Lummis calls for A.G. Eric Holder’s resignation
by .S. Representative Cynthia Lummis media release
November 15, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today (Tuesday, November 15, 2011), U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) called on Attorney General Eric Holder to step down over his handling of Operation Fast and Furious, a Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE)-led gun-walking surveillance operation that facilitated at least 1,500 illicit transfers of firearms. The firearms have been linked to crime scenes on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border and have been associated with the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent. Lummis released the following statement:

"Our nation’s top law officer, Attorney General Eric Holder, continues to stonewall and refuse to cooperate in a Congressional investigation regarding his agency’s illegal gun-trafficking operation that put Americans and innocent Mexicans in harm’s way, and is now linked to the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Eric Holder’s failed leadership of the Department of Justice is a danger to Americans and a threat to those protecting our borders.

"Americans deserve the utmost level of integrity from the Department responsible for enforcement of the law and the administration of justice. Eric Holder should be living the standard the agency he oversees demands of all Americans; it is clear he is not. Eric Holder must be held accountable and should step down immediately."
