Representative Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.) said he “has seen enough.” Schilling is the 61st in the House of Representatives to say Attorney General Eric Holder should resign over Operation Fast and Furious.
“Rep. Schilling has seen enough to feel that Attorney General Holder should have known and done more with regards to Operation Fast and Furious, and is supportive of calls for his resignation,” Schilling’s spokeswoman told The Daily Caller.
Now, between independent calls and a “no confidence” resolution drafted by Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), more than 90 lawmakers have called for Holder to step down from his position.
A letter sent to Holder from the House Oversight Committee last week, asks the AG to testify to “examine flaws in the management structure of the Justice Department as demonstrated in the genesis and structure of ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious” in January.
Holder said last week that the criticisms against him and the Justice Department are a Republican attempt to attack the Administration of Barack Obama and even suggested that racial motives were at play.
