOP representatives have been receptive to the growing number of calls to impeach Holder.

Rep. Pete Olson of Texas explained why he is on board with the impeachment effort, noting previous warnings have done nothing to curtail the Justice Department head’s criminal dereliction.

“Since the House voted in 2012 to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt,” he explained, “the pattern of disregard for the rule of law and refusal to be forthright has only continued.”

He said his decision came after significant thought, noting that he ultimately believes the “American people deserve answers” and if Holder “refuses to provide answers, then Congress must take action.”

Along with at least 10 other Republicans, Olson is floating a number of articles he hopes will eventually result in Holder’s impeachment. Among the charges included are his handling of the botched program known as Operation Fast and Furious.

The misguided move to arm Mexican gun traffickers with illegal firearms culminated with the shooting death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

Additional articles include Holder’s refusal to act in response to the Internal Revenue Services’ targeting of conservative groups and other contentious issues.

Impeachment is still a longshot, considering the responsibility of putting Holder on trial rests with the Democrat-led Senate. Nevertheless, the fact this issue is gaining traction among representatives is a positive sign for conservatives.

This corrupt administration has consistently found surreptitious ways to implement tyrannical policies. With just over three years left in his presidency, though, more and more Americans are beginning to see through such dishonest ploys.

A growing number of individuals are demanding accountability for the cover-ups and lies surrounding Obama and his Justice Department. For many, anything less than impeachment is unacceptable.

  1. I would say it's about time…however, it's possible they just rolled up a snowball and tossed it into a volcano. Now we have to sit back and see what chance it has. The odds are high that the democrats in the senate will not vote in favor of removing Holder. Or they could be thinking of their reelection chances and do it in hopes of boosting those chances. Morals are kind of like a pendulum with democrats. They'll stand behind a fellow democrat no matter how many crimes he's committed because, "He's one of us." Or they'll turn against him because he's making them look bad. This recent fumble with Obamacare might just be the fuel for the latter case, though. So, I'll look at this situation as a test phase. If they can successfully impeach Holder, guess who's next.

    I agree Fennec. The stale old joke comes to mind: Q: How do you eat an elephant? A: One forkful at a time. Go for impeachment on Holder. He deserves it. Get a feel for where the Democrats loyalties are at that particular moment. Then go for the rest of the elephant. It's nice to see the Republicans doing something at last. It's about time.

    Nothing would please me more then seeing that f–king muslim Eric Holder in an orange jumpsuit sitting with OJ Simpson in a cell.This black bastard is a disgrace to America and he went after states while selling guns to drug cartels or never stopping illegal aliens from sneaking into America.He is a useless piece of shit going after conservatives and tea party groups.

  4. After getting this albatross out maybe we might find enough republicans with enough cahoonas to go after the big boy Ovomit

    Nov 5/13: Holder told muslims not to cooperate with terrorist investigations for civil rights. THIS IS THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMEL’S BACK!!! Please sign both the articles petition AND this petition for Holder's Resignation & Prosecution 1,113,684 Letters and Emails Sent So Far!!! http://act.theteaparty.net/5273/prosecute-eric-ho… I AM PUTTING EVERYTHING IN THIS RESPONSE:
    What is the Mission Statement for the Department of Justice: To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; To ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; To provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; To seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and To ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans. Holder makes a mockery of this mission statement every day.
    The actions of Department of Justice (DOJ, the most thoroughly political and scrupulously biased Department in the nation’s history) under Holder are not just incompetent and slimy, they threaten the very rule of law in our nation. Congress make the laws, Holder was nominated to help enforce those laws. Rather than running his office as a servant to the American people with deep respect for the laws that he is supposed to enforce, holder runs the DOJ like the enforcement wing of a mafia organization. He acts as Obama’s personal attorney and hit man, doing whatever is necessary to protect him and ‘the family', even if it means unlawful acts. He doesn’t have a right to break the law; his job is to ensure rights of the people, not to strip them away. He is appointed to magnify the law against crime, he has instead repeatedly magnified crime against the law. America has seen a number of egregious and unlawful acts by the man who is supposed to serve as the main legal advisor to the United States government. Instead, holder uses his office as a weapon to push Obama’s radical, unconstitutional agenda and to punish those who disagree with Obama.
    We have witnessed a refusal to prosecute Wall Street executives for the fraud that destroyed the economy. Also a refusal to prosecute Black Panthers for voter intimidation. Also a refusal to protect voting integrity by fighting against a fair voter ID system. We have seen the loss of life, including Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, with the gun running operation Fast and Furious. We have heard Holder state that citizenship to illegals is a ‘civil right’. We have seen Holder protect the NSA. We have heard Holder committing perjury multiple times in front of Congress. We have seen Holder protect the outright bias of the IRS against conservative groups, which will never be corrected, thus giving strong support for disabolishing the entire $13 billion department with a fair tax that would only take 10 minutes to fill out. Holder, issued secret subpoenas to spy on members of the Press. 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. Because Holder has so egregiously violated the public trust, Obama should ask for his immediate resignation. If Obama does not, the message will be unmistakable: Obama believes he is above the Constitution and does not respect the role of a free press.”
    These most recent illegal acts by Holder’s DOJ is so incredibly tyrannical and unconstitutional that should be the final straw for his removal from office! It is OUR responsibility to uphold the laws of our republic and hold our public servants to their oaths of office to uphold and defend the Constitution. He is permitting the DOJ to trample on the First Amendment and he has 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.
