On “Face the Nation” this week, Senator John Cornyn (R., Texas) said it’s past time for Attorney General Eric Holder to step down. He cited Fast and Furious, as well as the Department of Justice’s monitoring of AP reporters’ phone calls. Cornyn also questioned the circumstances of Holder’s recusal. “You know, I’ve lost confidence in the attorney general a long time ago over his cover-up over the Fast and Furious investigation,” he said.
“I think it’s past time for him to go and for the president to appoint somebody who the public can have confidence in,” he concluded.
