Here’s an excerpt from Matthew Boyle of The Daily Caller:

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Peter King told The Daily Caller on Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder pushing to “brainwash” the American people to oppose firearm ownership wasn’t a smart thing for him to say.

“Well, obviously, [it was the] wrong choice of words,” King told TheDC when asked about Holder’s controversial remarks. “One of his [Holder’s] many flaws.”

Since the program has come under congressional scrutiny, 123 members of the House have called on Holder to resign, signed an official resolution of “no confidence,” or both. The latest House member to call for Holder’s resignation was Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Bill Shuster, whose spokesman told TheDC on Monday that he thinks Holder needs to resign.

Three U.S. senators, two sitting governors and all GOP presidential candidates have also called for Holder’s resignation.

King isn’t one of the members who has called for Holder to resign over Fast and Furious — even though he did demand President Barack Obama’s top cop step down during the controversy over Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — and he’s not joining the calls. “I did last year, but I’m not [joining this call],” King said when TheDC asked if he thinks Holder should resign. Pressed further on whether he thinks Holder should resign over Fast and Furious, King said he’ll “leave that to the president now.”

“Obviously, he did a very poor job, but I’m not about to say he should resign right now,” King said, adding that, “I probably would though if I were in that position.”!/deaconDA/status/181880506378489856

This, from the LA Times this morning (link above):

Seven months after federal agents began the ill-fated Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation, they stumbled upon their main suspect in a remote Arizona outpost on the Mexican border, driving an old BMW with 74 rounds of ammunition and nine cellphones hidden inside.

Detained for questioning that day in May 2010, Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta described to agents from theBureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosiveshis close association with a top Mexican drug cartel member, according to documents obtained this weekend by the Times/Tribune Washington Bureau.

The top Fast and Furious investigator, Special Agent Hope MacAllister, scribbled her phone number on a $10 bill after he pledged to cooperate and keep in touch with investigators.

Then Celis-Acosta disappeared into Mexico. He never called.

As of right now, President Obama refuses to take questions on this situation.
