Ted Cruz: Holder must be impeached if Lerner isn’t indicted

Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached if he doesn’t indict former Internal Revenue Service manager Lois Lerner and everyone else involved in the IRS targeting scandal, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Thursday.

Calling Holder “the most partisan attorney general the country has ever had,” he told Sean Hannity on his Thursday radio program that Holder’s actions have been out of step with his department’s “bipartisan tradition of resisting partisan pressure and upholding the rule of law.”

Cruz noted that not a single person has been indicted in the eight months since the IRS targeting scandal was first made public, even though both President Obama and his attorney general professed outrage over the incident and promised to get to the bottom of it.

The senator was “very pleased” with the House Oversight Committee’s finding that  Lerner was in contempt of Congress, but that it’s up to the Department of Justice to bring criminal charges against her.

Cruz also reserved criticism for the president’s own “pattern of lawlessness” that “is breathtaking” and “dangerous.”

He noted that although abuse of power isn’t an invention of the Obama administration, “when Republican presidents have abused their power, Republicans have been willing to stand up to that.”

    The IRS is the greatest threat to freedom in America. Holder must be impeached. A very long prison term would do justice.

      In view of the dead Border Patrol agents, some 200 dead Mexicans, Holder should be tried and executed.

    Holder should be impeached, period.

    You all know he won’t do anything. He still thinks it’s a phony scandal like his king does.

      I think they know it is a scandal, but since so many just listen blindly and accept whatever the current administration says, the easiest way to deal with it is to just dismiss this stuff as republican partisanship to trash BHO. Certainly they have the MSM on their side, which makes it even easier.

    So da cruz, who loves using military and veterans as political fodder, came into the Senate at age 43 and dodging a visit to his recruiter after 9/11 and with the two war/occupation theaters and da bush raising the max recruitment age twice, finally to 42, finally admits to the ‘chickhawk’ standing:

    “” Ted Cruz ? @tedcruz
    Saw this, but noticed an error. So I wanted to make one thing clear: I don’t smoke cigarettes http://bit.ly/1nqK08i

    What a ‘patriot’!!!! note: who ever made these posters shoulda used a chest tattoo closer to the ‘chickenhawk’ symbol for better clarity, but point made, especially by cruz.
