Turning Up The Heat: GOP Calls for Formal Investigation of AG Eric Holder

As usual, there was a juicy docu-dump on Friday. This one involved emails and memos to the DOJ’s AG Eric Holder regarding “Fast and Furious”, starkly contradicting the top cop’s previous testimony in front of a Congressional hearing where AG Eric Holder (head of the United States Department of Justice) denied knowing anything about the deadly gunwalking operation of the ATF.

I don’t know how many shoes there are to drop on this mega-mess, but one is dropping today, as there is now a call from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) to Obama to appoint a special counsel to investigate whether Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress. As of yesterday, Holder’s lame defense was that he doesn’t always read his emails/memos. Comforting, no?

For all my griping about the MSM malpractice with Obama and his administration, I must give extremely high ‘props’ and kudos to CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson for her continued professional digging, deeper and deeper, into this. She appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio show this morning and conveyed how she is being treated by the White House and DOJ in her investigation. Not nice, would be an understatement:

AoSH notes:

For a fun exercise, check out how many results a Google search for “Fast and Furious Holder” gets compared with “Occupy Wall Street” (I added “Holder” to the search since results show up for the assorted F&F movies otherwise).
