Cornyn to Holder: I Hope Obama Replaces You, Resign

Posted: Jun 12, 2012 11:55 AM

Texas Senator John Cornyn pulled no punches today during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing where he called for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign immediately. Cornyn's call comes as the House Oversight Committee readies a vote on contempt charges against Holder next week for his ongoing stonewalling of the Fast and Furious investigation.

“You won’t tell the truth about what you knew and when you knew it,” Cornyn said. "It is my sincere hope President Obama will replace you.”

Holder quickly shot back saying, "I have no intention of resigning" and that President Obama has "full confidence" in him and how he has handled the Fast and Furious scandal.
