Louie Gohmert: Lois Lerner Will Miss Eric Holder
Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) weighed in on departing Attorney General Eric Holder today.
Gohmert was not a fan of the controversial Attorney General.
In April Rep. Louie Gohmert went at Attorney General Eric Holder over his flagrant disregard for contempt charges against him for his Fast and Furious program.
“I don’t need lectures from you about contempt!”
The Daily Caller reported:
Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert said that Lois Lerner will miss departing-Attorney General Eric Holder’s presence in the Department of Justice.
Holder, who announced his resignation as attorney general Thursday, has been overseeing a federal criminal investigation into the IRS scandal that has been accused of protecting the key Obama administration officials involved.
“For many years now, I have been calling for Attorney General Holder’s resignation,” Gohmert said in a statement. “Not only has he lied before members of Congress and, ultimately, been held in contempt, he has obfuscated the truth and been the most partisan, partial, prejudiced, and self-pitying attorney general in my lifetime, including [Nixon Attorney General] John Mitchell who went to jail for his crime.”
“As a former judge who has questioned Holder numerous times before the House Judiciary Committee, it is frustrating to seek the truth and receive dishonesty and arrogance from the chief law enforcement officer of the United States government.”
