Attorney General Eric Holderâ€™s list of Operation Fast and Furious critics has grown over the past several days, as four more have signed on to a resolution of â€œno confidenceâ€ in him.
Republican Reps. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Kevin Brady of Texas, Tim Griffin of Arkansas and Tim Walberg of Michigan have all now signed on as co-sponsors of Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosarâ€™s â€œno confidenceâ€ resolution.
Though itâ€™s not directly a call for Holder to step down, the resolution alleges that the nationâ€™s top law enforcement officialâ€™s actions have proven he is not â€œcompetent, trustworthy and beyond reproach,â€ and that he has sought to â€œcover upâ€ mistakes rather than cooperate with Congress â€œin disclosing the events and circumstances and transparently addressing the issues.â€
Griffin told The Daily Caller he signed on to the resolution because Holder has not actively held anyone accountable for Fast and Furious.
â€œAttorney General Holderâ€™s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee earlier this month confirmed what I already believed: the Departmentâ€™s Operation Fast and Furious and his mismanagement of the aftermath, including his unwillingness to hold people accountable, raise serious concerns about his ability to fulfill his duties as our nationâ€™s top law enforcement officer,â€ Griffin said in an email.
A spokeswoman from Bradyâ€™s office told TheDC he is â€œoutragedâ€ about the ill-fated gun walking program, and with the Justice Departmentâ€™s continued stonewalling of congressional investigators.
