Today, Attorney Gen. Eric Holder testified before a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on the Justice Department’s FY2014 budget. He was asked about the seizure of Associated Press phone records and the IRS targeting conservative groups for investigation.
Senator Kirk (R-IL) asked Holder if the DOJ monitored phones for members of Congress, and shockingly, he refused to answer.
The guy who wouldn’t answer this very basic question, has “no intention” of stepping down, mind you.
Cruz explained why on Twitter:
Holder says he won’t resign until he accomplishes all his goals. I guess there are still some amendments in Bill of Rights left unviolated…

Jar Jar weighs in…
In an interview with the Huffington Post, White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett said there’s no chance Attorney General Eric Holderwill resign in light of revelations that his Justice Department has spied on journalists.
“You can take it from me,” she said. “He will be in his position for quite a while.”
The audacity of totalitarianism.
