    Associates of Joe Biden have reached out to former Attorney General Eric Holder about the process of selecting a running mate, according to a person close to the former vice president’s campaign. Holder helped guide former President Obama’s running mate-selection process in 2008, along with Caroline Kennedy and longtime Democratic operative Jim Johnson, who stepped down from that role after a week amid a controversy related to mortgages he received. That Biden’s associates have reached out to Holder about the selection process was first reported on Thursday by The New York Times. The Times also reported that Biden had spoken...
  • 'Shut the hell up': Eric Holder triggered by reporter exposing Andrew McCabe prosecutor's Democratic bona fides

    Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lost his temper on Thursday in reaction to details surrounding the Democratic prosecutor and Obama administration holdover who dropped the case against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, telling a reporter to "shut the hell up" and accusing him of wanting to "use the justice system for political reasons." What are the details? Investor's Business Daily alum and RealClearPolitics contributor Paul Sperry tweeted Tuesday, "BREAKING: Molly Gaston, the asst US Attorney who signed letter to McCabe's lawyer informing McCabe she was closing criminal case against him, is Democrat who's given thousands to Dems including...

    Obama’s corrupt “wingman” AG Eric Holder lashed out at investigative reporter Paul Sperry this week and told him to ‘shut the hell up.’Recall, Paul Sperry revealed the identity of the anti-Trump CIA ‘whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella in an explosive Real Clear Investigations report.Sperry also exposed the left-wing federal prosecutor who let McCabe off the hook.McCabe was let off the hook by the feds even though he admitted lying to investigators.“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe,” prosecutors J.P. Cooney and Molly Gaston wrote to...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday openly called for 18-year term limits for Supreme Court justices, lending his support to a push that has gained steam among Democrats amid the Trump administration’s rapid-fire federal judicial appointments — and the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy. Holder, who once described himself as former President Barack Obama’s “wingman,” this week also took a shot at Attorney General Bill Barr, saying the current state of the Justice Department (DOJ) is a politicized “disaster.” Speaking Saturday at Pomona College’s Bridges Auditorium, in Claremont, Calif., Holder said: “I don’t think someone should have...

    The Federalist ^ | 02/18/2020 | Rep. Chip Roy
    No one should be above the law, Republican or Democrat. Nor should our elected leaders undermine equal justice under the law.Okay, now that these obvious statements have been made, what should we make of the 1,100 signatures to a letter calling on Attorney General Barr to resign amid all the debate regarding the Department of Justice (DOJ)? As someone who served, albeit briefly, as a federal prosecutor, this question is of particular interest to me.First, consider that the DOJ resides in the Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Department of Justice Building. Bobby Kennedy was his brother’s closest political ally and...
  • Where are the Prosecutions for Fast and Furious?

    It's been about 10 years since the public discovered Fast and Furious, the gun walking operation conducted by the ATF under the Obama administration. The ATF arranged for straw buyers to purchase guns from American gun stores and transfer them to arms traffickers who would give them to drug cartels in Mexico. Ostensibly, the ATF would then track down the cartels. But they lost track of the guns, and some were used to kill Americans. Yet where are the prosecutions of the Obama officials who ran it? The victims and their families have never received justice. But they're looking into...

    This was entire predictable and expected. The long knives have come out for AG Bill Barr and US Attorney John Durham, in the form of veiled threats from Eric Holder and the NY Times (and of course every nitwit democrat in Congress). It seems that the President, i.e. this President, is not entitled to equal justice under the law. Earlier this month Eric Holder, having no access to the facts, wrote an editorial ripping into Barr: Holder, who served as attorney general under President Barack Obama, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post where he said he was “reluctant to publicly criticize” President Trump’s...

    Eric Holder and Wapo threaten U.S. Attorney John Durham for looking into spygate We’ve all heard the joke. A thuggish looking guy walks into a business he is trying to shakedown and says, “Nice little store you have here. It’d be a shame if something happened to it.” Wink, wink. The message is crystal clear; do what the bully wants or else something really bad is going to happen. This scene has now played out in real life. In a so-called “news” article in the Washington Post recently, “Experts fear Durham’s Reputation at Risk in FBI Probe,” the newsletter for...

    Whether investigating charges of torture by the C.I.A., rolling up an organized crime network or prosecuting crooked government officials, John H. Durham, the veteran federal prosecutor named by Attorney General William P. Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia inquiry, burnished his reputation for impartiality over the years by keeping his mouth closed about his work. At the height of the Boston mob prosecution that made his name, he not only rebuffed a local newspaper’s interview request, but he also told his office not to release his résumé or photo. That wall of silence cracked this month when Mr....

    In a Washington Post op-ed Barack Obama’s attorney general Eric Holder call Bill Barr “so nakedly partisan” he is “unfit” to serve as President Trump’s attorney general. As we’d say in New Jersey, “Da Noive!” A quick review of Holder’s record shows him to be the most nakedly partisan attorney general since JFK picked baby brother Bobby for the job a half-century prior. As late as 2013, Holder was boasting about his partisanship. When asked whether he would continue on as Obama’s attorney general after the reelection, Holder famously replied, “I’m still the President’s wingman. So I’m there with my...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder, who ran the Justice Department like it was a division of the Democrat Party instead of the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, penned an op-ed in the Washington Post Wednesday that could certainly be seen as a threat to U.S. Attorney John Durham. Holder, who was held in contempt of Congress for refusing to honor lawful subpoenas for information about the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal but was let off the hook by a federal judge Obama appointed, claimed that current AG William Holder is “unfit” to hold his office because he deigned to disagree...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder claimed his successor William Barr was “unfit” to continue in his post as head of the Department of Justice. Holder, who served as attorney general under President Barack Obama, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post where he said he was “reluctant to publicly criticize” President Trump’s attorney general but felt the need to speak out after Barr issued public statements about disagreements he had with Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on alleged FISA abuse. He also criticized Barr’s remarks from a Federalist Society event where he said the founders intended for one man to...

    Eric Holder, who headed the U.S. Justice Department under former President Barack Obama, penned a column late Wednesday in which he calls Attorney General William Barr an unfit successor due to "nakedly partisan" actions and loyalty to President Trump. Barr has been a favorite target of Trump critics since becoming attormey general in February following the departure of Jeff Sessions. Barr's detractors see him as a high-ranking enabler of the president who may use the department to serve Trump's personal and political interests. In an interview with Fox News earlier this year, Barr said he was ready for the criticism.

    Here come the hyper-partisan hounds. A new nonprofit called American Oversight launched this week to combat President Trump's "culture of impunity." The outfit declared itself "nonpartisan" and claims its crusaders will fight for a "transparent and ethical government." But like Waylon Jennings once crooned, "Baby, that dog won't hunt." These Democrat operatives aren't interested in accountability. Their mission is to attack, obstruct and destroy their political opponents at all costs. Executive Director and Obama donor Austin Evers is certainly familiar with the "culture of impunity." He worked as a lawyer at Williams and Connolly -- the firm representing Hillary Clinton...

    At 8:15pm last evening Washington Post journalist Devlin Barrett posted a supportive article for the CNN (Manu Raju) news exclusive that outlined an “FBI Official” who was under criminal investigation as an outcome of the inspector general review of FISA. The original WaPo article by Devlin Barrett noted the FBI official was actually a “line-level” lawyer who worked “under FBI Agent Peter Strzok.” At 12:15am, the WaPo article was significantly edited, two more journalists (Ellen Nakashima and Matt Zapotosky) were added to the byline. Unfortunately, no explanation or notation of the changes were given....... If you have followed the case...

    The Justice Department begged a federal judge to not tell Fox News reporter James Rosen that it was tracking his telephone calls and emails in a probe regarding a national security leak. U.S. Attorney Ron Machen argued in 2010 that the traditional 30-day notice period did not apply to Rosen as Justice secretly monitored his Gmail account, according to new exhibits unsealed this week and disclosed by The Hill. “Where, as here, the government seeks such contents through a search warrant, no notice to the subscriber or customer of the e-mail account is statutorily required or necessary,” Machen wrote in...

    ormer U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is again considering running for the Democrat nomination for president in 2020 after previously ruling out a run, a move that comes as former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has filed presidential primary paperwork in Alabama signaling he may be a late entrant to the race. All of this comes as speculation builds that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee, may run again in 2020 as well

    Criminal investigators have arrested a suspect with a possible connection to the killing of nine American citizens, three women and six children, in the Mexican border state of Sonora. The Agency for Criminal Investigation in the state of Sonora said in a statement on its Facebook page Tuesday that officers found the suspect — whose name and sex has not been released — in the town of Agua Prieta, near the border with Arizona. "A person was arrested in possession of two .223 long guns, a .308 long gun, ten .223 caliber magazines, a .308 full magazine and a 50-gauge...

Rhonita Maria LeBaron died along with her twin 6-month-old babies and her two other children aged 8 and 10 when drug cartel gunmen opened fire on their van, hitting the gas tank and causing an explosion, relatives say.
