Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to appear again before a congressional committee to answer questions regarding the ongoing Fast and Furious investigation. He has not testified in the investigative hearings since May, when he testified under oath that he had only known about the anti-gunrunning program “a few weeks” before. However, a U.S. Senator told Mr. Holder about the operation a few months before he testified.
The National Rifle Association and 34 House members, including Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Darrel Issa (R-CA), have called for Eric Holder’s resignation. Sources say that there are other lawmakers who want Holder to resign, and it is expected that they could possibly add their voices to the call for his resignation after his testimony.
Tuesday proceedings are intended to find out what Eric Holder knew and when he knew about the gun smuggling operation that has spiraled completely out of control.
Holder’s testimony is expected to start at about 10am ET. To view the proceedings live, go HERE.
