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$$ed SOB...no prior AG or Prez has ever come close to your level of incompetence OR treason. You are getting but a "smidgen" of what you deserve.
and never come back!
I had to add that ending.
Three more yrs of listening to that POS. Then next up The Hildabeast. Come on, Texas & others - succeed.
He isn’t a student of history. Maybe he needs some antidepressants.
“What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”
Which one said that there was a class of people he would not prosecute?
If I were a Republican on one of those oversight committees I would keep pushing his hot buttons until Holder’s racist head explodes. I would like to see him melt down completely.
"One day I'm going to occupy the offices of the Attorney General and it's going to be the Department of Just Us and Our People, buddy."
National Action Network in New York : N.A.N.N.Y.........................
Eric Holder even makes Janet Reno look good..........................
I thought he went to the convention to serve an arrest warrant to Sharptounge for $2 million in back taxes not paid.
Nixon who was the poster child for a law-abiding President next to O.
Hey Holder - Yo mama so ugly _________________________.
need to crank up the fire on Fast and Furious.
“As the dogs get closer the animal bares his teeth more often.”
Kinda like When youre taking flak, youre right over the target.
What attorney general has ever acted as you have Holder? You are a traitor, a felon and a racist and deserve worse than what you are getting by the pu$$!es on the Hill.
Maybe the morons on ABC's editorial staff should take note.
Of course,when I say "Congress" I really mean "House".
Holder Is a Basket Case When It Comes to Fast and Furious
He must not have been around when John Ashcroft was here.
They all are. They have so Overstepped into everything and I think people might have had enough...
I need more data, but one local school can't sell hot cookies anymore of a national brand because of the Kobi Beef Aficionado....
We are loosing Liberties at an alarming rate...
The Dictatorship feels that it is firmly entrenched now and above the law. They ARE the law and let no one forget it. Sayonara Constitution and Bill of Rights.
At this point I would give my right arm to have Janet and Bill back in charge! At LEAST they COULD NOT scream racism!!! WE THE PEOPLE
can NOT touch this gang of criminals due to the color of their skin!!!
THIS HAS BECOME TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE that these BASTARDS
can BLATANTLY break the law because of the color of their skin!!!
wonder how long it will be before the American people would be willing to
elect ANOTHER black president????
Fed-Up Publius911 and at least 115 million other American Citizens Rip 'Unprecedented, Criminal, Arrogant, Unwarranted, Ugly and Divisive' U.S. Department of Justice.
Fortunately, Publius911 and 115 other American Citizens don't exercise the destructive power OF one "Holder."
Why that should be tolerated is still being sorted out.
Moving right along...
“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?”
John Mitchell. Richard Nixon. Difference being - besides the obvious one - they were competent.
What AG has ever shown such disregard for the rule of law?
“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?”
Ummmmm....Bush? Alberto Gonzalez?
One of the first things Holder did was fire the guy who was investigating Obama supporter, Kevin Johnson mayor of Sacramento. He should have been investigated and removed at that time, but everyone in congress turned a blind eye.
A corrupt Holder and King Obama, lying trash.
In a more honest time in America, he would be.
Yeah, and he also said no other AG has ever had to put up with what’s he’s had to, the poor thing. Guess he never heard the names “Ashcroft,” “Gonzales” or John Mitchell.”
This $hit gets old.
Out of a sense of history Holder should occupy John Mitchell’s old office. The one with bars.
Has Mr. Holder turned over the subpoenaed documents yet? If not, then Mr. Gohmert was being kind in asking Mr. Holder if he doesn’t believe contempt of congress is important to him. An opportunity to make the situation right.
Cut the race baiting BS, provide the documents, or have Holder tried for contempt. PERIOD.
Who says history doesn't repeat itself? Especially under Holder!
FUEH, and the obama you rode in on.
How about John Mitchell and Alberto Gonzales for two.
Well it started with obama’s lock step, uncompromising democrats and the absolute power they had the first two years. Radical POS.
