Congressman: We're Going to Try to Impeach Eric Holder over Fast & Furious

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) told local supporters at a town hall in his northern Florida district Tuesday night that he and other Republicans are currently drafting a resolution seeking impeachment for Attorney General Eric Holder.

"It's to get him out of office—impeachment," Yoho said of the forthcoming resolution, according to the Ocala Star-Banner newspaper, adding, "it will probably be when we get back in (Washington). It will be before the end of the year. This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not.”

The local newspaper noted that Yoho and other House Republicans are planning to approach House Speaker John Boehner with the plan shortly.

Yoho’s chief of staff Kat Cammack alluded in a comment to the local paper that the resolution will likely have a focus on Operation Fast and Furious. “Obviously there is a lot frustration with our attorney general,” Cammack said. “You can name the botched programs. Fast and Furious has been one of the No. 1 complaints we get in our office and why no one has been held accountable.”

While several people have retired from the Department of Justice or have been reassigned, not one official from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) or Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) has been fired.

In Operation Fast and Furious, ATF agents allowed—at the direction of their supervisors—several “straw purchasers” to buy guns in the U.S. then traffic them into Mexico. The practice is called letting guns “walk.” It is frowned upon in the law enforcement community because the weapons could be used in crimes, and in Fast and Furious, they were.

As a result of the program, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and about 300 Mexican citizens have been murdered with the weapons President Barack Obama’s administration allowed to “walk” into cartel hands.

After Terry’s murder, Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) launched an investigation into the matter. The DOJ has not cooperated with the investigation now years later, withholding documents from the committee, resulting in bipartisan House votes to hold Holder in both criminal and civil contempt of Congress. President Obama has asserted executive privilege over the documents, too, and the civil contempt resolution has spawned a lawsuit Issa’s committee is leading against the administration to fight for the release of the documents.

The Obama administration has also reportedly been holding up the publication of Fast and Furious whistleblower ATF Special Agent John Dodson’s book on the details of the scandal. Left-wing activists have also recently tried to use Fast and Furious to reignite Obama's thus-far failed second-term push for further gun control.

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Quote:On Wednesday, Florida Congressman Ted Yoho spoke candidly with TPNN’s The Voice of Reason, Tim Constantine.

As President Obama, seemingly, walks between the rain drops without having to deal with the consequences of the numerous scandals that are piling up on his doorstep, Rep. Yoho noted that Attorney General Eric Holder, the Justice Department’s chief law enforcer, has been held in contempt of Congress and should be impeached.

Speaking of a mounting movement in Congress amongst conservatives to consider impeachment of Holder, Rep. Yoho explained,
