Naturally, the angry racists from the CBC are planning to have a temper tantrum later today when the corrupt Eric Holder is held in contempt of Congress. Yet now we even have moderate Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown calling for Holder to resign. Considering up to 30 Democrats could join the Republicans today, this is an ominous sign.
U.S. Sen. Scott Brown called for embattled Attorney General Eric Holder to resign last night, accusing him of misleading Congress during Brown’s much-ballyhooed one-man Senate debate on WBZ-AM — and was mocked for it by challenger Elizabeth Warren when she made her own solo appearance on MSNBC later.
“He can’t effectively serve the president,” Brown said of Holder last night on “NightSide” with Dan Rea — an event Warren sat out despite Brown’s repeated challenges.
Ahead of an expected contempt of Congress vote against Holder today, Brown said, “For the best interest of the country, I think he should step down and resign. He’s lost the confidence of the American people. Certainly he’s lost the confidence of Congress. He misled Congress. They have a right to know.”
Holder — embroiled in the “Fast and Furious” gun-trafficking scandal — faces a potential vote in the U.S. House today over his refusal to turn over documents related to a gun sting operation that has been linked to the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
“There should be a full and fair exchange of information so we can get to the bottom of it,” Brown said, calling Holder a distraction.
“Mr. Terry’s family needs to know, and American citizens need to know, what happened and why.”
Brian Terry should be a household name. It would be if the media did their job the past two years.
Meanwhile, Brown also took a swipe at the hapless Lizzie Warren.
Asked by Rea about Warren’s claims of Native American heritage, Brown said she should handle it the way he did his own gaffe last week about meeting with “kings and queens.”
“When I make a mistake, I correct it, I own up to it,” Brown said. “When she told the Herald she only learned of her ancestry from the Herald and then went on five weeks misleading the people of Massachusetts … it’s clear she’s not a Native American.”
Warren wasn’t asked by Maddow about the heritage controversy, but challenged Brown to do two more debates on top of the four TV debates they have agreed on.
Gee, Maddow didn’t even ask? Real hard-hitting reporter he is.
