Ted Cruz - Eric Holder should resign

Not only is Barack Obama everything antithetical to what conservatives see as an ideal direction for this nation, now he is becoming a party to members of his administration breaking the law, and they are doing it for him. More than anything else it seems that Obama's cabinet exists wholly to cover for him, deflect the tough questions and take the blame for an inept and unwilling to lead president.

In the case of Attorney General Eric Holder, we now know he lied on the stand as he sat before a Congressional Subcommittee headed by Darrell Issa to investigate spying on and tapping the phones of AP and Fox News reporters. Holder testified that he had no knowledge whatsoever of anyone tapping the phones or asking for phone records of any reporter at either Fox News or the AP. It was later revealed that Holder in fact personally signed off on the order to tap the phones of a reporter at Fox News.

Now in an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas said the Attorney General should resign. This is the first time a US Senator has called for Eric Holder to step down so it is looking like the heat is finally being turned up on the shenanigans going on in the nearly criminal White House administration of Barack Obama.

Read part of Cruz' interview then watch the video below. Honestly, where are the rest of the statesmen like Ted Cruz our country needs right now?

"Well, I think that the conduct of the Justice Department does not inspire confidence. We have seen pattern after pattern with respect to the investigation of the media. We’ve seen the Department of Justice willing to seize the phone records, to seize the e-mails of this network (Fox News), of the Associated Press, and by all appearances, the attorney general went before Congress, stated he had nothing to do with it — and now it’s become public that he did in fact have quite a bit to do with it.

I think the attorney general needs to come forward and explain what the truth is and why he told Congress something different. … It’s unprecedented, and the degree of willingness of this administration to target a reporter for this network as an unindicted co-conspirator — I mean, that is without precedent, and unfortunately I think it’s part and parcel of a pattern from this administration of not respecting the Bill of Rights. Not respecting the First Amendment, not respecting the Second Amendment, not respecting our Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights regarding drone strikes, regarding the IRS.

Over and over again, the pattern we’ve seen is an unfortunate willingness to use the machinery of the federal government as a tool, and a partisan tool, to punish those perceived as your political enemies."

And later when asked by Kelly if Holder should resign, Senator Cruz said this:

"Yes, absolutely, and I think the reason is this Department of Justice has demonstrated a willingness to disregard the law."
