Democrat: Holder Shouldn’t Resign Over ‘Operation Fast and Furious’

(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee, said Attorney General Eric Holder should not resign over “Operation Fast and Furious.”

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) has called on Holder to take responsibility for the operation, which resulted in the death of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent, and step down.
CNSNews.com asked Maloney on Capitol Hill if she thinks Holder should resign.

“No, I do not. Operation Fast and Furious is under investigation and we’ve had one hearing on it. We intend to have more and more investigations, more interviews and we will go where it takes us,” she told CNSNews.com outside of the Capitol on July 15.
“Right now, we heard about these loopholes in the law – law enforcement asked for greater tools so that they could get convictions and try to stop the flow of illegal guns and that’s where we are now so we will continue our investigation.”
