Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) speculated on Thursday that Attorney General Eric Holder was resigning from office to distract attention from Obamacare and “the world falling apart.”
“Because of the timing, I can’t help but wonder if this is the president’s attempt to change the subject from the horrors that Obamacare has caused people’s health care and the dismal economy and the world falling apart because of this president’s foreign policies or the lack there of,” the Texas Congressman said during an interview with Radio America.
Gohmert, who famously sparred with Holder during Congressional investigations into the Fast & Furious operation and has repeatedly called for his impeachment, went on to accuse the outgoing Attorney General of partnering with “radical Islam,” which, he claimed, “has an open door at the White House.”
The allegations are nothing new from Gohmert. Following the bombing of the Boston Marathon in 2013, Gohmert directly accused Holder of siding with terrorists. “Think about it, when your attorney general spent more of his legal career helping terrorists than defending the country, then you know we all have certain biases and lean certain ways,” he said.
