The president still seems to have full confidence and Eric Holder something I don't share.
When it comes to a special prosecutor.
Eric Holder cannot investigate himself.
That was California congressman Darrell ice on FOX News Sunday this morning.
Calling for an investigation into what attorney general Eric Holder knew about the government sting operation fast and furious and when He knew it.
He's not the only one.
Nine sheriffs in Arizona -- the program -- out thousands of you us firearms to flood into Mexico some of them to drug cartels.
Of the trial that should -- -- holders removal.
And all county sheriff that Arizona county sheriff's.
All that -- joins us now live from Phoenix sheriff thank you for your time today.
And thank you for having me on appreciate it.
-- I understand your part of this group and you have gone as far to say that this whole thing means the attorney general Eric Holder should either -- -- be fired or He should resign.
There -- some strong martz.
This is threat not only to want fortunate that to our citizens how on earth -- our own government.
Facilitate 2000 guns he's our semi fully automatic.
Weapons AK forty -- fifty caliber sniper rifles they didn't just give them to any person on the street.
They give that gave them to the most violent criminals in North America the Mexican drug cartels and somebody's got to answer for this and what we have sheriff's the majority nine out of the fifteen elected sheriffs of Arizona are Democrats.
In were asking for special counsel to be appointed because we want the truth.
And we know we're not getting the truth from Eric Holder and the department of justice and ATF.
Well the White House is said it stands by the president stands by the attorney general that He has been truthful in what He said in his testimony before congress thus far.
And there are plenty of doubters about that the White House has resisted calling for special counsel do you think.
They will be persuaded.
I think they -- Ask -- this is a free society and a republic where we -- respect the rule of law.
Nobody's above the -- Eric Holder not above the law president Barack Obama is not above a lot there we don't have a king here.
And we need these people held accountable -- -- people who have been killed in Mexico 200 plus people.
We have armed these terrorists in Mexico that have worked to topple the Mexican government.
In my deputies and officers all across the southwest.
Could face the barrel of a gun that are owned government Eric Holder and and the president.
Put into these the hands of these criminals this we believe.
They should be held to account for this and whoever.
Approve this should be criminally held to account for this hacking.
Think that whoever is responsible and ultimately we may get more details is we learned today that war subpoenas are going out over this issue.
How do you think someone could have reason through that this was a viable plan that it did have a legitimate and that it could be a positive.
Investigation in some way.
While the only the only -- explanation AF -- today is while.
Where we were trying to track these weapons and to see as this investigate options spider -- we wanted mid level high level people.
In the drug trade organizations and take them down.
Okay that would be a plausible explanation because we do that would narcotics we do that with cash and was simple crimes where there's no severe threat.
This was a massive.
That 2000 weapons and they had no surveillance they were monitoring.
These people on the cell phones they weren't tracking them direct line of sight surveillance.
This position I -- this is a false excuse it's a lie and this is where.
It's it's insanity to ever give guns to criminals anyways and to somehow think that it's not it's going to and well it's ended badly now agent Brian Terry a hero in our Border Patrol has been murdered in our state into these weapons.
Were traced back to the -- -- there.
Fast and furious program so absolutely I believe He should be fired.
He He should He should resign if He had the honor in his in his office because he's the man in charge.
I'm the sheriff I'm in charge of my office.
Anybody in the military who who always relieve the commanding officer.
Whether they knew or didn't know and it appears to us that that He fully -- and he's only walking back these statements.
After evidence has been provided that shows Eric Holder knew a year plus ago and now he's saying well I was confused by the question.
I didn't understand what exactly they were asking.
That in law enforcement when we see that happening.
Our eyebrows are race and we and we know something doesn't smell right here.
