      Rep. Paul Gosar Renews Call For Immediate Resignation of Attorney General Holder

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS (R-AZ) introduced a Resolution of No Confidence in U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. The resolution states “that it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress has lost confidence in the Attorney General of the United States and thereby requests his immediate resignation.”

Rep. Gosar has garnered 48 co-sponsors before the resolution was filed in the 113th Congress. He introduced a similar resolution last year that had over 114 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives.

“I am very frustrated that it is even necessary for me to reintroduce this resolution. Attorney General Holder continues to evade his constitutional obligations to provide Congress and the American people answers for Operation Fast and Furious.”

“Regardless of the contempt charges which have already been passed by the House,” Rep. Gosar continued, “Mr. Holder must immediately resign his post so the President may appoint a new Attorney General – one who will hopefully restore confidence in our justice system.” 

Operation Fast and Furious allowed for thousands of weapons to cross the border from the United States and into the hands of Mexican cartels and other criminals. This operation directly violated U.S laws, Mexican laws, and international laws
