    As previously reported, former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder threatened Republicans in Congress against removing Special Counsel Robert Mueller the day after GOP congressmen grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein over Mueller stacking his team of Trump investigators with Hillary Clinton donors and lawyers. Holder issued his threat in a tweet Wednesday morning. “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party,” Holder tweeted.

She is one of at least three attorneys who followed Mueller from WilmerHale.At the firm, Rhee focused on representing people in government investigations, including white-collar criminal probes and criminal and civil fraud matters.But this week, details of Rhee’s client relationships emerged, revealing that she represented Obama...

    The head of FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) fired back at President Trump’s comments against the bureau on Sunday, saying any suggestion that agents aren’t dedicated to their jobs “is simply false.” “Every day, FBI Special Agents put their lives on the line to protect the American public from national security and criminal threats. Agents perform these duties with unwavering integrity and professionalism and a focus on complying with the law and the Constitution,” FBIAA head Thomas O’Connor said in a statement. ”This is why the FBI continues to be the premier law enforcement agency in the world. FBI Agents are...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder is weighing into the he-said he-said of American politics in 2017, refuting comments from President Donald Trump that the FBI’s reputation is in tatters. Mr Holder, who served as the chief of the Justice Department under President Barack Obama, said that there’s more integrity at the FBI than there is in the West Wing. “Nope. Not letting this go. The FBI’s reputation is not in ‘tatters,’” Mr Holder tweeted. “It’s composed of the same dedicated men and women who have always worked there and who do a great, apolitical job. You’ll find integrity and honesty...

    In December, Democratic Senator Bob Menendez blasted the Obama administration for the historic bad deal they reached with the Castro regime in Cuba. Senator Bob Menendez was also a top critic of Barack Obama’s foolish Iranian nuclear deal. This week Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Bob Menendez (D-NJ) spoke about the U.S.-Israel relationship and said that he was not intimidated by anyone, including Israeli’s political enemies or his political friends, when he feels they are wrong.  Today the Obama Department of Justice charged Senator Bob Menendez with corruption. CNN reported: The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A heated exchanged between President Barack Obama and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey) broke out Thursday over whether the U.S. should reimpose sanctions on Iran amid ongoing negotiations over the country's nuclear program, according to two senators who were in the room. Menendez, the leading Democrat pushing for additional sanctions against Iran, forcefully pressed Obama on the need for additional sanctions during a meeting in which Obama urged Menendez and other senators to drop their efforts to pass sanctions legislation. Additional sanctions, Obama argued, could torpedo ongoing negotiations over Iran's nuclear program. The unusually sharp exchange, between...

    The Obama Justice Department has filed its much anticipated corruption indictment against Senator Robert Menendez. He is the New Jersey Democrat who, from his powerful senior seat on the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, has vehemently opposed President Obama’s negotiations with the jihadist regime in Iran, as well as his outreach to Castro’s Cuba. Two things about the Obama administration cannot be denied. First, the president is desperate to cut a deal with the mullahs on their nuclear program, so much so that he has erased virtually every red line he ever purported to draw and has not been shy about...

    “I think it's a bad deal and I've said so for several weeks now. I think we need to put country ahead of party,” Senator Jim Webb said. "It troubles me when I see all this debate about whether this is disloyalty to the president or the Democratic Party.” Webb is a Democrat and he joins a number of other Democrats in criticizing a bad deal that even Obama admitted will allow Iran to get nuclear weapons after a number of years. Obama and his cronies have pursued an extraordinary campaign of vilification against Republicans and Democrats who dared to...

    Frances Robles reports in the New York Times that an ex-aide to Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) stood to benefit from a Dominican port security deal, along with Menendez benefactor Salomon Melgen. From the Times: Mr. Menendez, Democrat of New Jersey, has pushed United States government officials to help enforce a contract that a company owned in part by one of his major donors, Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, has with the Dominican government, which has refused to honor it. A top executive at Dr. Melgen's security company will be Pedro Pablo Permuy, a former national security adviser and senior legislative aide...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder says he is glad to be unshackled from his old job because employment with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee lets him lash out at Republicans like “orange man” President Trump. Politico recently went on the road with the NDRC’s chairman in Virginia for get-out-the-vote efforts on behalf of Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, the Democratic nominee for Virginia governor. An interview at Rising Mount Zion Baptist Church in Richmond covered everything from NDRC’s efforts to raise over $30 million for gubernatorial races to Mr. Trump’s alleged role in empowering “neo-Nazis and white nationalists.” “You don’t do...

    Holder: Northam Needs Extra Voter Turnout Because ‘Voting Machines Get Lost’ BY: Paul Crookston November 7, 2017 6:15 pm Former attorney general Eric Holder said Democrats should seek to drive up voter turnout on Tuesday in Virginia because sometimes "voting machines get lost." The former Obama administration official told an audience at Rising Mount Zion Baptist Church in Richmond, Va., that democratic voters needed to "off the couch" in large numbers, Politico reports. Holder emphasized the need for higher turnout by saying voting machines are not reliable and that the Virginia gubernatorial race should be a repudiation of President Donald...

    When will liberals who claim to oppose illegal guns call for the prosecution of gun criminals Barack Obama and Eric Holder? In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration ordered gun storeowners to illegally sell thousands of guns to criminals.U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with one of these guns.The murderer was sentenced to 30 years in prison, but his accomplices, Eric Holder and Barack Obama, haven’t even been arrested or charged.In September 2012, Obama falsely said that Fast and Furious had “begun under the previous administration.” In reality, Fast and Furious began in October 2009.In October 2013, the...

    In yet another bombshell from Donna Brazile's upcoming book, the former interim head of the Democratic National Committee describes the paranoia she went through surrounding the Russia-linked hacks of Democrats' emails during the 2016 campaign. In the memoir, which will have the title, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House," Brazile talks about the mysterious murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich, which some conspiracy theorists say is because he leaked internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks, and wrote about how she felt her own life was in danger. Brazile says...
  • FLASHBACK: CitiGroup Chose Obama's Cabinet

    In 2008 Michael B. Froman, then Citigroup executive, sends John Podesta a list of cabinet members. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team. Froman’s list proved remarkably prescient. As it proposed, Robert Gates, a Bush holdover, became secretary of Defense; Eric Holder became attorney general; Janet Napolitano, secretary of Homeland Security; Rahm Emanuel, White House chief of staff; Susan Rice, United Nations ambassador; Arne Duncan, secretary of Education; Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services; Peter Orszag,...

    Is it time for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to recuse himself from his investigation into Russian activities in the 2016 presidential election? Lost in much of the discussion over this week’s developments in the growing Russia/Uranium/Clinton scandal is the fact that none other than Mueller was the FBI Director during this investigation. And that investigation is under serious scrutiny. Under Attorney General Eric Holder, the FBI informant at the center of the probe was prohibited from revealing any of the details of the investigation to members of Congress because of a non-disclosure agreement that has been characterized as unusual by...

    Fifteen months before the 13 members of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, known as CFIUS, approved the sale of the Canadian company Uranium One to Russia’s nuclear arm giant Rosatom, the FBI began investigating persons who were connected to the Russian state corporation. The FBI said in court documents and in interviews conducted by Circa that by 2010 they had gathered enough evidence to prove that Rosatom-connected officials were engaged in a global bribery schedule that included kickbacks and money laundering. FBI officials said the investigation could have prevented the sale of Uranium One, which controlled...

    **SNIP**Eric Holder was the Attorney General when the FBI began uncovering the Russian corruption scheme in 2009. Since the FBI reports to him, he surely knew what the bureau had uncovered. What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010. Since the vote was unanimous, it appears Holder knowingly and deliberately countenanced a deal that was based on illegal activities and which gave Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium assets. It gets worse. Robert Mueller was the FBI Director...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that current Attorney General Jeff Sessions has an "almost obsession with marijuana," and said the Justice Department was right to allow states to regulate recreational marijuana sales. As attorney general from 2009-2015, Holder presided over a Justice Department decision to allow states to regulate recreational marijuana sales in violation of federal law so long as certain enforcement triggers such as underage sales and interstate smuggling weren't tripped.
