Operation Fast and Furious Scandal
For over a year now, U.S. Attorney General Holder and Department of Justice officials have been stonewalling, misleading and in some cases outright lying to Congress over the "Fast and Furious" scandal.
Last week, I voted to ensure that taxpayer money cannot be used to obstruct this critical Congressional investigation any further. (Roll Call Vote #226)
It's entirely unacceptable for the Attorney General, our top law enforcement official, to ignore a Congressional subpoena to turn over all documents related to Fast and Furious - documents that could likely uncover the truth about what happened and who is responsible. This is the arrogance of the Obama Administration on full display.
At least 300 deaths have been linked to Operation Fast and Furious in the United States and Mexico -- including U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry -- yet not a single high-ranking official has been punished or held accountable in any way.
I was one of the first members of Congress to call for Attorney General Holder's resignation over his disgraceful lack of leadership in allowing this to happen on his watch. Today I want to reiterate my calls for him to resign or be fired immediately and to let you know I will not stand down until the American people get the answers they deserve.
