Holder’s Memorial weekend vacation looks to be permanent. He resigns tomorrow.

Problem is if you get rid of Holder, Deval Patrick becomes the AG.

The House needs to start proceedings to remove Holder from office. Maybe start a House trial for treason.

“He resigns tommorow”

Why would this news cause him to resign?

Holder lied to Congress recently, saying he had “recused himself” from the probe.

Fox needs to start suing Obama Admin. Time to stop the Obama polishing and step up.

If FNC does not take action, then they have zero credibility as a news organization

If he signed off on it he can’t say “ I don’t recall”, right? Get him back before Congress.

Republicans should demand Holders resignation, if that doesn’t happen then I would start a campaign that the Obama underlyings are acting on behalf of Obama who hates FOX news and therefore his AG figures they are fair game just like his IRS figures Tea party patriots are Fari game...

Wouldn’t Massachusetts be without a governor if Deval Patrick became Attorney General? There was a thread about that a day or two ago—apparently the lieutenant governor is stepping down and there is no way to replace him. Besides, there are plenty of other black lawyers in the US so Obama would not have to pick Deval Patrick to be the next AG. That’s that woman in California he praised recently for her looks.

He would have to have done so, so this isn't exactly a revelation. But it is interesting that it wasn't stonewalled or firewalled off to a subordinate.

In any normal administration he'd be history, but in this one, who knows?

Interesting tidbit from the story...

It also said that Google was specifically instructed not to notify “the subscriber” -- Rosen -- that his emails were being seized.

They wouldn’t have done it without at least tacit approval form Holder and from Hussein.

Holder said he recused himself from the AP probe.

Apparently, he wanted FOX all to himself.

Problem is if you get rid of Holder, Deval Patrick becomes the AG.

Patrick would be slightly better, not because his political leanings are any less offensive, but, unlike Holder who is an aggressive Black Panther "Up the Revolution" racist, Patrick is more into just living well at the taxpayers expense.

“That’s that woman in California he praised recently for her looks.”

“That Woman would be Kamala Harris, California’s current AG, and former DA from San Francisco. She’s a “Holder’s Person,” and she loves queers, so she would fit right in! Our “gain” would be the country’s “loss.”
Then again, Jerry “the fairy” Brown’s wife is a former judge, and since she looks like a man, she’d be o.k. too except that she’s not black ( at least I don’t think she is but who knows, she IS married to Jerry).
