Should Eric Holder Resign Over 'Fast and Furious'?
On America's Newsroom this morning, Martha MacCallum asked whether Attorney General Eric Holder should resign over the botched 'Fast and Furious' operation.
A new report claims to have found 57 more guns tied to the operation that were recovered at Mexican crime scenes, including a Jan. 2010 attack in Juarez in which drug cartel gunmen killed 16 people at a birthday party.
Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has joined 130 House members in calling for Holder to resign. A recent Justice Department Inspector General report said there was no evidence that Holder knew about 'Fast and Furious."
Jay Sekulow, chief counsel at the American Center for Law & Justice, said it is extremely unlikely that President Obama would ask for Holder's resignation so close to Election Day. But Sekulow also argued that it is unacceptable for Holder to maintain that he didn't know about the operation.
"There is no good explanation for the attorney general. ... This ended up being a massive operation that reached (Holder's) principal deputy and the attorney general's defense is, 'I don't know?' Sorry, that's not the way it's supposed to work," said Sekulow.
