    House Republicans introduce resolution to impeach Attorney General Holder[W:65]

    A group of congressional Republicans introduced a resolution Thursday to call for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder, alleging Holder had committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” during his tenure as head of the Justice Department.The resolution was introduced by Rep. Pete Olson, R-Texas, who claims Holder has committed “the offenses of lying to Congress, refusing to comply with a subpoena, and failing to fulfill his oath of office.”
    Olson cites Holder’s unwillingness to cooperate during the investigation into the botched Operation “Fast and Furious, his refusal to prosecute those involved IRS targeting of conservative groups, his failure to enforce laws including the Defense of Marriage Act, and his “false testimony” about the DOJ’s monitoring of Fox News journalist James Rosen as articles that are grounds for impeachment.
    “For nearly five years, Attorney General Holder has systematically deceived Congress and destroyed the credibility of the Justice Department in the eyes of the American people,” Olson said in a statement.
    Olson was joined by 19 other Republican representatives in the resolution.

    Don't know how far they will get with this, but I gotta say, it's about time someone started going after this corrupt administration.

    I too think it will fizzle. But it never hurts in the long run to try and do what is right and best for America.

    Holder should be in prison.

    The Democrat controlled Senate isn't going to take down one of their own, truth and morality be damned.

    Ain't gonna happen. All of DC doesn't have the character and integrity to really go up against a president whose approval ratings have been as good as O's have been. The American public wouldn't get behind it as a whole, and without public support, I expect this to just be a symbolic move.

    I don't hear Republicans praising Unitary Executive Theory as much as they used to now that a Democrat is in the White House.

    Are you paying attention lately?

    "In the first week of November in the fifth year of their presidencies, Obama and Bush have nearly identical approval numbers, according to the latest Gallup polling.

    In fact, Bush comes out one point ahead, 40 percent to 39 percent, respectively.

    The Gallup daily tracking poll for November 5th 2013 puts Obama’s approval at 39 percent, with 53 percent disapproving of his job performance.

    By comparison, polling for the first week of November in 2005 had Bush’s approval at 40 percent, with 55 percent disapproving of his job performance."

    Five years in, Obama and Bush poll numbers nearly identical

    Obama's rating is actually worse than Bush's at this point.

    Oh, what war is he invoking this for?

    The war against his own people?

    It's unfortunate that the only way he gets called on lying to Congress is with a Congressional vote. It's a crime. Why isn't he simply prosecuted for it? If I lie to the FBI, I'm prosecuted. It doesn't take an act of Congress. It's a flaw, in my opinion.

    Yes, I realize that, but there is no denying that his popularity has been sustained in spite of various issues over the time of his presidency. There are other factors which feed into my thoughts that nothing will be done, and I will be completely shocked if anything ever comes of it.
