Mr. Speaker, I rise today to shed light on Attorney General Eric Holder’s blatant disregard for the rule of law.
Mr. Holder’s violations of the law are egregious and he should not be immune from the prosecution or given license to act without restraint.
An ordinary citizen would go to jail for selling guns to Mexican drug cartels.
An ordinary citizen would go to jail for secretly obtaining phone records and emails.
An ordinary citizen would go to jail for lying to Congress about an investigation.
What would happen to an ordinary citizen for lying to a judge?
This is just a small part of what Attorney General Eric Holder is responsible for.
As the Court Justice Brandeis said, “In a government of laws, the existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously…. If government becomes a lawbreaker it breeds contempt for law: it invites every man to become a law unto himself. It invites anarchy.”
I ask you, has Attorney General Eric Holder invited anarchy?
I will continue to make this case here in the People’s House at the People’s Pulpit.
And folks, I will be back.
