Now -- could also become the first attorney general to be barred from the practice of law.
Last week the DC bar association received a formal complaint against older.
For ethics violations linked to the fast and furious gun running scandal.
Holder's Justice Department issued the state well.
It appears to be a desperate attempt by some factions to drag out the destructive political games.
That Americans are rightly fed up -- joining us now the two men behind the -- ethics complaint.
There are also the ones who were out and front on the story on operation fast and furious they broke the story.

Thank you -- for being with district congratulations.
On breaking fast and furious and your reporting on this has been outstanding.

We we've talked to some fortune.
We're not slide TARP reform Wallace -- -- -- DC bar council -- set at 15100 complaints.
Filed each share they -- follow up on some 500 formal investigations.
-- to five to fifty lawyers actually be and a being disbarred.
What would you put your odds I'll start with -- affirmative.
I'm not sure that the DC bar is going to do anything except be apologists for the administration is kind of an expectation.
But I don't believe that Mike and I have ever said that.
Of the complaint and -- saying well you know wasn't professionally worded well.
There has to be a mechanism for the average citizen to be able to file a complaint which is what we did.
Or might you cash considered in some quarters rather dangerous.
Your your fans of the constitution you is -- truth.
What has been the reaction to your activism.
Well ATF whistle blowers love us.
To tell you that -- It may be a small.
I -- -- measure the American public I can answer part of the question a large measure there have public appreciates everything you guys that.
Well thank you we've been lucky you know that there's an old soldiers prayer.
Oh lord make my enemies both arrogant -- -- cupid and we've been fortunate that the that the administration has been all along both arrogant and stupid and the latest stupidity is claiming executive privilege which many lawyers were were absolutely.
-- -- that they would do that it's can't tantamount to.
Admission of guilt.
-- as you constructed I mean you're scooped everyone on fast secure you've worked and followed closely.
The whistle blowers.
Where do you think that we are headed now because there's seems to have -- if you will like pause.
On the part of the house oversight committee here not that -- in any -- criticizing -- they've done great work.
Of but it seems that they have hit if you will something -- eight.
And momentary pause at least is they try to divine what the courts will -- with the -- content.
I would react and simply say that the pause is all -- on the surface.
And that based on calls that I received even is.
Way it is this afternoon.
Eric Holder has much more to worry about then our bar complaint.
Well let's talk about what else there is to worry about and that is that the unsealing of those indictments five.
-- those -- the indictments.
Unsealed by DOJ.
Your thoughts David first about the the tightening.
Of that unsealing.
And the purpose.
Yes it it seems to have been done in a way to make it look like they were out there we're doing something -- -- -- going after the real dangerous bad guys.
I questioned not only the timing.
I question revealing and on stealing the identities and posting the pictures and then letting everybody know all by the way these guys were out there.
Ripping off the drug cartels out in the desert.
You know they don't take lightly to that it's like The Sopranos episode you know you're not gonna let somebody come in and rip off your gang a rip off your mules.
And -- not expect that for good public relations you're gonna have to take some machetes to some heads and -- some people from bridges.
I just think that.
That whole thing is is just very curious the way that they did it.
-- we wrap up here what can we expect next in the fast and furious.
I'd say that.
Rule will likely see a story.
Coming out bit.
More than suggests -- he's already committed perjury.
I think other agencies will be drawn into this Department of Homeland Security -- State Department.
You know when you smuggle thousands of weapons -- to a foreign country.
It's a violation of the international trade and arms regulations.
And the amount of inner agency cooperation that has to happen there.
There's a lot of people that are in trouble the people who were charged with enforcing those regulations are the people who actually broke the regulations.
But don't we thank you for being here we appreciate -- state dangerous William --
