Texas senator John Cornyn told Attorney General Eric Holder to resign earlier today at a hearing on Capitol Hill: 

"You’ve violated the public trust in my view by failing to perform the duties of your office. So, Mr. Attorney General it is with more sorrow than with regret and anger that I would say you leave me with no alternative but to join those who call on you to resign your office," Cornyn told Holder directly.
