Daily Caller Calls it for Holder

Looks like they think his days are numbered, as the number of members of Congress calling for his resignation is growing quickly:

Attorney General Eric Holder’s tenure in the Obama administration may be coming to an end. At least eight members of Congress have now called on Holder to resign over the growing Operation Fast and Furious scandal.

I would tend to doubt the Attorney General will go gently. The media, for the most part, hasn’t been paying much attention to the scandal. Pretty much Fox News and CBS News are the only two outfits that have covered it any depth. Holder’s resignation would be something the rest of the media would have to report, and they’d also have to report why. His resignation would be an admission of guilt as well, which makes it harder for the Administration to claim this is nothing but a partisan witch hunt.

On the other side of the coin, if Holder was the only cabinet official at fault here, his resignation could dispose of the issue for the Administration, whereas Holder continuing could drag the scandal into election season; probably something that team Obama is not going to be too keen on. So I could see it go either way, but if I had to bet, I don’t think Holder will go gently.

  1. This is amazing!
    An operation occurring in many states, involving at least three departments of the Justice department and the Justice department itself. Thousands of firearms, dozens of transactions, over 200 Mexicans murdered, Federal law enforcement agents murdered and NO-ONE KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT IT!
    “No recollection, I never heard about it, The dog ate that page of the memo, I learned about it from the news”,
    That sewer of washington is so full of two bit liars, scoundrels, sleazy slippery lawyers that I’m surprised that the EPA doesn’t declare it a toxic waste zone.

  2. Reagan survived Iran-Contra, as did Bush the Elder. But it took Col. North falling on his sword, IIRC. Will Holder take the honorable way out?
