Eric Holder For Prison, Not President
Flopping Aces ^ | 04-23-18 | Daniel John Sobieski

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:

Former Attorney General Eric Holder let the cat out of the bag Tuesday night during a visit to the very friendly confines of MSNBC, acknowledging he is “thinking” about a 2020 presidential run to challenge President Donald Trump.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes threw out the possibility of Holder running for the White House, hoping his guest would bite and he did just that — whether this was rehearsed beforehand or not is up to you to decide.

“I’m not sure I’ll get the most honest answer from you,” Hayes said to Holder, before turning to MSNBC contributor Matt Miller, who was Holder’s spokesperson in office.

“Is he running for president. Is Eric Holder running?” he asked.

Miller joked about wanting to know if he will have to quit his job and move to Iowa, prompting Holder to reply if Miller “will promise to be my press secretary, I might consider it.”

“You are considering it,” Hayes asked.

“I’m thinking about it, but I am focusing on the work I’m doing with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee trying to deal with gerrymandering,” Holder said.

Run, Eric, run. Go ahead, make our day. Rumors of a Holder bid were not diminished by the new he is headed for New Hampshire to attend an event considered a must for presidential contenders:
Speculation about a potential presidential run for former Attorney General Eric Holder has heated up after he announced he would speak at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics’ annual “Politics & Eggs,” an event that many former candidates once attended.

A press release from Holder’s officer announced Wednesday that on June 1, the Obama administration official would be the featured guest speaker at the annual breakfast event.

According to the press release, “the Politics & Eggs series is a forum for presidential candidates, political leaders, and other political analysts and commentators as they visit New Hampshire, home of the nation's first presidential primaries.”

We could once again witness the spectacle of a progressive liberal, this time the AG of the most opaque administration in history, invoking racism to criticism of his policies and documented criminality, a role he filled well in defense of President Obama:
In an interview with the New York Times published over the weekend, Holder accused those who want to know who authorized the Fast and Furious gun-running operation of being racially motivated.

The 60 congressmen, two senators, two sitting governors, and all the major presidential candidates who have openly called for Holder's resignation are not concerned in his view about how two U.S. agents and hundreds of Mexicans got killed with U.S. guns.

No, according to Holder, they are motivated by the color of Holder's and President Obama's skin….

"This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him," Holder said, according to the Times. "Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we're both African-American."

It was once said that politics ws the last refuge of scoundrels. Obama and Holder changed that to charges of racism. But playing the race card doesn’t cover up their crimes. President Barack Hussein Obama and then-Attorney General Eric Holder conceived and ran a gun-running operation called Fast and Furious which resulted in the deaths of U.S. agents Jaime Zapata and Brian Terry. ATF Special Agent John Dodson attempted to spread the truth on the Obama administration’s effort to supply Mexican drug lords with semiautomatic weapons:

I want Anthony Weiner to run for President as a Democrat and end up running with Eric Holder on the Weiner-Holder ticket.

The deaths of those murdered with those guns would only be "negligent homicide" if Holder and Obola had authorized their smuggling into Mexico as a part of a genuinely blundered good faith law enforcement operation against the drug cartels.

Not so, IMHO. Those guns were deliberately smuggled to the cartels with the specific intent that they be used to commit murder and mayhem, thereby undermining US support for the 2d Amendment. That means Terry's death was first or second degree murder, a crime of which Holder and Obola are guilty. After all, why else wouldn't they release the subpoenaed records???

Prosecution Holder for Fast and Furious. He is a criminal that hates white people.

That will be a good starting point to unravel everything.

“due to the nature of our relationship...”

Was he implying that he and Obama had a sexual relationship?
