Ring of House Republicans to call for impeachment of Holder

Washington (CNN) – A group of 11 House Republicans will introduce a resolution Thursday calling for the impeachment of Eric Holder, saying the Attorney General has lost credibility and trust over a string of issues in recent years.

The articles of impeachment, drafted by Rep. Pete Olson of Texas, faults the Attorney General for refusing to comply with a congressional investigation of the botched gun-walking operation known as "Fast and Furious," led by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
