Sen. Grassley to ask for resignation of highest-level person who signed off on Fast and Furious

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley told The Daily Caller on Thursday that he’ll call for the resignation of the highest-level government official who signed off on Operation Fast and Furious. At this point, though, he’s not sold on whether that person is Attorney General Eric Holder.

“I’m not going to ask for anybody’s resignation until I find out who signed off on this at the highest level of government — and then I’m going to ask for that person’s resignation,” Grassley said in a phone interview.

When TheDC asked Grassley if he thought Holder signed off on Fast and Furious, or at least knew about it, he wasn’t sure. “We’re going to answer that question before we stop this investigation,” Grassley said. “All I can say is, if [Holder] didn’t know about it, he should’ve known about it.”

Grassley, the ranking Republican member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, also told TheDC he thinks the congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious will carry into next year. Seeing as 2012 is a presidential election year, Fast and Furious may become a campaign issue for President Barack Obama.

At least three members of Congress have directly called for Holder’s resignation. They are Reps. Paul Gosar, Raul Labrador and Blake Farenthold.

Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not returned TheDC’s requests for comment about the calls for Holder’s resignation.

Another reason Fast and Furious might become a 2012 campaign issue is Maryland Republican Senate candidate Dan Bongino, an ex-Secret Service agent who used to guard Obama. Bongino went on record with TheDC about DOJ reforms he’d like to see post-Fast and Furious. (RELATED: Issa subpoenas Justice Department over Fast and Furious)

Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy is expected to bring Holder before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, soon. But his staff won’t answer whether he thinks Fast and Furious is important enough for its own hearings. Instead, a spokesman said that senators can ask Holder about it at a general Judiciary Committee hearing.

“It would be nice if Chairman Leahy would do it [hold Senate hearings specific to Fast and Furious], but he’s not going to do that,” Grassley said.

Because Grassley is in the minority party in the Senate, he doesn’t have subpoena power. But, from the House side, Rep. Darrell Issa does have subpoena power and can compel Holder and the DOJ to offer up documents and other information.

Favors should not be an option. It's like selling your soul to the devil.
