Add Marco Rubio’s name to the list asking Attorney Eric Holder to resign.
As the pressure mounts following Barack Obama’s evoking of executive privilege in the ‘Fast & Furious” scandal, the obstruction continues, the House Oversight Committee recommends Eric Holder for ‘Contempt of Congress’ … Florida US Senator Marco Rubio calls for Eric Holder to resign.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told The Daily Caller on Thursday that it’s time for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over the Fast and Furious scandal.
During a breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor on Thursday, Rubio responded “yes” when asked if he agrees with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the five other U.S. Senators who have called for Holder’s resignation.
“I think we’re at the point of no return,” Rubio said.
A House committee voted on Wednesday to hold Holder in contempt for not turning over documents related to the program after the White House exerted executive privilege.
“I think evoking executive privilege at the 11th hour yesterday was probably the last straw…I don’t know how the attorney general can continue to exercise that office with any level of credibility after the decision that was made yesterday,” Rubio said.
Just how long can Holder hand on and drag down Barack Obama any further in an election season? Democrats claim that this is a GOP witch hunt. No, the requests for Fast and Furious docs have been going on for quite some time. The fact that all of this is exploding prior to an election is just poor timing on the part of Obama’s minions. Who dragged this out? That would be Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder.
