Sen. John Cornyn lambasted Attorney General Eric Holder and called for his resignation Tuesday morning during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
Holder appeared before the committee to address questions about Operation Fast and Furious and alleged politically-motivated national security intelligence leaks.
Cornyn called for Holder to resign over the attorney general’s handling of Fast and Furious, making him now the fourth U.S. senator to do so.
The Texas Republican joins Sens. Jim DeMint, Johnny Isakson and James Inhofe in demanding Holder resign over the scandal.
Cornyn is the closest U.S. senator to the investigation who has called for Holder to resign and now he’s the only one who has done so to Holder’s face.
Cornyn started talking about Holder’s “track record” when Holder interrupted – prompting Cornyn to accuse Holder of “filibustering” his time.
