Investors Business Daily is taking a hard line on Eric Holder and his perjurious testimony given to the House Judiciary Committee regarding when he first knew of Operation Fast and Furious. In an editorial published this evening entitled “Indict Eric Holder”, they concluded:
As Issa told radio talk show host Laura Ingraham last month: “We have a paper trail of so many people knowing that the only way the attorney general didn’t know is he made sure he didn’t want to know. … But if you don’t want to know something of this sort, then you shouldn’t have the job he has.”
We’d go a step further. Baseball star Roger Clemens was equally vehement when he told a House committee in 2008: “Let me be clear. I have never taken steroids or HGH.” Clemens was indicted for lying to Congress.
The same should go for Eric Holder.
And I would add that IBD is correct.
