While Attorney General Eric Holder’s Capitol Hill appearance Wednesday was marked by a heated argument with his chief Republican critic, more and more Democrats are joining the fray — in a sign that the Justice Department’s seizure of journalists’ phone records may trigger a bipartisan challenge to his leadership.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., was among the Democrats who sharply questioned Holder Wednesday on the controversy. She questioned why and how Holder was able to recuse himself from that case, and said it appears the department’s actions “have, in fact, impaired the First Amendment.”

“Reporters who might have previously believed that a confidential source would speak to them would no longer have that level of confidence, because those confidential sources are now going to be chilled in their relationship with the press,” she said.

    Get rid of Eric the Red, he is a traitor to our Constitution and he and obummercrude is a traitor to this country and its Constitution, impeachment is not enough. Got it…..

  • So there are things the government can do that the libs don’t like after all.

    • violater1

      They are in fear of getting their assses removed from office in 2014!

      • voncile fullwood

        No!!! if they were they would tell the truth,for the truth sets you free from the lapdog

  • His reply if honest should have been: You were not suppose to know until after the take over.

  • bless2live

    I don’t care what libera ass###s do now! They are sick just like the fraud regime!

  • Dave

    Back lash hell he needs to be put on trial and sent to prison

    • violater1

      • billygeturgun

        Executed hell! He needs to be in hell and roasting!

        • papa6

          can’t get any worse then hell. in GOD’s eyes, he could still change his ways but I find that unlikely.

        • voncile fullwood

          don’t worry when the time comes he will roast in hell,hotter than making the Marine put shade over his head,the lying-dog will roast the anti-christ life will come to ahead

  • Holder has been involved in so many scandals since he has been the AG . We has at least 5 attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11 too. Maybe it’s time for Holder to fired and replaced with someone who follows the laws of our Constitution.

    • voncile fullwood

      Chuck,tell us how many more in Congress needs firing? I could name a dozen

    Eric Holder is the MOST corrupted Entity in this(Regime) administration.

    • billygeturgun

      Nah, I think nobama is the most corrupt as he is pulling Holder’s strings!

  • If it isn’t right, it isn’t right. It is wrong. Even the most liberal Democrats are beginning to realize that they, too, could be targets of the DOJ witch hunts. Maybe someday some of them will wake up and actually read the Constitution. (I am turning blue holding my breath.)

  • Their all guilty, not just Holder…

  • Freedomforall

    Thank you. Now regardless of party affiliation holder should be removed from office immediately and then prosecuted and imprisoned.

  • E Pluribus Unim

    What’s plain is that Holder and his “keeper” are just two breeds of the same jack*ss and both need to be in prison for their crimes against the Constitution.

  • DE Navarro

    Thugs belong behind bars – Holder, Obama, Lerner, Carney, H Clinton, and on and on and the list keeps growing as the house of cards tumbles and this fraud president and his fraud government are exposed.

  • LetsJustVoidTheBillOfRights

    Learning a little something…STUPID liberals?
    Probably not – ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!

  • pysco

    Recuse, that’s just saying he refuses to answer, hold him in contempt…and impeach him…..

    • Made_in_the_USA

      He’s already in criminal comtempt of congress, which I believe is a felony offense. Either way, he shouldn’t be in office, at least suspended w/out pay till the TRUTH is exposed.

  • Nikita63

    Obama’s leftist mouthpiece is as anti-citizen and anti-constitution as his boss and both need to be fully investigated at the demand of Congress in a bipartisan effort to get at the truth of just how criminally unconstitutional and corrupt this administration is and has been since day one. IT IS TIME TO TAKE OF THE BLINDERS FOMENTED BY BITTER PARTY RIVALRY AND FOR THE CONGRESS TO LlVE UP ITS OBLIGATIONS TO THE VARIOUS CONSTITUENCIES. THERE ARE DEFINITE GROUNDS FOR THE IMPEACHMENT OF FAR MORE THAN JUST THE PRESIDENT IN THIS CONTINUING FIASCO OF ONE SCANDAL AFTER ANOTHER. MANY HEADS SHOULD ROLL OVER WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO AMERICAN CITIZENS SINCE THE ADVENT OF THIS ADMINISTRATION FROM HELL IN 2008. We are more oppressed, have fewer freedoms, more debt , less accomplishment and more dissention now than at any point in our history since the War between the States and, over many of the SAME issues, particularly the growing battle over States rights vs, Federal oppression and suppression of the right of the states to govern themselves WHEN THE ONLY WAY THE FEDS WILL IS IN VIOLATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLE, PRACTICE AND THE RULE OF LAW. WHICH THESE DAYS, IS MORE OFTEN THAN NOT!

    You have got to love Liberals…up until this situation they had nothing wrong to say about what either Holder or Obama did. Now however it seems that they draw a line if it directly affects them…and their personal information!!! No, the Constitution isn’t for most Americans…only those working within the Associated Press!

    I once read somewhere that, “Germany became Enemy Number One In The World Under Hitler”, by People who went along with anything…until it directly affected them and then it was to late”! Similar to what is happening within the United States of America under Obama Hitler!

    I also recall seeing on the history channel the Hearings of all Hitlers Military Officers who had helped in Killing Millions of People who disagreed with Obama (opps…I mean Hitler), and each of these officers cried…”I did Nothing Wrong”…I was Only TAKING ORDERS””!

    The point of course, is, ‘you can’t bury your head in the Sand on stand on the 5th’. ‘if you are not a part of the Solution….you are then a part of the Problem’!!

  • Remove Holder now and try him for treason and seditition,NOW ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  • Like I’ve been saying from day one: We have the new Hitler and his henchman E. Hold(card)er that are both black communist scum, that like the rodents they are, need to be removed from POWER! When oh when will AMERIKA ever wake up? This is the hope and change this Godless ghoul was fooling his sycophant fools with; COMMUNIST RULE!

  • Patrick

    The Second Amendment means nothing to Holder, and certainly not the 10th, so why would -any- amendment mean squat to Mr. Obama’s answer to Josef Goebbels?

  • Robert S Moulds

    Eric Holder should resign or be fired he is even making John Ashcroft look good. Between operation fast and furious and phone taps Eric is giving John a run for the money.
