  • Holder says Barr is 'paying a price' for spearheading Russia probe misconduct investigation

    Holder: Concerned Barr is acting as Trump's lawyer, not attorney general Former Attorney General Eric Holder told Fox News on Tuesday that current Attorney General Bill Barr "is paying a price" and sacrificing his credibility by spearheading U.S. Attorney John Durham's ongoing probe into possible misconduct by the intelligence community at the outset of the Russia investigation. Holder also remarked separately that it was a "reality" that Republicans will "cheat" in the 2020 elections by trying to "move polling places" and "a whole variety of things" -- prompting Republicans to dismiss his "outlandish and baseless accusations." Holder's comments came a...

    Tucked inside a narrow wedge of a traditional open-air market is one of Mexico’s most dangerous black market operations. It’s known as the Tepito. It’s a barrio where even the police mostly remain outside. Inside, it’s under the tightly controlled thumb of the Union de Tepito, otherwise known as the Union Cartel – one of the capital city’s most violent and well-financed criminal players. ... And, the ATF itself became a contentious piece of that puzzle between 2009 and 2011 in what became known as “Operation Fast and Furious,” when the ATF’s Phoenix Field Division allowed illegal gun sales in...

  • What does it say for 2020 dems when Eric Holder looks like a moderate?

    The democrat party has swung so far to the left such that in contrast "my people" Eric Holder appears to be a moderate. Holder is no stranger to controversy:   Yet they're making Holder look good. Pretty much all 2020 dems want to do away with ICE and destroy the country by decriminalizing illegal border crossing and eliminating borders. Recently Holder said that that might not be a good idea: Former Attorney General Eric Holder is defending the Obama administration against criticism from the left about its deportation efforts while warning Democratic presidential hopefuls that the U.S. needs borders. "The...

    Shirley Skipper-Scott, a graduate from Alabama State, was warden of the Metro Correctional Center in New York City. She was reassigned today following the death of the most important inmate of this century, Jeffrey Epstein. She was obviously not the woman for the job. Under her watch she allowed the highest profile prisoner in the US got “suicided.”

    Many times over the last 8-10 years, I've seen some composite photos showing headshots of all the main Dem criminal players of recent years: Obama, Hillary, Holder, Lynch, Pelosi, etc. Now, when I need such a picture, I can't find it! If you know of such a picture, could you please post a link? Tried using google, but either I can't find the right combo of keywords or -- more likely -- the google algorithm is censoring what I'm looking for. Thanks all.

    Full title: 9 Times The Obama Administration Fought Subpoenas or Blocked Officials from Testifying Before Congress After the long and thorough, and, of course, incredibly expensive Mueller investigation, Democrats were left distraught over a lack of any crime to justify going forward with impeachment. In the wake of the Mueller report, they’ve since promised new investigations in the hopes of finding some crime to justify putting the country through a process that most don’t want us to go through just because Democrats haven’t gotten over the 2016 election. In recent weeks, stories about subpoenas being challenged and Trump officials being...

    It was bad enough when the Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder engaged in spying on journalist James Rosen (and even spied on his parents' phone records). And the same cast of characters secretly spied on Associated Press reporters -- also in the name of tracking down government leakers. Amid those discoveries were NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden's revelations about massive government spying on the citizenry, which Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had denied under oath. As the dominos began to fall, Holder expressed some regret, particularly as it applied to the intrusion upon journalists, who until the...

    As the Democrat Lilliputians try to make Atty. Gen. William Barr the second cabinet officer to be held in contempt of Congress, it is serves us well to remember that Democrats didn’t quite have the same attitude toward a President protecting his administrative turf when the first, Eric Holder, was under President Obama’s executive privilege umbrella during the Fast and Furious scandal (sorry, Joe). Unlike the current “collusion delusion”, Holder/Obama’s Fast and Furious gun-running operation involved real crimes, real dead bodies, and real obstruction of justice as administration officials colluded with Mexican drug cartels to supply them with high-powered semi-automatic...

    **SNIP** That was on June 28, 2012, when the House voted by 255-to-67 (including 17 Democrats in favor and two Republicans against) to hold Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt for failure to turn over documents related to the notorious “Operation Fast and Furious” (a move by the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Bureau to permit sales of guns to criminals across the Mexican border in the hope it would lead to the capture of drug cartel leaders). Then-House Minority Leader Pelosi completely ignored the specific charge against Holder and told reporters that the entire concept of holding...

    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...

    It has pained U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to watch how the White House and Justice Department handled Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation - particularly U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s actions after the long-awaited report landed. Holder, attorney general from 2009 to 2015 under President Barack Obama, said Barr’s move to summarily absolve the president before releasing the report, both in his summary to Congress and in a press conference this week, is incongruent with the independence expected of that department. “He’s making mistakes. The attorney general of the United States is the people’s lawyer, not the president’s lawyer,”...

    Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder claimed Friday that any “competent” prosecutor would be able to make a successful obstruction of justice case against President Trump based on the findings outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. “ANY competent public corruption prosecutor would bring obstruction charges against Trump/and win. Only reason Mueller did not was because of the flawed DOJ [Justice Department] restriction against indicting a sitting President. He said so (below). Congress now has a constitutional responsibility,” Holder wrote on Twitter.

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder asked an MSNBC audience, "I hear these things about 'let’s make America great again' and I think to myself, 'exactly when did you think America was great?'" Holder went on to parrot progressive gripes about America: "It certainly wasn’t when people were enslaved. It certainly wasn’t when women didn’t have the right to vote. It certainly wasn’t when the LGBT community was denied the rights to which it was entitled." When Holder served as Attorney General, he was found in criminal contempt of Congress . While Holder's dismissal of American greatness might seem surprising to...

    It turns out New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo isn’t the only prominent Democrat who questions whether America was ever that great. In pointed terms during an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday, Obama-era attorney general Eric Holder posed the question to MAGA-chanting Trump supporters: "Exactly when did you think America was great?" HOLDER ANNOUNCES HE WON'T RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020 The comments echoed those of Cuomo, who took heavy criticism for remarking last year that America “was never that great.” Together, both off-the-cuff comments amount to stunning statements from public figures who until recently were considered potential presidential candidates. In...

    There is in the United States today a crisis of leadership — caused and perpetuated by an administration that uses fear to stoke divisions and lies to support broken policies. It would be easy for Americans to grow pessimistic — but as I’ve traveled to 25 states over the past year, I have found that the people of this country are better, and more caring, than these small-minded leaders would have us believe. The civic awakening we have experienced since January 2017 must become a sustained movement to reshape the future of this nation.

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder called for impeachment proceedings to begin if a report from Buzzfeed News saying President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign are true. “If true - and proof must be examined - Congress must begin impeachment proceedings,” Holder tweeted Friday. “[William] Barr must refer, at a minimum, the relevant portions of material discovered by Mueller. This is a potential inflection point,” he added, referring to Trump’s nominee for attorney general. Holder, who is reportedly considering a 2020 presidential run, has...
