In a response to Mitt Romney, former Attorney General Eric Holder tweeted this is not about principle and that progressives need to be comfortable with the acquisition-and use-of power to create systems reflecting the interests of the people:
Twitter Eric Holder @EricHolder This is not about principle-its always been about power. Progressives need to be comfortable with the acquisition-and use-of power. We will be faced with serious questions after the election; we must use the power we have to create systems reflecting the interests of the people.
We should believe them when they say this:

Although Joe Biden is trying to take a more measured tone before the election:

As is Dianne Feinstein:

I think the filibuster serves a purpose. It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's part of the Senate that differentiates itself. ht @DanielPFlatley 5:07 PM · Sep 21, 2020
But moderation isnt their plan:
Howard Dean @GovHowardDean This was not true yesterday. It will be when we take power. The entire court selection process has been corrupted and the whole system needs to be torn down and start from scratch.
We are at the twilight of civil society and peaceful transitions of power. Plan and prepare accordingly.
For your interest.
Lol! When did Holder ever have principals?
Eric Holder is a ‘small c’ communist.
Gun runner Holder has no principles.
Eric, “I will not prosecute my people” holder?
This is not about principles
Hes got that right.
The purpose of the Democrat Party is to elect liars and thieves to public office so that they have access to the public treasuries in order to loot them.
Let’s hope Obama’s Wing Man gets shot down in flames.
When in the entire history of Progressivism have they not been?
We are not going to get out of this mess by civil society or corrupt legal means. The future looks like a series of bad choices.
Elementary school, middle school, and high school?...
Vladimir Illych Holder.
GOP has leadership finally willing to wield its power, watch how they panic.
I wouldn’t generally say this concerning political people I
simply disagree with on policy, but this guy is as dangerous
as most insiders of the worst regimes in world history.
These folks get a pass as if they were Mother Teresa.
The administration this man was a part of acquired power and inflicted bad economics and inexcusably bad foreign policy on this country. We KNOW they have no problem acquiring and using power, the problem is that their ideas sound good (sometimes) but execute really REALLY badly.
its already begun
thats the problem
people here and elsewhere don’t understand its started
it needs to be dealt with NOW before they have more time
Honesty. I’m genuinely surprised.
Almost sounds like a quote for Atlas Shrugged...
