Articles of Impeachment Introduced to Oust Attorney General Holder

A small group of House Republicans plans to introduce articles of impeachment against Attorney General Eric Holder today.

Rep. Pete Olson first called on the House to begin impeachment proceedings against Holder back in August for lying to Congress and refusing to uphold existing laws:
During his tenure as Attorney General, Eric Holder has refused to prosecute IRS officials who admitted targeting Tea Party groups on ideological grounds, allowed a Border Patrol agent to be killed during Operation Fast and Furious, and named a member of the media as a co-conspirator in alleged violations of the Espionage Act while lying about it to Congress. 
The House voted to hold Mr. Holder in contempt of Congress last summer, before he committed perjury, and yet he continues to lie and thwart Congressional inquiries to provide the truth to the American people. The Attorney General has failed to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed and has failed to fulfill his oath of office. Since Holder won’t resign, he must be impeached. I urge my colleagues to join me in calling for impeachment proceedings as soon as we return to Washington.
On Wednesday, Olson, who drafted the articles, provided a statement to Reuters:
This was not a decision that I made lightly. Since the House voted in 2012 to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt, the pattern of disregard for the rule of law and refusal to be forthright has only continued.
An outline lists the four articles of impeachment:



1) Holder refused to cooperate in the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious, the botched gun-walking program that allowed guns to enter Mexico in an attempt to track them to cartel leaders. The program was approved at the highest levels of the Justice Department and provided thousands of illegally purchased guns to cartels. Two of the guns were found at the scene of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder in Arizona in December 2009. Holder refused to give a congressional committee subpoenaed documents about the Justice Department’s involvement, and he was found in contempt of Congress. The House oversight committee has also sued for the documents.

2) Holder has not upheld our nation’s laws, "undermining the authority and credibility of the Justice Department to the point that it can no longer be trusted by the American people to enforce the laws of the United States and uphold the U.S. Constitution."

3) Holder has failed to fulfill his oath of office by refusing to prosecute anyone involved in the IRS scandal, despite evidence that officials in Washington, D.C. were directing the illegal practice of targeting groups based on political affiliation.

4) Holder is believed to have committed perjury when he testified to Congress under oath about the DoJ investigation of Fox News correspondent James Rosen:
In May, Holder testified to the House Judiciary Committee that he was not involved in, and had not heard of, a potential prosecution of a journalist by the Justice Department. Three days later, the Justice Department released documents related to the Rosen investigation that named the reporter as a co-conspirator in alleged violations of the Espionage Act. Internal Justice Department regulations require the approval of the Attorney General to investigate a journalist. Mr. Holder undoubtedly knew about the ongoing investigation of Mr. Rosen because he was required to personally sign off on it. Mr. Holder refuses to say if he did, and has gagged the Justice Department from answering as well. (source)
It is not yet known if Speaker John Boehner or other House GOP leaders will act on the measure. Boehner’s office declined to comment and referred calls to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, whose panel would conduct any impeachment hearings against Holder.

Politico reports that Goodlatte did not say if he plans to move forward with the resolution, but he did say that Holder should resign for the good of the Justice Department:
Under Attorney General Holder’s watch, there has been a lack of leadership and a politicization of the Justice Department. Scandals from the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation to the seizure of reporters’ emails and phone records in national security leaks investigations have undermined the Department’s credibility and the American people’s trust. Attorney General Holder has also politicized the rule of law by refusing to enforce laws he doesn’t like. 
The only way to restore credibility at the Department of Justice is through an improvement in the quality of leadership. President Obama should make a change in the leadership of the Department of Justice to restore the confidence of the American people in our nation’s top law enforcement agency.

Our government has been infested by a criminal gang of heartless beings that only care about complete and utter domination and control and they use the "boiled frog" method to fry us all. Little by little they turn up the heat on us. One crooked bill, executive order, and false promise at a time. They hope and believe we are to dumb to notice we are being boiled alive. But - we are waking up and it is time to jump out of the cooking pot people. Jump for your lives!!! We need to exert our freewill and break the chains that tie us down. STAND UP!

This looks just like a PR stunt. Nothing will ever change until the Federal Reserve is abolished and the government actually represents the people. They are just using Holder as a fall guy, not to say he isnt a bad guy but this wont change anything.

f nothing other than forcing a vote on impeachment proceedings is accomplished the recorded votes of all of congress will thereafter forever reveal their either supporting or objecting to the audacity of those openly in breach of their oaths of office subject to Article 2, Sections 2 and 4 of the very document they swore to uphold.. Articles of impeachment on the house floor will put the entire house on well deserved trial. Could there possibly be a more reliable way to compose an effective list for a gallows? Accountability is in reach of congress while civil unrest is yet eminent due to the brazen actions perpetrated throughout both the executive and judicial branches supporting overreach gone wild in all federal agencies trampling individual liberty of those that pay the bills of the biggest employer in the US, the swelling government parasite.
But where is the accountability of the TV news media effected only by their advertising income based on a shrinking audience?

Like Anon 5:17 said, that basically, Congress's vote will reveal the traitors in government.

they should add to their article of impeachment the illegal arrest of World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes. AG Holder has no authority over that body and no standing to detain her.

Every time these carny swindlers attempt to even simulate an honest legal process or holding any moral position at all, they look like clowns.

Firstly I wish to open my comment by saying a few words recorded in the book of Matthew, chapter 23, verse 8. Jesus is talking to the people and He tells them/us, 'Call no man Master, not even the Messiah.'

I took those words literally a long time ago. Hence, over the years, I have always had a problem with 'authorities.' I have never accepted the idea that a government has any jurisdiction over me. I mean, after all, what is a government but a collection of people who put their pants on one leg at a time the same as me and many of them are stupid as a sack of hammers and couldn't use a hammer to pound in a twelve inch nail. So, my attitude always has been, why does everyone place so much trust in governments? Why do people think we even need governments; the like of which we have seen through the centuries? Governments are what history books tend to discuss; and what is history but one bloody thing after another. That has got to stop! Stop believing in governments.

As for the people of the Jewnighted States; you have my sympathies. Something was done to you that is so nefarious, so dark and evil; it basically came at you out of a red fog. Your good nature and trusting faith in your Constitution; a Masonic/Illuminati construct you believed protected you from criminals, like those who have taken over the reigns of power, has been proven to be not what you thought it was. Your recent presidents have shown you clearly what that Constitution is; a scrap of old paper with no modern relevance. You were hoodwinked. And now you have a situation, which if you heed my words can reverse this entire sorry situation. You see; I am a writer who offers alternatives and solutions, not just observations and complaints.

The question is this: is the Supreme Court of the United States of America supreme, or is the Office of the President the supreme arbiter of the law? In the present case it has been shown that: the president, Barrack Hussein Obama is a fraud. He is not a natural born American citizen. He has not produced his birth certificate. Hence, the office of the president is not legitimate. Since SCOTUS has not impeached this presidential fraud, it is not upholding the law of the land; ie: The Constitution; hence SCOTUS is not acting in a supreme capacity. Therefore, there is no one in charge any longer. Federal laws, which derive their jurisdiction from, either SCOTUS or the White House/Congress/Senate, do no longer apply because they who claim jurisdiction have none; they are in contempt of The Constitution and the people.

Mister Holder, as well as all the other traitors and criminals in the Federal government of the Jewnighted States have to be physically taken out of their offices and tried before a tribunal of the people. If they are found to be guilty of treason they have to be executed. There is no other way around this anymore. 'It is either we go out with ropes around our wrists or they go out with ropes around their necks.' (I have no idea who first said those words, but put them into quote marks because they are not mine. Wish they were because they are a very good little group of words which says a whole lot.) Let the revolution begin!

Wow!! Your statement says it all, Emmanuel Truthseeker. Take Holder and every other traitor/criminal in the Federal government of the Jewnighted States physically out of their offices and try them all before a tribunal of the people; and, if found guilty of treason, they must be executed. I agree 100%. There's no other way around this anymore. "It's either we go out with ropes around our wrists or they go out with ropes around their necks." Let's do it. Let the revolution begin.
