GOP critic threatens impeachment over 'Fast and Furious'

Washington (CNN) -- A top GOP critic of President Barack Obama's Justice Department cranked up the political heat Thursday on Attorney General Eric Holder, threatening possible impeachment over the handling of Operation Fast and Furious, a severely flawed and now discredited federal gun-sting plan.

"Heads should roll," Wisconsin Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner told Holder during an appearance by the attorney general before the Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee.

"There is really no responsibility within the Justice Department. The thing is, if we don't get to the bottom of this -- and that requires your assistance on that -- there is only one alternative that Congress has and it is called impeachment."

Sensenbrenner did not make clear if he was referring to the possible impeachment of Holder or other top Justice Department officials.
