AG Holder should resign...Sen Orrin Hatch
Utah Republican Orrin Hatch became at least the fifth senator to call
for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation as lawmakers step
up criticism of his handling of probes into a federal gun investigation
and leaks of classified information.
Hatch, who said Holder “ought to retire” during a radio interview
today on the “Mike Huckabee Show,” is the second Republican on the
Senate Judiciary Committee to say Holder should step aside. John Cornyn
of Texas did so as Holder testified before the panel yesterday.
“He’s basically a nice man, but, by gosh, he’s been so partisan in
that job that I’m very concerned about him and tend to support Senator
Cornyn and others who think he ought to retire,” Hatch said, according
to a transcript from the syndicated radio program provided by his
Holder told lawmakers yesterday that he acted appropriately and doesn’t have “any intention of resigning.”
