September 25, 2014 - WASHINGTON – RNC Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the resignation of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder:
“Along with many Republicans, I have repeatedly called for Eric Holder’s resignation. He lost the public’s trust years ago. His departure is overdue.
“His politicization of the Justice Department was inexcusable, and his handling of issues—ranging from Fast and Furious to spying on reporters—was unacceptable. Like the president who appointed him, Holder far too often disregarded the Constitution. He allowed the Obama administration to exceed the limits of its power, and he allowed the IRS to harass and target Americans.
“Americans deserve an Attorney General who respects the Constitution, understands the limits placed on the president’s power, and can ably manage the Justice Department.”
