Reports: Eric Holder is Stepping Down
tpnn ^ | on Feb 12, 2014 | By Greg Campbell

Posted on 02/12/2014 12:41:22 PM PST by Lazamataz

Attorney General Eric Holder, long besieged by accusations of corruption and outright felonious behavior, has stated that he may step down in 2014 as the nation’s top alleged law enforcer.

In an article with the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin, Holder admitted that he intends to stay “well into” 2014, but in doing so, has once again fueled speculation that the Attorney General will be stepping down by year’s end. The Justice Department has worked to downplay the rumors and Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted, “Actually, most he said was he planned to stay well into ’14.”

However, it seems that whether Holder is gone tomorrow or several months later, the fact remains that it appears that the scandal-ridden Attorney General is looking for the door- news that is sure to delight conservatives and others who favor officials abiding by the law.

Holder has been held in contempt of Congress for his role in the Fast and Furious scandal which left weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels and one border patrol agent, Brian Terry, dead. The contempt charge stems from Holder’s unwillingness to cooperate in the investigation before being cloaked in a flimsy pretense of executive privilege.

Holder’s Justice Department has been linked to corruption from the moment Holder entered the office. One of the first acts by the new Attorney General was to drop the case of two Black Panthers who intimidated white voters outside a voting station in Philadelphia in the 2008 presidential election. Holder’s Justice Department dropped the case during the sentencing phase.

It has been a rocky ride for Holder, but an even rockier ride for Americans who, perhaps naively, looked to the Attorney General to uphold the rule of law in America.

*IF* Holder steps down (AND I HIGHLY DOUBT IT) look for Obama to appoint Malik Zulu Shabazz from the New Black Panther Party.

The FACT remains that Eric The Red needs to REMOVED from office and then, IMMEDIATELY charged with any and all applicable Criminal and Civil Charges that can be mustered.

A sign the Democrats are in big trouble. Once the Republicans take over the Senate I wouldn’t be surprised to see all sorts of hearing into the corruption that been going on. Holder wants to get out of Dodge. He’s ground zero for Zero.

I think you need to be an active member of a State Bar. MoBama "voluntarily" relinquished her bar card.

But since when has the law mattered to Obama or the Senate who would overwhelmingly confirm her after a 10 minute hearing?

When - WHEN - the revolution begins, Holder won’t have to worry about jail. He’ll be swinging from a tree.

Obama appointing the known TERRORIST Bill Ayers would not surprise me in the least. I would also not be surprised to see Senate Minority Whip, John Cornyn vote to confirm him for that office.

While I’d welcome Holder’s resignation, if it happens, I have a feeling his replacement would be even worse.

“MoBama “voluntarily” relinquished her bar card.”

The way I’ve heard it told, that’s basically the bar association’s version of seppuku.

Sadly, I don't think that will be the case. Just today, the GOP vindicated the administration on Benghazi.

He’d be a lightning rod as a nominee but I’m sure the race card would get him confirmed.

How about Hillary’s VP?
