A group of House Republicans has decided to formally introduce articles of impeachment against Attorney General Eric Holder today. Tired of being stonewalled, several GOP congressmen have drafted articles of impeachment over a number of controversies related to the Department of Justice – including Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, and general inconsistencies in the enforcement of laws.
“Oh, boy,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “We've got some anarchists in the House. Fed up house Republicans – I'm sure they are these anarchists; they don't like government at all – they are fed up, and they're tired of being stonewalled by Attorney General Eric Holder.”
Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas) told CQ Roll Call that he plans to formally introduce the charges on Thursday. Further, Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) confirmed the impeachment effort to TheBlaze TV in an interview on Wilkow! Wednesday night.
Olson has reportedly gained the support of at least 10 other Republicans in co-sponsoring the articles of impeachment. They include: Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.); Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Tenn.); Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.); Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.); Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas); Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas); Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas); Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas); Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
While they are certainly many conservatives on this list, Glenn questioned why more people haven’t stepped up to support the effort given Holder’s history.
“Where are our other friends,” Glenn asked. “Where is Chris Stewart's [R-UT] name on this? Where Jason Chaffetz [R-UT] on this? I mean I know everybody has their own thing that they're doing, but I mean aren't we all clear on Eric Holder? Aren't we all clear on what he's done? And who he is? And what he's lied [about]?”
“Been clear for a long time,” Pat agreed.
“For a very long time,” Glenn concluded. “And he just gets away with it.”
