I fear you are right. But I am still hoping to see justice served.
I’m not sure that the President can pardon someone pre-emptively or that he can issue a blanket pardon. I thought that one possible reason that Issa was not bringing charges against Holder for anything was because he wanted to wait until 0bama is out of office so that 0bama can’t pardon Holder.

(Don't be stupid. We have politicians for that.)
It occurs to me that one reason Gerald Ford lost to Carter was because he issued a preemptive pardon to Nixon. He was never actually indicted. He was being threatened with impeachment, and at the time it seemed a lock that he would be charged with obstruction of justice. (He only had 15 senators who would have voted for acquittal.) However, he resigned before that could happen.
Obama CAN pardon all of Holder's crimes, without Holder ever having to go to court.
