The Relentless Conservative Headshot

Holder's Impeachment Imminent

Posted: Updated:

"Hillary Clinton, our junior senator from New York, announced that she has no intentions of ever, ever running for office of the President of the United States. Her husband, Bill Clinton, is bitterly disappointed. He is crushed. There go his dreams of becoming a two-impeachment family."
David Letterman (1947- )

Conservatives are all abuzz about the possibility Eric Holder, Obama's lead lawyer buddy, may be moving inexorably toward his own impeachment.

As a Conservative myself, I say let's get right down to it: impeach Holder and disbar him just like Bill Clinton was disbarred.

Clearly, Holder will 'fall on his on sword' rather than rat out his President. First he might try to 'resign,' or he'll be 'fired' by an indignant Obama.

This administration will do anything to avoid the impeachment of Holder but that is exactly what needs to happen to get to the bottom of this whole lethally incompetent scam by Obama's poorly selected team. If Holder is allowed to skate away without any further investigation, the American people will never know the depth of deceit involved in this quagmire.

An outside possibility, though unlikely is that Holder, like a junkie facing felony charges and a agonizing withdrawal, might 'flip' on his boss and implicate Obama. I certainly hope this happens.

Regardless, when the smoke clears on this "Operation Fast and Furious" mess (which resulted in the death of 2 Federal agents and over 200 Mexicans with US-supplied guns), Holder will look like a deer caught in the headlights.

Beginning with his Obama-backed attacks on the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution where Holder said he didn't believe Americans have the right to bear arms (see this USA Today poll) and his department's decision not to prosecute the New Black Panthers in the voter intimidation case, right on to the Khalid Sheik Mohammed/NYC Trial debacle, Holder has been one stumbling, bumbling Attorney General for the ages. "Operation Fast and Furious" just seals the deal that he should be run out of office and be stripped of his license to practice law for committing perjury, if that is proved.

Beyond possible perjury we may well be looking at charges of accessory to murder and a whole host of civil suits for stupidly and negligently putting those guns into the hands of foreign criminals who killed many people with them. One would hope that a President and his staff who were elected on a mantle of "Hope & Change" wouldn't reduce themselves or this country to that degenerate level.
