By November 2013, a coalition of GOP legislators decided they’d had enough and formally introduced Articles of Impeachment against Holder.
“For nearly five years, we have witnessed Mr. Holder repeatedly deceive Congress and degrade the credibility of the Justice Department in the eyes of the American people,” the legislators wrote. “Unfortunately, Mr. Holder has continued to act in a manner unbefitting of a cabinet official. He has failed to perform his constitutional duties and violated the law on a number of occasions.”
Of course, Holder’s misdeeds weren’t all spelled out in the Articles of Impeachment. Perhaps his greatest crimes were the things he failed to do, like investigate rampant thievery on Wall Street.
Despite being given $165 million in funds to investigate and prosecute those responsible for the 2008 mortgage crisis, Holder refused to send one single banker to jail and ended up de-prioritizing mortgage fraud to the “lowest-ranked criminal threat” from 2009 to 2011.
Is it any wonder that Holder leaves office with a mere 15% approval rating?
Whether it’s giving the National Security Administration carte blanche to expand their warrantless domestic spying operations or declaring that the president has the legal authority to order a targeted assassination against an American citizen anywhere in the world, Holder has clearly been on the offensive against those he swore an oath to defend.
