Holder to GOP critic: 'Have you no shame?'

Washington (CNN) –GOP critics cranked up the political heat Thursday on Attorney General Eric Holder, threatening impeachment and accusing him of withholding information from Congress about Operation Fast and Furious, a severely flawed and discredited federal gun-sting program.

At the end of a long, combative day of testimony before the Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee, California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa compared Holder to disgraced Nixon-era Attorney General John Mitchell.

    Republicans would love nothing better than to enact some revenge by forcing the resignation of a top Democratic official like the Democrats have forced top Republicans to do. For the record, over the past 40 years Republicans have been forced to resign from the top three political positions in the land; President, Vice-President, and Speaker of the House.

    Do not step down Mr. Holder. You've done nothing to merit your resignation. Let your accusers stew in their own conveniently applied "righteousness",they'll be distracted by another Obama appointee soon enough.
    Their goal is not only to get rid of Obama but also his entire cabinet and all of his appointees while he is still serving as POTUS.
    Go kick rocks in the desert.

    Holder is either guilty or incompetent. In either case, he is unfit to continue as Attorney General! Nuff said!!

    The AG is stunningly incompetent, blatantly dishonest or both. He should do the right thing and resign to preserve whatever reputation his office has left, but I sincerely doubt he will

    This attorney general needs to resign.

    The people do not believe his story, and there are other things going on in DOJ, that are VERY inappropriate, as well.
