WASHINGTON -- House Republicans are calling for a special counsel to determine whether Attorney General Eric Holder perjured himself during his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on Operation Fast and Furious, FOXNews.com reported Tuesday. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) is sending a letter to President Barack Obama arguing that Holder cannot investigate himself and will request a probe by a special counsel. The question is whether Holder committed perjury during a Judiciary Committee hearing in May. At the time, Holder indicated he was not familiar with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) program known as Fast and Furious until about April 2011.
