Attorney General Holder cites "disturbing" information on gas prices

Washington (CNN) -- Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday "there are a couple of things that are disturbing" as the government launches its oil and gas fraud task force investigation into sharply rising gasoline prices.
In a meeting with reporters at the Justice Department, Holder declined to describe the "disturbing" matters, but made clear the broad investigation into potential fraud and other illegal activities would carefully comb industry information to search for wrongdoing.
Holder aides say they expect announcements next week. The task force is gearing up to look for price gouging, but will not yet include any criminal or civil charges.
"We are only in the very beginning phases of the investigation," Holder told reporters at the off-camera session in his office.
Holder's comments came as he was pressed about how his announcement of a task force would be different from similar announcements made by previous administrations when gas prices spiked, but that did not yield any prosecutions.

If Holder-butt wants “disturbing” he can 1) look in the mirror, or 2) look at the Obamaloon.
And, if one wants to know how low legal standards have fallen, just remember that Holder and the Obamaloon both hold degrees in law.
That’s like granting a degree in physics to Pelosi.
What’s disturbing is that Holder hasn’t been dismissed yet.
Heard on the radio today that Obama is saying he’s going to make the oil companies return some of their obscene profits.
Hmmm. . . . I have a name for this. . . they could call it the “Windfall Profits Tax”.
Like Yogi said, ‘it’s deja vu all over again.”
Maybe Steadman did an actual investigation for a change and found out who the real culprit is.
I could see that revelation as disturbing to him.
I think it’s “disturbing” that the Administration and all of the agencies underneath it are doing everything in their power(and more) to undermine us in using our own domestic sources.
This is like OJ Simpson vowing to find the real murderer of his wife.
I find that very disturbing.
Disturbing? Really? IMHO that pretty much sums up the Obama policies for the past two years.
Let me guess. The investigation will last until Nov. 2012.
We need to start hanging this dude around the Senate’s neck. He should have been hauled up before them a LONG time ago..But gee, who controls the Senate I wonder?
TARP funds were funneled by banks into secret Exxon accounts and they are pouring cash into the futures market before selling their offshore tanker's full of crude at $120.00 bbl
DOJ findings will lead Hussein The Magnificent to demand 20 Billion
yuan dollars from Exxon so Eric's people will get reparations for deys tanks ah gaz.
This will be recited by MSM teleprompter readers with totally deadpan strait faces.
Hey, Holder, you effing moron, the only disturbing thing that’s happened is that the dollar is tanking.
RACIST!! Don’t you realize it’s all for the children?!?!?!...
“Hey, Holder, you effing moron, the only disturbing thing thats happened is that the dollar is tanking.”
The dollar is going to be replaced by ObamaBucks; absolutely worthless just like their namesake.
that Incompetent Ass runs America?
