Senator Ted Cruz took the Senate floor to demand the Department of Justice (DoJ) appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If Attorney General Eric Holder fails to do so, Cruz maintained that he should be impeached for failing to enforce the law.
In light of Holder’s extensive history of lawlessness, over 65 thousand Americans have already signed the FreedomWorks petition to impeach Eric Holder.
FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe commented, “Given Holder’s long history of corruption and lawless behavior, does anyone actually believe that he can be trusted to investigate the IRS? How many times do we let the fox guard the hen house and pretend it’s actually solving problems? You have to wonder why Holder is dragging his feet on this. Who is he protecting?”
“The IRS needs to be investigated by a special prosecutor who does not have a conflict of interest. If Eric Holder refuses to pursue truth, justice and the rule of law, he absolutely should be impeached.”
Senator Cruz called for unanimous consent on his resolution, which tells Holder and the DoJ to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS targeting of conservative nonprofit groups and individuals. The resolution includes a long list of wrongdoings committed by the IRS.
