This is a personal joy for me as Congresswoman Bachmann is a personal friend and first term Congressman Gosar is a 2010 Liberty Lister. (We are the keeper of the Liberty List here at The Patriot’s Trumpet.)
Congresswoman Bachmann brought the co-sponsors to 100 for Gosar’s Resolution of No Confidence in U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder (H.Res. 490).
“Today I joined 99 of my colleagues in publicly proclaiming that we have lost all confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder, through my co-sponsorship of House Resolution 490,” Bachmann said in a statement.
“I thank Congressman Gosar for leading the effort to expose the Attorney General’s failed leadership in his post. I have long believed that Attorney General Holder is inadequate for his position. I actually called on him to resign in 2010 because of his missteps on Wikileaks and the handling of the underwear bomber. Operation Fast and Furious is the latest failure by Attorney General Holder, and I believe our nation deserves better,” she concluded.
According to the Daily Caller, Attorney General Holder has withheld about 74,000 pages of lawfully subpoenaed documents and information from Congress related to the Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking program, providing Issa’s committee with only about 6,000 pages of documents. Read more here.
