    Eric Holder, former attorney general for President Obama, predicts that special counsel Robert Mueller already has an obstruction of justice case against President Trump and that he is stalling so he can make it as juicy as he can and bring it before a grand jury."Well I think that you technically have an obstruction of justice case that already exists," Holder said on "Real Time with Bill Maher" Friday. "I've known Bob Mueller for 20, 30 years. My guess is, he's just trying to make the case as good as he possibly can."The Mueller investigation has produced several indictments so...

    On Friday, former Attorney General Eric ‘Fast and Furious’ Holder demanded “unprincipled” House Republicans halt their investigations into FISA abuse and Spygate, warning the probes “must stop.” House Republicans held two hearings this week, demanding answers from Peter Strzok, FBI Director Wray and DAG Rosenstein about government surveillance during the 2016 election. GOP lawmakers grilled Peter Strzok Wednesday in a closed-door deposition. According to Chairman Goodlatte, FBI counsel instructed Strzok not to answer many of the questions. Wray and Rosenstein appeared on Capitol Hill Thursday for a Congressional hearing. House Republicans torched Rosenstein over his conflicts of interest in the...
  • FBI Agents Eager to Blow Whistle on Comey, Holder, Lynch

    According to a newly emerged report, ranking FBI officials are signaling plans to expose the corruption and criminal violations of the law that took place during Obama era. Sources told The Daily Caller several FBI agents want congressional subpoenas to testify about the agency’s problems. “There are agents all over this country who love the bureau and are sickened by [James] Comey’s behavior and [Andrew] McCabe and [Eric] Holder and [Loretta] Lynch and the thugs like [John] Brennan–who despise the fact that the bureau was used as a tool of political intelligence by the Obama administration thugs,” Joe DiGenova, a...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder publicly urged his former employees at the Justice Department to defy President Trump’s request for transparency and public disclosures of information related to the unprecedented spy operation launched in 2016 against the Trump campaign. More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry. His Congressional supporters want evidence connected to an ongoing investigation. Time for DOJ/FBI to simply say no-protect the institutions and time tested norms. — Eric Holder (@EricHolder) May 21, 2018 Holder’s insistence that the DOJ and FBI “protect the institutions” rather than carry out...

    Lookee...Lookee, the "Obama" birds (Brennan & Holder) of a feather try to cover their butts together. Don't take no genius to put two and two together. The game, the gambit, the dark acts to destroy the current POTUS, Donald J. Trump is over. It simply started and ended with Barack Hussein Obama. Obama, not the sharpest knife in the drawer, is not going to have sweet nice cozy legacy. In fact, he will little legacy at all. Scores of his Obamabots will go down with him. Game over...soon!!!

    The U.S. Justice Department has agreed to provide congressional investigators confidential records on a failed gun-trafficking operation during the Obama administration known as "Fast and Furious" that long has been criticized by Republican lawmakers. In a statement issued on Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department would hand over documents to the Republican-led House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that had been withheld by Democratic former President Barack Obama's administration. The agreement reached by Republican President Donald Trump's administration will effectively end a six-year long legal battle in which the committee had gone to federal...

    Tucked inside the inspector general’s report on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was the story of an August 2016 phone call from a high-ranking Justice Department official who Mr. McCabe thought was trying to shut down the FBI’s probe into the Clinton Foundation at a time when Hillary Clinton was running for president. The official was “very pissed off” at the FBI, the report says, and demanded to know why the FBI was still pursuing the Clinton Foundation when the Justice Department considered the case dormant. Former FBI officials said the fact that a call was made is even...

    If President Trump could hand select his 2020 Democratic opponent, he could do no better than former Obama attorney general Eric Holder, the only cabinet official held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents in the Fast and Furious gun running scandal. He is the poster child for the deep state corruption that festered under Obama and the politicization of both the DOJ and FBI. The former AG, who is arguably responsible for the negligent homicide of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, murdered by guns Holder and Obama funneled to Mexican drug lords, is in fact considering such a bid:...

    Elder Patriot – Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally announced an investigation into the use of federal money to fund radical leftwing advocacy groups. In making the announcement Sessions cited that at least six billion dollars was funneled into what was essentially a slush fund for Obama’s army of street activists. It’s almost a certainty that that amount is going grow significantly. The groups receiving the money included La Raza (now UnidosUS), NeighborWorks America, National Community Reinvestment Coalition, Operation Hope, Black Lives Matter, and a spin-off of Acorn The Mutual Housing Association of New York, among numerous other extremist groups....

    Despite advances the country has made since the Rev. Martin Luther King. Jr. was slain while fighting poverty and racism, “the age of bullies and bigots is not fully behind us,” former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. The remark was one of two thinly veiled references to President Donald Trump that Holder made during his appearance at a symposium on the first of three days of events commemorating the 50th anniversary of King’s assassination. […] Holder, the first black U.S. attorney general, spoke at a symposium sponsored by the University of Memphis and the museum. He was introduced...

    Obama nominated Michael Horowitz in July of 2011 to fill a vacancy left open by the resignation of Glenn Fine in February. Mr. Horowitz was confirmed in March the following year, and sworn in on April 16th, 2012. It was a nomination Obama would come to regret. Horowitz inherited a position that was effectively neutered in 2011 by Eric Holder's interpretation of § 6 of The Inspector General Act of 1978. (Authority of Inspector General) Holder and his legal team determined that the IG had to request information. This allowed Holder (and other agency heads) to bog down IG requests...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday night did not dismiss rumors he will run for president in 2020. He told The New York Times that if he ran for president, he would do so because he felt he could unify and advance the country. In a Q&A interview streamed online, Times reporter Alex Burns asked the former Obama attorney general, who has remained active in politics but noncommittal about running for office, to explain why he would or wouldn't enter the race in 2020.

    So much for the soft moderate blue wave of Democrats sweeping special elections these days. The real Democrats – the dinosaurs, the elitists, the detesters of deplorables, the Chicago politics-types, and the arrogant – are back, with none more obvious than Eric Holder, who offered this violent language for his political opponents. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports: "We have to be ready to, you know, not do anything inappropriate, not do anything improper, certainly not do anything unlawful," he said. "But to the extent that they want to have a fight, let's do it. You want to rumble, let's rumble. You...
