Attorney General Eric Holder to resign
One thing that has to be said about the headline from AP; they told the truth, Holder brought all kinds of *change* to the Department of Justice. Sadly, none of it was good.
Attorney general brought change
WASHINGTON (AP) — Eric Holder, the nation’s first black attorney general and an unflinching champion of civil rights in enforcing the nation’s laws, is resigning after leading the Justice Department for six years under President Barack Obama.
The White House said Holder, the administration’s point man on the civil rights investigation into the police shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri, won’t leave until a replacement is confirmed, which means he will remain in office for months. SOURCE
Funny isn’t it? The Obama White House, his entire administration, is above the law in any and all happenings at this current time but the Attorney General is called *The Point Man* in a single shooting, one that he and Barack Hussein Obama have already pronounced as being the fault of the White Officer yet Holder, and through him, Obama, are held in no way responsible for the deaths that have taken place due to Fast and Furious.
From my Congressman, Pete Sessions, regarding the resignation of Eric Holder:
“I am glad to see that Eric Holder has finally decided to resign from his position as Attorney General. During his tenure, he covered up violations of the law, politicized the enforcement of the law, and stonewalled Congressional oversight time and time again. There’s a reason why Holder was the first ever US Attorney General in history to be held in both criminal and civil contempt. While most government officials whose careers are marred with scandal wish to clear their name, Holder’s decision to resign was the correct one. I sincerely hope that whomever the President nominates to be the next Attorney General has a greater respect for the rule of law.”
Pete Sessions is a lot nicer than I am, I have no such hope that Obama will seek to replace Holder with ANYONE that has greater respect for the law, that would go against every tenet of the Obama regime. The administration of Barack Hussein Obama is going down as the most *lawless* regime in American history and to have a person as Attorney General that truly respects the rule of law would force Obama to seek a new way of doing business.
Let me say this, and I am sure to hurt more than a few feelings in saying so, but Eric Holder has been the orchestration behind this lawlessness, behind every scandal that has come across the news desks, behind every scandal that the American public is aware of.
He has been allowed to get by with his lies and cover-ups because there is no one in the Senate or Congress has the power to go after him and his partners in crime; Hillary Clinton, Lois Lerner and Barack Hussein Obama, just to name a few.
Even the media knows that both Houses are cowering as this headline confirms; Holder Held in Contempt of Congress, Which Means Almost Nothing | WIRED.
Trey Gowdy and Darrell Issa have made bold speeches, asked the hard questions and demanded evidence be presented in their investigations. The legal department of the United States government, the Department of Justice, led by Eric Holder, has basically told Congress to go *screw* themselves.
The Inspector General of the Department of Justice cleared the Attorney General of any other wrongdoing with regard to Fast and Furious, stating that there was “no evidence” that Holder knew about the operation before early 2011.
Barack Hussein Obama’s administration declined to prosecute its own attorney general on the Contempt of Congress charge, citing executive privilege.
Executive privilege; that’s the only thing that I can think of that is keeping the Obama *Goon Squad* out of federal prison.
I’m going to close this post on a less than positive note; suppose Holder’s resignation, as is every other move made within the Obama regime, suppose it is a planned move designed to take Eric Holder even HIGHER into the political stratosphere?
Ponder this; one of the Supreme Court Justices suddenly becomes too ill or too mentally infirm to serve and decides to retire.
Would it be out of the realm of possibility for Obama to appoint Holder to a position on the SCOTUS?
Further, would it be possible for Harry Reid to push this through the Senate on a very *fast track* so as to accomplish the deed BEFORE the 2014 mid-terms, or failing that, to force a Holder nomination and approval through before a new Senate could be sworn in?
Attorney Generals come and Attorney Generals go, SCOTUS positions are for LIFE.
