Eric Holder grilled tomorrow
Liberty Council | 2/1/12 | Matt Staver

Posted on 02/01/2012 4:38:05 PM PST by westmichman

Mathew Staver, Chairman Liberty Counsel Action

Attorney General Eric Holder is facing possible “Contempt of Congress” charges over his failure to disclose information concerning the now infamous Fast and Furious debacle! Tomorrow, Holder will appear before Representative Darrell Issa and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and I am expecting a firestorm of intense questioning.

Time is now of the essence! I am calling on my Liberty Counsel Action team to join in our powerful Fax Barrage demanding Eric Holder’s resignation, firing, or impeachment. Please, click here now to schedule your personalized faxes:

http://www.lcaction.cc/2659/offer.asp

stephen,

Eric Holder is about to step into a hornet’s nest. Chairman Darrell Issa and his GOP colleagues on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are demanding FULL disclosure over the role Holder and his Department of Justice (DOJ) cohorts played in the deadly Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.

“Fast and Furious” certainly does not describe the DOJ’s response to their congressional subpoenas!

In fact, Representative Issa is livid over the DOJ’s slowness and lack of response, deception, and potential cover-up activities during the investigation.

Yesterday, in a four page letter, Chairman Issa threatened to proceed with charging Eric Holder with “Contempt of Congress” if his DOJ fails to comply with congressional subpoenas for documentation regarding Fast and Furious by February 9th.

In the DOJ’s most recent disclosure, which took almost a year for Issa to obtain, e-mails seemed to indicate that Holder misled Congress about his knowledge of the death of Border Agent Brian Terry.

Chairman Issa recently declared that the Department of Justice “has blood on their hands” in the death of the Agent Terry and an untold number of Mexican citizens.

Issa has also labeled Holder a “hostile witness.”

Sadly, as I am sure you now know, Fast and Furious is just one instance of gross mismanagement that justifies our call for Eric Holder’s forced resignation, firing, or impeachment!

++24 hours left to let Congress know that Americans want Eric Holder to go!

Liberty Counsel Action launched a powerful Fax Barrage telling Chairman Issa and his committee that Americans are OUTRAGED over Holder’s deplorable performance as Attorney General. Thousands of these Faxes have already been delivered.

If Eric Holder refuses to resign as Attorney General, we are calling on Congress to impeach him, pass their “Vote of No Confidence” Resolution, and/or take any other action they think will pressure Holder’s resignation.

I am asking you to join with thousands of other Liberty Counsel Action team members in faxing a demand to key elected officials that Eric Holder be removed from office by whatever means Congress has in its power!

Click now here to order your faxes to Congress while they will get the greatest possible leverage just before the hearings begin:

http://www.lcaction.cc/2659/offer.asp

With your help, we will flood Congress with tens of thousands of faxes in a compressed period of time using our proven Liberty Counsel Action Fax Barrage strategy!

The faxes will be sent to your MI Representative and Senators, along with key members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. If you would like to dramatically increase your impact, options are available to include more members of the House OGRC and members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.

Click here to schedule your personalized faxes. Everything you need is one click away:

++Eric Holder is a national disgrace as Attorney General of the United States!

From the day Mr. Holder took his oath of office as Attorney General, his tenure can only be described as one scandalous dereliction of duty after another.

stephen, Eric Holder must go – and Liberty Counsel Action's Fax Barrage strategy is extremely effective at forcing Congress to see that the American people will not stand for the arrogant dismissal of public opinion!

Even if you have already done so, please consider another flight of faxes to Congress. Click here now to schedule your faxes, which will be delivered immediately:

http://www.lcaction.cc/2659/offer.asp

Thank you again for your faithful support.

God bless you, Mathew Staver, Chairman Liberty Counsel Action

P.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s actions at the DOJ are truly a travesty of justice. I want Chairman Issa and his committee members to know that they are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED by the American people to hold Eric Holder’s feet to the fire!

Please, join me in utilizing our powerful Fax Barrage to tell Congress that it’s time for Holder to go! Click here to greatly increase the pressure on Congress to remove Eric Holder from office:

I never said it was "just for show".

The Republicans need to grow some balls as it seems this bastard has lied to them, obstructed them and has pretty much gotten a pass, so far.

How many times has this SOB been "grilled"?Do you really expect tomorrow to be any different?

I am tired of the questions and it is time for the R's to S*** or get off the pot.

BTW, I like Issa, but am losing my patience with his effectiveness.

I think it's obvious that this is a racially motivated investigation.
If Eric Holder was white this would not be happening.

I think Issa is playing it close to the vest so that when this whole thing blows up it’ll be closer to the election, and Obama will be helpless to mitigate the damage.

Apparently no one around here got the memo.
Everyone in the Obammie administration has immunity.

Well let just see the sparks fly.
What really pisses Eric is the fact he knows he is answering to the next AG, not good Eric, not good.

And do what...

1) Demand formally that a special prosecutor be assigned.

2) vote on a resolution or make a recommendation to Congress that he be asked to resign.

3) Hold him in contempt of Congress.

They have been holding hearings for months now on this and nothing has come been resolved and it appears nothing will be.

I had to back it up twice and turn up the volume to hear it, as he was mumbling. I do recall seeing that before, but missed the mumbled words, but that does confirm what he said.

WH Insider: Pay attention. In a week or so. The hearing. That – we are reaching the-the moment of truth on Holder. What do we got now…almost 60 members – members of Congress calling for his resignation? And that’s just publicly. There are Democrats voicing the same uh…the same suggestion. I’ll say it to you again – you keep asking me about it, every time we talk so one more time for you…Eric Holder will no longer be Attorney General of the United States. That-that is – you’ll see that happen soon now. Very soon.

1) Demand formally that a special prosecutor be assigned.

That's a thought. That request has to be made to the President or the Attorney General.

2) vote on a resolution or make a recommendation to Congress that he be asked to resign.

I don't know if Issa or the Oversight Committee can do that. Do you?

3) Hold him in contempt of Congress.

Issa has said he would do that and set a deadline of Feb. 9th for Holder to turn over the requested documents. I guess we will all have to wait and see what happens between now and the 9th. Citing Holder for contempt may not mean a slamdunk conviction though...

——Following a contempt citation, the presiding officer of the chamber is instructed to refer the matter to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia;[9] according to the law it is the “duty” of the U.S. Attorney to refer the matter to a grand jury for action.-——

Here is the U.S. Attorney of the District of Columbia.


Ronald C. Machen Jr.

Ronald C. Machen Jr. was nominated to serve as United States Attorney for the District of Columbia by President Barack Obama on December 24, 2009. Mr. Machen’s appointment was confirmed by the United States Senate on February 11, 2010.

They have been holding hearings for months now on this and nothing has come been resolved and it appears nothing will be.

Between the time the Watergate story first broke and the first indictment was made was over a year and that was with the MSM baying for blood like a pack of rabid hounds. For comparison.
