Speaker Boehner,

Have you had enough of Eric Holder yet? Have you?

I know I have and I also know I’m not alone.

Listening to Holder feign amnesia in one congressional hearing after another is nauseating. He’s done it 8 times now and I have had quite enough.

The committees have subpoenaed some 80,000 documents, emails and memos from Eric Holder and he has turned over only 7,600 of them.

Holder himself yesterday admitted to having 140,000 such documents but upon questioning from Congressman Issa as to how many subpoenaed documents he has YET to turn over, Holder would only say that he has turned over 7,600.

Speaker Boehner, in not answering questions, in stonewalling, in lying, in claiming he does not recall dates, conversation or reading documents, in claiming he has no idea who knew what, when they knew it or who if anybody they told, Eric Holder is clearly showing contempt for the congressional committees.

We all watched and listened to the sound bites from yesterday’s hearing. We all heard time and time again…”I don’t know,” “I don’t recall,” I was not aware,” and on and on and on.

We heard the contentious back and forth with Congressman Issa and we listened while Holder refused to answer question. We heard it and I suspect, you did as well.

All of that was rehashed non answers of questions asked and not answered by Holder in 7 previous hearings but there was something new. Something startling. Something which did not get much notice yesterday, but I want to bring it to your attention today.

This was the give and take between Eric Holder and Congressman Jason Chaffetz.

In this, you will hear, point blank and no question about it, Eric Holder PERJURE himself before the congressional committee.

PERJURY, Mr. Speaker.

Watch and listen.

From an email dated Oct 17th, 2010, from Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein to James Trusty:

“Do you think we should have Lanny participate in press when Fast and Furious and Laura’s Tucson case [Wide Receiver] are unsealed? It’s a tricky case, given the number of guns that have walked, but it is a significant set of prosecutions.”

Then on Oct. 18th, 2010, from Trusty back to Weinstein:

“I think so, but the timing will be tricky, too. Looks like we’ll be able to unseal the Tucson case sooner than the Fast and Furious (although this may be just the difference between Nov. and Dec).”

“It’s not clear how much we’re involved in the main F and F [Fast and Furious] case,” reads the email, “but we have Tucson [Wide Receiver] and now a new unrelated case with [redacted] targets. It’s not any big surprise that a bunch of US guns are being used in MX [Mexico], so I’m not sure how much grief we get for ‘guns walking.’ It may be more like ‘Finally, they’re going after people who sent guns down there.’”

Mr. Speaker, with the words being read aloud to him by Congressman Chaffetz, Eric Holder stood his ground and told Congressman Chaffetz that those emails DID NOT REFER TO FAST AND FURIOUS.

Mr. Speaker…clearly…Eric Holder is lying and THAT, sir, is perjury.

For Eric Holder to insist, over and over again, that these emails do not refer to Fast and Furious when he is told over and over again by Congressman Chaffetz that they clearly do because they indeed mention Fast and Furious by name is both showing contempt for the Congressional Committee and committing perjury.

No more delays, Mr. Speaker. No more waiting. No more chances, Mr. Speaker.

I call on you to bring charges of contempt and perjury against Eric Holder NOW.

You, sir, have allowed Eric Holder more than a year to comply, and it is obvious to the world that he has no intention of doing so; and to allow this travesty to continue is, in and of itself, a travesty and any who would allow the continuation of it are themselves guilty of aiding and abetting the contempt, the perjury and the travesty.

Not for one more day Mr. Speaker, should the Attorney General, the head of the Department of Justice, be allowed to obstruct justice!

Have you had enough of Eric Holder yet? Have you?

I know I have and I also know I’m not alone.

  1. I am very tired of hearing “Eric Holder should step down” WHAT!
    Apparently that is punishment for the elite. This Country is not supposed to have special priveleges for the “elite”. If any “average” American had causes the death of US law enforcement officers by illegal gun running to drug cartels they would be in prison. It is very tiring as an American to watch Republicans cover for Democrats because they don’t want to “rock the boat”. That is why our country is having the currently difficulties. It is time to uphold the Constitution everyone so casually promises to uphold. What is the value of a “solemn oath”” that is never upheld ?

  2. If each of these comments were put in email it might get his attention. Get everyone you know to email Boehner that they are not satisfied with his handling od DOJ and Fast and Furious. Be courteous but let him know you are aware of this travesty of justice.

  3. Tried to contact “cry-baby” Boehner and the site is under maintanence right now! Yea, I bet! He just doesn’t want to hear anything about it from the American people! He’s too scared to do anything about it. Good luck!

  4. Mr.Speaker, Do something now to deal with Mr. Holder. This has gone on long enough and you are there to do a job, not talk us to death and do nothing. We watch you live large and accomplish nothing. If you are not willing or able to fulfill your job then step aside and allow someone who cares about this country to do it for you. This man has made everyone look like morons, he is allowed to lie and deceive and he has no recall..I mean seriously how can a man who cannot remember a date or a name or a time or a place for example run an office or find his underware? Let alone work for the President of the United States. He seems totally incompetent at best…Mr. Speaker so how does he keep his job in the first place? With all due respect sir, please deal with Mr. Holder, this joker has wasted to much time and money and we need it resolved. Thank you, Debby Bradley

  5. Speaker Boehner,
    We are DISGUSTED by AG HOLDER’S refusal to realease any of the ENTIRE 22 sections OF DOCUMENTS requested by Rep.Issa. What the BLEEP-BLEEP ING-BLEEP IS GOING ON IN THE HOUSE? We SENT NEW BLOOD 2 SHAKE THINGS UP, TO NOT FEAR HOW THEIR ACTION PROTECTING THE CONSTITUTION or AMERICAN CITIZENS, would affect their CAREERS- WE WANT HOLDER TO BE INVESTIGATED, WE WANT TO KNOW HOW HIGH UP THIS SCANDAL GOES. We WANT TO KNOW WHY 2 FEDERAL AGENTS as well as HUNDREDS of MEXICAN CITIZENS had to be MURDERED before this SCANDAL TO STEaL AWAY OUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS became PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE. WHY DID the criminals in the DEPARTMENT of INJUSTICE allow HOLDER to LITERALLY GET AWAY with MURDER?-WE ARE BOILING OVER ANGRY that REP.CUMMINGS and other RETARDED DEMOCRATS are COVERING UP FOR THESE THUGS from CHICAGO that have USURPED CONSTITUTIONAL&CONGRESSIONAL POWER and MEMBERS of both the HOUSE and SeNATE are ROLLING OVER and TAKING IT. WHERE ARE THE HEROES LIke SHERIFF JOE, FEDERAL JUDGE LEE and REP.ISSA? They are NOT BEING BULLIED BY THE COMMIES. CONGRESS STOP KISSING OBAMa’s A$$ he is a THIEF,LIAR, ASSASSINATING,KILL LIST, DRONE ATTACKING MURDERING FREAK FROM KENYA,we don’t TRUST HIM& we DO NOT WANT HIM TRASHING UP DC. We read WIKI LEAKS -DIRTY DNC MEMBERS STUFFED THE BALLOTS IN OH.,PA,N.Y.&N.J., they were caught& NO ONE STOPPED THEM…….GOD PLEASE SAVE AMERICA.

  6. Mr. Speaker, you were voted in and given all the confidence in the world from the hearts of the American people. You have not done what you have promised. With regard to Eric Holder, he is a traitor and a criminal. GET HIM OUT OF OFFICE or we will get YOU and YOUR ILK out of office at the first opportunity!

  7. This is plain ridiculous, this is what is running our country ????????? To plainly keep insisting that its not true when the facts are right there in black and white is pretty pathetic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its like he saying ” so what you cant touch me with a ten foot pole” !!!!!!!!!!! Makes me want to throw up with what this government has gotten away with !!!!!!!!!!! God help us !!!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless the USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Mr Speaker, So far you have been practically worthless. You are SUPPOSED TO BE UPHOLDING THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES as the number ONE priority of your job!! WHAT DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND ABOUT THIS OBLIGATION????!!!! You need to START ACTING ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE WHO SENT YOU TO CONGRESS! And, you need to start doing that NOW!!! You have really been a huge disappointment to me, and I am sure, to many others—you are just like ALL THE OTHER SELF-SERVING parasites in Congress. The American people would be better off ( with the exception of a VERY FEW!) if you ALL were sent home and we started off “fresh” with NORMAL CITIZENS WITH INTEGRITY, CHARACTER AND SOME BRAINS!!! I , for one, an totally disgusted with your lack of action in this and other matters !! Go Home!!!

  9. “Everybody talks about the weather but no one does anything about it” I’ve tweeted, emailed, replied, cussed, swore— what good has it done, the band plays on and every one keeps dancing. Where is a leader that will come forward to to organise a protest to demand Boehner SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT. There are millions? that would join in such an effort. Who will lead the charge?

  10. Mr. Boehner
    Now is the time to address Holder in these charges. Waiting until Nov Elections is not an excuse. Regardless, you need to uphold the US Constitution of America. This has been too long stonewalling so hopefully this election ends and they are off the hook. Well if you expect us to support you. You Mr. Boehner need to stand up and do your job.

  11. Do not confuse “lying” and “denying the obvious”.
    The intent of “lying” is to deceive.
    The intent of “denying the obvious” is to make it known that the truth will be suppressed by whatever means.
    This is Communist behavior, only made possible by the RepuGnicans’ complicity with the Usurpation.

  12. Mr. Speaker:
    When are we going to start to INSIST that all members of government, whether you have a (D) or a (R) at the end of your name, begin doing what is right? I’m sick and tired of BOTH parties playing footsie with each other under the Congressional table.

    Mr. Speaker, it’s time for you to quit your damn crying, put your “big boy” tightie whities on and act like a man instead of a cry baby. You were put in Washington, DC to do your job – not work against the people.

    You’re quickly going to go down as one of the worst Speakers of the House if you don’t start to speak up for the American people, damnit.
