Eric Holder had plenty of experience with cover-ups prior to his work on Fast and Furious
Coach is Right ^ | 12/21/2011 | Doug Book

“You need to know that Eric Holder…played a key role in covering up the torture-murder death of my brother, Kenneth Michael Trentadue.” (1)

This is what Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue wrote in December of 2008 to prospective incoming chairman of the Senate Justice Committee, Patrick Leahy.

The newly elected Barack Obama had made Holder his choice for Attorney General and Trentadue was going to do everything in his power to stop this shameful appointment from going forward.

Kenneth Trentadue was killed in Oklahoma City on August 21st of 1995, four months after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building. He had been taken into custody by the FBI and placed in an isolation cell at a federal facility in El Reno, Oklahoma.

The official government report on cause of death presented to Trentadue’s family stated that Kenneth had hanged himself in his cell.

But massive bruises and lacerations all over his body compelled even the Oklahoma City medical examiner to state “very likely he was murdered.” (2)

Unable to get satisfactory information from government officials on what had happened to his brother, in 1997 Jesse Trentadue filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit against the Department of Justice.

In it, Trentadue made the extraordinary claim that the Department had “…[hidden] and destroyed evidence that would have exposed my brother’s murderers.” (1)

As a result of that lawsuit, in 2001 the Trentadue family was awarded $1.1 million and the federal judge indeed later ruled that “…the FBI had lied in court…and destroyed evidence.” (3)

Using emails and handwritten notes acquired in that lawsuit, Trentadue demonstrated in his correspondence to Patrick Leahy that then Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder had engineered a scheme to sidetrack any investigation into his brother’s death in order to “…deflect congressional oversight and media...

Yep, I remember that one. Clintbilly was busy manipulating the story of what happened at OKC (it was Rush Limbaugh’s fault, for inciting the Christian Militias), and he didn’t want any inconvenient witnesses who might reveal the real truth.

Janet Reno wasn’t the brightest bulb in the pack, so the many of the really dirty jobs were delegated to Holder.

1.. Marc Rich pardon. Again during the Clinton administration when Holder was Deputy AG, He told Congress he didn’t read the memos about giving this convicted felon and Dem contributor a pardon. Does this “I read nothing” defense sound familiar?

2. Google Ira Magaziner. He was the point man for the Hillarycare WH operation. During a lawsuit regarding violations of Fed law during the Hillarycare deliberations, a Federal judge, Royce Lamberth, sent a referral to the DOJ charging that Magaziner and other WH aides appeared to have committed perjury in his court. Holder refused to take any action. The Judge, frustrated by the non-action, levied sanctions against the US government in the form of a maximum $250,000 fine.

"Eric Holder"

The USA is a banana republic and we are powerless - go on - try and get this guy charged with anything. He will skate. Try and get him held accountable for anything - you will fail.

Try and get the GOP to promise to investigate Holder after the 2012 election - Good Luck with that.

There is also evidence indicating Holder covered up the murder of Clinton’s Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown.
