Additionally, 31 other House Democrats penned a letter to President Obama in June 2011 asking the president to direct Holder and the DOJ to comply with the congressional subpoenas and document requests pertaining to the scandal. To date, Obama and Holder have essentially ignored the request.Embarrassing to know this guy is the Attorney General!
Out of 80,000 pages worth of documents House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa has lawfully subpoenaed, the DOJ has only provided between 6,000 to 7,000 pages to Congress. The DOJ has, however, given all of those documents to its internal investigator, the Office of Inspector General.
Holder has not provided any legal reason for withholding these documents from Congress, but the attorney general has claimed he is not covering anything up.
Obama has stood by Holder, issuing statements through spokespeople at key moments indicating that he has full confidence in his attorney general.

120 and Growing
Eric Holder now has 120 Congresscritters calling for his resignation. Granted, all of them are republicans, but even his democratic supporters are asking him to cooperate more.
