Developing: Rep. Paul Gosar To Join Impeach Eric Holder Effort or Start His Own


If Rep. Paul Gosar has his way, Holder can add another first to his bio: the first sitting cabinet secretary to be impeached.

Gosar, R-Ariz., tells U.S. News he plans to either draft articles of impeachment or co-sponsor existing impeachment legislation introduced in November by Rep. Pete Olson, R-Texas, which has 26 co-sponsors. He anticipates deciding between the two options next week........

Gosar's crusade culminated in the House voting 255-67 in June 2012 to find Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena for documents. Seventeen Democrats voted with all but two Republicans.

The waters calmed after President Barack Obama declared executive privilege over the Fast and Furious documents. Holder declined to enforce the House's contempt citation against himself.
