Posted on 04/10/2014 9:44:56 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
A fed-up Attorney General Eric Holder is accusing congressional critics of launching "unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive" attacks on him and the Obama administration.
During a speech to the National Action Network in New truthYork on Wednesday lauding the organization's effort to advance racial equality, a heated Holder went a little off-script.
"Forget about me [specifically]. Look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee," Holder told the crowd. "What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?"
The remarks drew loud applause from the crowd. al.
Holder has had a tense relationship with several Republican lawmakers since the Republican-led House held him in contempt of Congress two years ago for failing to turn over certain documents tied to the Fast and Furious scandal involving botched firearms sting operations despite a congressional subpoena seeking those documents.
In asking Holder on Tuesday about the Justice Department's refusal to turn over documents in an unrelated terrorism case, Gohmert again raised the issue of contempt, saying, "I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight."
A visibly upset Holder, leaning back in his chair, shot back, "You don't want to go there, buddy. You don't want to go there, OK?"

He should be in jail
Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.
Did I just hear Eric Holder calling someone else ‘divisive’?
hey RICKY we’re GOING THERE we’re Going There!!!
Shove it, Holder.
Just bask in the fact that you are still in office as the most inept, fellonious, and just plain stupid AG that ever existed in the multitude of parallel multiverses.
That’s not racial.
It’s just a plain fact, Obamahole.
Yeah, it’s a bitch, Eric. So quit already. Head for K St. or private practice, make a bundle, buy a yacht.
Don’t go away mad - just go away.
As the dogs get closer the animal bares his teeth more often. Holder shouldn’t be allowed to breathe the air in the US. The race baiting criminal white hating Attorney General of the US needs to get the justice that he richly deserves.
Obey the law and be found not so contemptible.
When any of Obama’s Amish friends get in trouble, they run home to mommy (i.e. racism)
Holder knows he is in trouble.
He is up to his ears in the IRS - voter fraud scandal and needs OFA to cover his tracks.
Waaaaaa waaaaaa! Cry me a river you punk-a$$ed SOB...no prior AG or Prez has ever come close to your level of incompetence OR treason. You are getting but a "smidgen" of what you deserve.
and never come back!
I had to add that ending.
Three more yrs of listening to that POS. Then next up The Hildabeast. Come on, Texas & others - succeed.
He isn’t a student of history. Maybe he needs some antidepressants.
“What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”
Which one said that there was a class of people he would not prosecute?
If I were a Republican on one of those oversight committees I would keep pushing his hot buttons until Holder’s racist head explodes. I would like to see him melt down completely.
"One day I'm going to occupy the offices of the Attorney General and it's going to be the Department of Just Us and Our People, buddy."
