Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the announcement by Attorney General Eric Holder that he would step down from his position at the Department of Justice once a replacement is confirmed by the Senate:
“Over the past 6 years this Department of Justice has been defined by its failures and complete disregard for accountability. From the death of Brian Terry in the Fast and Furious gun running operation, to spying on journalist James Rosen, to tapping the phone records of the Associated Press, and most recently the unconstitutional Bergdahl prisoner exchange as well as the IRS scandal, there is no question that Eric Holder leaves behind a legacy of lawlessness, incompetence and hyper partisanship.
“I have been relentless in my pursuit to hold Eric Holder accountable for his actions and will not rest until the door officially hits him on his way out. The American people and U.S. Senate must ensure his replacement is a strict constitutionalist and not a partisan hack. Moving forward, our challenge begins now with rebuilding the trust of the American people and a return to fully upholding the laws of our country.”
Congressman Gosar was the first member of Congress to call for the resignation of Eric Holder. A Daily Caller article documenting the Congressman’s actions can be found HERE.
Most recently, on January 18, 2013, Congressman Gosar introduced H.RES.35 calling for the resignation of the Attorney General. His resolution currently has 142 cosponsors. He also introduced similar legislation in the 112th Congress.
