Matthew Boyle has been on the ” Retire Holder” beat for The Daily Caller for the past several weeks. The latest call for the embattled Attorney General to step down comes from SC Rep Gowdy, who says Holder “needs to go now.”
South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy told Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer on Friday morning that Attorney General Eric Holder “needs to go now.”
Gowdy, who has been intimately involved with the House oversight committee investigation into Operation Fast and Furious, became the 54th congressman to demand Holder’s resignation. Gowdy adds that he backs Wisconsin Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner’s suggestion “100 percent” that impeachment proceedings may be necessary to remove the attorney general from office.
Hemmer asked if the oversight committee has the power to impeach Holder. Gowdy responded, “Absolutely.”
“I hope it doesn’t get to that,” Gowdy added. “I hope he gets the message.”
