Texas Senator John Cornyn called for Eric Holder’s resignation on Tuesday, obviously prompted from a security leak investigation and the blunderous Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal.
Cornyn’s profession was also largely spurred by Holder’s decision to deploy two lawyers from within the Justice Department to administer the leak probe. This guy has scandal written all over his body. He’s a walking malefactor who has been pinned with an explicit, Watergate-esque brand of corruption.
Yet, he still holds a job as the nation’s Attorney General, and he has “no intention of resigning.”
“I would say that you leave me no alternative but to join those that call upon you to resign your office,” Cornyn averred. “Americans deserve an attorney general that will be honest with them, they deserve an attorney general who will uphold the basic standards of political independence and accountability. You’ve proven time and time again, sadly, that you’re unwilling to do so.”
In response, Holder accused Cornyn of “breathtaking” inaccuracies, and then, of course, slammed Republicans for, well, being Republicans.
The nature of these s0-called “breathtaking” inaccuracies are unclear.
Cornyn later added the following, in addressing the Attorney General: “The leaking of classified information represents a major threat to national security, and your office faces a clear conflict of interest, yet you will not appoint a special counsel… Meanwhile, you still resist coming clean about what you knew and when you knew it with regard to Operation Fast and Furious. You won’t cooperate with the legitimate Congressional investigation, and you won’t hold anyone – including yourself – accountable.”
Of course, the leak probe and Fast and Furious scandal are only two of Holder’s countless indiscretions.
