Oliver North says President Barack Obama may not be able to withstand the fallout from the bungled Fast and Furious gun-trafficking operation and the security leak scandal dogging his administration unless he fires Attorney General Eric Holder and other administration officials.
 
“I think it will depend on whether he’s going to be . . . pushing some of those folks out the door who are responsible for the leaks, Eric Holder with Fast and Furious,” North told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday night.
 
The retired Marine lieutenant colonel suggested the heat on Holder — who is facing a possible contempt citation from Congress over his handling of the controversial gun-trafficking operation — may be enough to cost the president the election.
 
North also criticized Holder for not moving quickly enough to investigate the leaks of national security information on the targeting of al-Qaida operatives and cyber-spying on the Iranian nuclear program.
 
“What you have is, it strikes me, is an administration that has literally lost its balance,” North said, suggesting that the president is too “distracted” to deal with all the pressure.
 
But Fox News contributor Lanny Davis, former special counsel to President Bill Clinton, disagreed with North and cautioned Republicans not to “gloat too quickly” because Obama “is going to win this thing” in November.
 
Appearing on Hannity with North, Davis said the investigations of leaks and Holder’s handling of Fast and Furious should go forward, but he insisted that Holder “is a great man of integrity” who is being criticized unfairly by “a partisan Republican Congress.”
