It is time for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to resign. As the top law enforcement and legal official, he should know and follow the U.S. Constitution.
There have been times when he and the president have asserted their will rather than follow due process.
Mr. Holder failed to comply fully to a House of Representatives committee subpoena for full disclosure of the Fast and Furious gun-walking experiment, which resulted in the death of Border Agent Brian Terry as well as other victims. Congress has voted to find him in contempt with members of both parties voting in support of the contempt charges.
Recently there were serious leaks of sensitive and classified information which is damaging to our security and to our intelligence methods and agents. An independent counsel should have been appointed to have a thorough investigation. Instead he named two political appointees who are close to the Obama administration.
Can we expect to find who is responsible for these leaks from Mr. Holder’s investigators? Unlikely!
The Justice Department at the direction of Eric Holder has filed suit against the states of Florida and Arizona for requiring voter identification to prevent voter fraud.
If he is worried about voting rights, why didn’t he bring charges against the Black Panthers who were threatening and intimidating voters in Philadelphia in the 2008 election?
Mr. Holder heads the Department of Justice. But justice is not being done. It is time for Eric Holder to resign and find someone more qualified and just to serve as attorney general.
