Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) told local supporters at a town hall in his northern Florida district Tuesday night that he and other Republicans are currently drafting a resolution seeking impeachment for Attorney General Eric Holder.
"It's to get him out of office—impeachment," Yoho said of the forthcoming resolution, according to the Ocala Star-Banner newspaper, adding, "it will probably be when we get back in (Washington). It will be before the end of the year. This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not.”
The local newspaper noted that Yoho and other House Republicans are planning to approach House Speaker John Boehner with the plan shortly.
Yoho’s chief of staff Kat Cammack alluded in a comment to the local paper that the resolution will likely have a focus on Operation Fast and Furious. “Obviously there is a lot frustration with our attorney general,” Cammack said. “You can name the botched programs. Fast and Furious has been one of the No. 1 complaints we get in our office and why no one has been held accountable.”
