In his first interview since Thursday’s vote, Holder said lawmakers have used an investigation of a botched gun-tracking operation as a way to seek retribution against the Justice Department for its policies on a host of issues, including immigration, voting rights and gay marriage. He said the chairman of the committee leading the inquiry, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), is engaging in political theater as the Justice Department tries to focus on public safety.
This is an incredible thing to say. Eric Holder put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels and now he's worried about public safety?
One border patrol agent is dead. One ICE agent is dead. Hundreds of Mexican citizens are dead because of this operation. And now Holder is suddenly worried about the "focus on public safety"? Doesn't it seem that a conscientious AG would want to get to the bottom of this instead of stonewalling?
The only thing this investigation has to do with Barack Obama is what he knew, when he knew it, and what's in those documents he claimed Executive Privilege over.
It is well past time for Holder to resign.
