Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) is calling for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to resign from office immediately, charging that Holder lied to Congress under oath during his testimony over the “Fast and Furious” operation.
“Eric Holder has a glaring problem with telling the truth,” Broun said in a statement.
Broun added that scandal was the latest misstep in Holder’s career, arguing “some of the worst blunders in our judicial system’s history can be traced directly back to him.”
Broun also listed the role Holder played in the Clinton-era pardoning of fugitive Marc Rich, his refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act and attempting to try 9/11 terrorists in civil courts.
Over two dozen members of Congress have thus far called for Holder’s resignation.
