Eric Holder To Resign As Attorney General

Attorney General Eric Holder will announce his resignation today after almost six years, according to White House and Justice Dept. officials.

Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas states he’s quitting to avoid the IRS scandal because there is a possibility that the Republicans will control the House and the Senate, he will have nowhere to hide.

Holder To Resign To Avoid IRS Scandal

Of course Holder should have been impeached long ago for the Fast And Furious scandal or for the more recent unconstitutional “Operation Choke Hold,” which is an under-the-radar project by Holder and Obama to shut down businesses they didn’t like by cutting off their access to financing, like the gun industry.

“Holder knows the House is after him to produce his emails in the IRS scandal involving Lois Lerner, and he wants to get out now, in the possibility the Republicans control both the House and Senate after the November elections,” said Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, in an interview with WND.

Multiple sources are reporting Holder will step down as soon as a successor is confirmed, which means he could stay in office well into next year. One source reported the attorney general is “adamant” about leaving soon so that he doesn’t end up staying in the job during the remainder of President Obama’s second term.

According to a White House press pool report, President Obama has not decided on a successor.

Calling him the “stonewaller in chief of the Obama administration,” Stockman said “the pressure is building on Holder in Congress and Obama knows it.”

“Holder has been keeping the lid on the IRS scandal so far, but I think Congress is going to find out there has been collusion between Holder’s Justice Department and the way the IRS investigations of conservatives have been pursued,” he said.

Stockman signed on to a bill introduced by Rep. Pete Olsen, R-Texas, in November 2013 asking for Holder’s impeachment over the IRS and Fast and Furious scandals. It currently has 28 supporters, all Republicans, and includes eight other Texans.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., told WND Holder “will be remembered for his total disregard for the Constitution and the rule of law, which has become emblematic of the lawless Obama administration.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, noted in a statement that he has been calling for many years for Holder to resign.

“Not only has he lied before members of Congress and, ultimately, been held in contempt, he has obfuscated the truth and been the most partisan, partial, prejudiced and self-pitying attorney general in my lifetime, including John Mitchell, who went to jail for his crime.”

Gohmert charged Holder has “prosecuted more people for leaking, which sometimes is an effort at whistleblowing, than all other attorneys general added together.”

“He has not only failed to investigate crimes and potential crimes occurring in this administration, he has been the ‘cover-upper-in-chief’ and will be sorely missed by those in the administration like Lois Lerner who want to disobey the law and flaunt it,” Gohmert said.

Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., said in a statement Holder has “consistently demonstrated to the American people that the main task during his tenure has been to protect the White House and the White House agenda, more than pursue justice to the fullest extent.”

He said Obama should nominate someone who can restore American trust in the rule of law, noting Holder was held in contempt of Congress.

“Before the attorney general steps down, he should clear his desk of the documents and information he still owes Congress under subpoena,” Lankford said. “It is unacceptable for the nation’s highest law enforcement individual to stall and then resign without fulfilling his legal obligations to Congress.”
