    Former Attorney General Eric Holder said late Saturday that the "Make America Great Again mindset" is flawed and "rooted in fear." “This sort of thinking, this 'Make America Great' mindset is not only flawed, it’s rooted in fear. And it favors an imagined past over a realistic future," Holder said while speaking at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner. Holder also questioned what time period people who want to "make America great again" would rewind to if given the chance, referring to President Trump's campaign slogan. ADVERTISEMENT “Certainly it was not when people were enslaved,” he said. “Certainly it was...

    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:...
