The Daily Caller reports that Boehner and Cantor press secretaries “balked when asked if their bosses believe Attorney General Eric Holder should resign over Operation Fast and Furious.”
This despite the fact that more than 100 members of the House and every GOP presidential candidate have called for either a “no confidence” vote on Holder or for his removal.
With Holder scheduled to appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in just 10 days (February 2) to answer questions about the Department of Justice’s role in the botched “Fast and Furious” gun scandal, the weak position of these two GOP leaders is crucial.

+ + WHY HOLDER MUST GO…
As we noted last week, Holder now apparently considers himself above the law. Not only has he refused to take any responsibility or even publicly apologize to the family of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry, Holder’s Department of Justice has already informed the Committee it will not deliver subpoenaed documents relating to the botched gun-walking scandal as requested.
As a result, there is a buzz on Capitol Hill that Congress may move forward with contempt of Congress proceedings if Holder fails to produce requested documents -- documents the DOJ has already thumbed their collective noses at.
Now, we have word that Boehner and Cantor -- the two key GOP leaders in the House -- are dragging their feet on joining the call for Holder’s resignation.
Please take a moment right now to schedule your faxes to Boehner and Cantor -- as well as other key members of the House -- by going here:
Thank you for your vigilance!
