Cummings Says Comparing Obama’s ‘Wingman’ Eric Holder To Bill Barr Is ‘Tough’
The Daily Caller ^ | 05.02.19 | Kerry Picket

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings could not elaborate much about the comparisons between former Attorney General Eric Holder and Attorney General Bill Barr.

Democrats say Attorney General Bill Barr covers for President Donald Trump and call him the president’s “personal attorney,” while Holder called himself former President Barack Obama’s “wingman.” Republicans often criticized Holder for protecting President Obama by often refusing to release documents by the Oversight Committee when the GOP held the majority.

“Well that’s a tough comparison and I’m glad you asked the question, but I’ve got to tell you that one of the things that I noticed about President Obama is the difference of night and day between Obama and this President,” Cummings said regarding Holder’s previous “wingman” remark.

“Obama, and I’ve said this many times—he ran a clean shop. OK? And I had a chance to see it up front and personal. Now if…Obama had told one lie, the press would have been all over it. Here’s a man who has told 10—what is it? Ten thousand in two years? Come on now. There’s no comparison.”

A clean shop, aside from those thousands of military weapons secretly going to narco-traffickers with ZERO GPS trackers.

In order to generate bloody mass-murder headlines.

THAT kind of clean shop.

“Now if…Obama had told one lie, the press would have been all over it.”

Obama: “You can keep your insurance...”

The “capsize” guy is Hank Johnson, of Georgia’s 4th district.

Elijah Cummings represents Maryland’s 7th district.

And Eric Holder self-investgated the 0bama Administration over any abuse Republicans forced their hands on, and Eric quickly and always said, “We investigated the allegations and found absolutely no truth to them.”

And it always ended right there.

The good thing is, people are seeing just how radical the Dems are. Question is, will it make a difference? Vote harvesting is so green, woke and virtuous!

Cummings’ district Mayor just resigned from accusations of corruption.

Too bad they didn’t get him too.

For Cummings comparing one sock to the other in the morning is tough.

I read somewhere, it wasn’t “just” fully automatic weapons.

Also NVDs. Night vision devices. The high-speed version, that doesn’t need an external sources of infrared or whatever. $$$

Oh, and hand grenades too.
