Ted Cruz is calling out Eric Holder on the IRS targeting scandal. He wants a special prosecutor to investigate the case and thinks that if Holder fails to do so, he should be impeached. See below via Townhall:

Republican Senator Ted Cruz called for Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups on the Senate floor Thursday afternoon and said if Holder fails to do so, he should be impeached.

“We need a special prosecutor with meaningful independence to make sure justice is served and our constitutional rights to free speech, assembly, and privacy are protected,” Cruz said in a statement. “If Attorney General Eric Holder does not appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS, the House should use its power to impeach him. Impeding justice is intolerable and he should not be permitted to refuse the American people a true investigation into the actions of those who used the machinery of government to target, intimate, and silence them for politically driven reasons.”
