Buh-Bye: Most Corrupt Attorney General In American History Stepping Down

download
I was just getting used to referring him as “Eric (Why Is This Man Still Our Attorney General) Holder” and now this happens. But it’s no surprise. He ‘s been talking about resigning for awhile.
The race is now on for Obama to nominate a replacement and have him or her (probably her) confirmed before the Republican Senate convenes in January.
That of course is the reason for the timing of this announcement. The Regime is admitting that the Republicans are going to win the majority in the Senate in the midterm elections. And The Firewall must be upheld.
Obama must nominate someone as nauseatingly corrupt as Holder is to take his place – someone who will keep the heat off of the criminal activities of the Regime.
I think it will be the corrupt CA Attorney General Kamala Harris – which is very bad news that I will write about when I have more time.
I wrote about Holder’s corrupt, scandal-ridden tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement official at the Conversation:

Holder, who should have resigned in disgrace after the Fast and Furious scandal erupted in the Spring of 2011, soldiered on even after he was held in contempt by congress in the summer of 2012.

His tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement officer will be remembered as one marked by scandal, corruption, hyper-politicization, opposition to 2nd Amendment rights, hostility toward conservatives, and an abysmal batting average in the courts.

Under Holder, the DOJ began treating terrorists as criminal defendants rather than enemy combatants, and purged references to “radical Islam” in FBI training materials.

His first scandal erupted when the DOJ dropped the New Black Panther voter intimidation case in May of 2009, (described by Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation I’ve ever seen.”)

Under Holder, the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ became hyper-politicized sewer that engaged in politicized hiring practices in the career civil service ranks.

In June 2008, Holder admitted to the American Constitution Society (an organization started as a liberal counterweight to the Federalist Society) that the Justice Department was “going to be looking for people who share our values.”

Dinesh D’Souza Reacts To His Community Confinement Sentence: “I’ve Got A Big Smile On My Face…”

Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced on Tuesday to five years of probation, spending eight months of it in a community confinement center, after pleading guilty to a campaign finance law violation. Prosecutors were seeking a 10-16 month prison sentence in what may considered an unequal application of the law. Most often, violators of this type are simply fined.

But the conservative author and filmmaker has written a series of critical books and movies about Obama. Eric (why is this man still Attorney General)  Holder has obviously taken note.

D’Souza was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan – a Clinton appointee.

Via Newsmax:

He was also given a $30,000 fine and ordered to do one day of community service a week during his probation.

The Smoking Gun website reported that for the first eight months of his probation term, D’Souza will do his community service in a “community confinement center” in San Diego. He will also have to perform one day per week of community service during his probation term. Typically, community service can include tasks like working with the homeless or teaching inmates, though no details were given Tuesday.

He discussed his sentence on the Kelly File with Megyn Kelly, Tuesday night, saying, “I’ve got a big smile on my face and I think I have for several hours and I can’t wipe it off because this was really an effort to put me out of business. The government was trying to lock me up for 10-15 months and a federal judge said, no.”

Eric (Why is this man still Atty. General?) Holder Still Refusing To Hand Over Fast And Furious Docs

Eric-Holder-AG

For some inexplicable reason, Eric (Why is this man still Atty General?) Holder doesn’t want to hand over a detailed list of the thousands of documents being withheld from Congress under Obama’s Executive Privilege claim.

A federal Judge ordered the DOJ to produce the “Vaughn list” back in July in response to a Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit.  A month later, a federal judge ordered the DOJ to turn over “a privilege log of withheld documents to the House Oversight Committee.” Both requests are supposed to be completed by October 1, but get this – Eric (why is this man still Atty Gen?) Holder is stonewalling da court.

You would almost think he has something to hide.

Via POLITICO

Attorney General Eric Holder is again asking a federal court to delay the transfer of disputed documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious to a House committee.

In a new court filing Monday night, Justice Department lawyers asked U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson not to require Holder to turn over any of the roughly 64,000 pages of documents to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee until after her rulings can be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

“The Department respectfully submits that it would be preferable for the parties, this Court, and the D.C. Circuit — if an appeal were taken — to have any injunctive order await the conclusion of the district court litigation to allow for orderly and complete appellate proceedings,” DOJ lawyers wrote.

Jackson has previously denied DOJ permission to file an immediate appeal, although lawyers for Holder indicated in the new filing (posted here) that they may do so anyway. Any appeal is likely to take months and perhaps more than a year to resolve. If that process does not begin until Jackson rules definitively on the the executive privilege claim President Barack Obama has made for many of the documents, the timeline for the case being resolved could begin to approach the end of the Obama administration.

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich says, “how convenient that the appeals process will bump right up against the end of Obama’s, and therefore Holder’s, time in office.

This tactic and strategy has been used by Holder since the beginning to run out the clock until a new administration comes into office and dumps the case.

Regardless, Holder is still required to produce a list of documents by October 1, which will give us significant insight into the kind of documents the Department of Justice is trying so desperately to hide.

It would be nice if that now archaic concept – “rule of law” were still in force in this country. But as you may have guessed – as far as the ruling class is concerned, that is quite a thing of the past. Every technique the Obama  regime has used to get away with scandal after scandal will be used by every administration to succeed him – and when the fundamental transformation is complete -  we’re most of the way there –  those administrations will be Social Democrat  because they will have achieved their long sought after permanent majority. I guess congratulations are in order before they take us over the cliff.

Holder Flack Accidentally Calls Issa Staff For Help Spinning IRS Scandal.

Whoopsie-do! He meant to call Cummings’ staff.

A DOJ flack caught trying to collude with Dems on the Oversight and Reform Committee? Oh my goodness, wait til Eric (Why is this man still our Atty. General?) Holder hears about this!11!!

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa’s staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder.

The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine. Issa believes the call was intended to be made to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cumming’s staff, the ranking member on the oversight panel, the letter said.

According to the letter, Fallon – who is not named in the letter but confirmed he made the call – asked if the aides could release the IRS scandal documents to “selected reporters” to give Fallon an “opportunity to comment publicly on it.”

Fallon explained to Issa aides that the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs had not permitted him to release the documents to the public and he wanted to get ahead of the story “before the Majority” – meaning Issa – could share it, according to the letter.

This is a breitbart scoop, so you can read the rest, there. But talk about awkward. Now, they’re stuck pushing Pee-Wee Hermanesqe spin to explain the snafu. (I meant to do that!)

No one should be surprised to see Cummings working with the Regime — not to provide oversight (which is his job) but to do the exact opposite —  help them with their cover ups and cover stories.

As far as the IRS scandal goes – Cummings is  a partner in crime.

You may remember that back in April it was revealed that  Lois Lerner had funneled Rep. Cummings Info About True The Vote.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) released emails Wednesday afternoon showing that Lois Lerner coordinated with Rep. Elijah Cummings and committee Democrats multiple times between 2012 and 2013,  providing them information they requested about True the Vote, the 501(c)(4) voter integrity organization that was singled out for IRS scrutiny (not to mention FBI, ATF,  OSHA and  EPA-affiliated TCEQ scrutiny.)

Via Eliana Johnson NRO: 

In a letter signed by his five subcommittee chairmen, Issa raised the possibility that Cummings coordinated with the IRS, “surreptitiously” contacting the agency to request information about True the Vote.

E-mails unearthed in the course of Issa’s investigation into the IRS’s inappropriate targeting of right-leaning groups show that in January 2013, a member of Cummings’s staff contacted the IRS asking for any publicly available information on True the Vote. The matter was discussed by IRS officials that included Lois Lerner, the former exempt-organizations chief who retired in the wake of the targeting scandal. One of Lerner’s deputies, Holly Paz, subsequently sent the organization’s 990 forms to Cummings and his staff — not an illegal disclosure of taxpayer information, though sources say the exchange of such information was not routine.

Eric (Why Is This Man Still Our Atty Gen?) Holder Announces Investigation of Ferguson Police Dept

Via Gateway Pundit, nothing really of note, here.

I think we already knew that (this being a mid-term election year and all) the most corrupt, race-baiting, and hyper-political Attorney General in American history, would jump at the chance to slap the race card down on the entire police department in Ferguson, Mo.

There was a triple (black on white) murder in Kansas City, this week – not that the Rev. Al, Jesse Jackson or Eric (why is this man still our Atty Gen?) Holder give a flip. The perp was wearing a dark hoodie, incidentally.

Then there’s that black cop shooting of an unarmed white man (thin guy, too – not a 300 lb behemoth)  that happened in Utah two days after the Michael Brown shooting.  But then, you probably haven’t heard about that one because it doesn’t fulfill a favored media (race-baiting, election year) narrative.

You will not be surprised to hear that the crack team of race-baiting radicals Eric (why is this man still our Attorney General?) Holder sent to Ferguson, have found enough evidence of “concerns”, “mistrust”, and  “lack of diversity” that a civil rights investigation of the Ferguson Police Department by the Department of Justice is apparently warranted.

Like I said, nothing really all that  surprising, here. I just wanted to try out my new moniker for Eric (why is this man still our Attorney General?) Holder.

 

 

Holder Decries Release Of “Sensitive Information” In Michael Brown Case (Video)

And by “sensitive information”, he  means – the liqueur store robbery surveillance video – the suppression of which allowed the false “gentle giant” narrative to take hold.

This Attorney General is a piece of work, isn’t he?

Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement Monday following his briefing of President Obama on the latest developments in the federal civil rights investigation in Ferguson, Missouri:

“As I informed the President this afternoon, the full resources of the Department of Justice are being committed to our federal civil rights investigation into the death of Michael Brown.

“During the day today, more than 40 FBI agents continued their canvassing of the neighborhood where Michael Brown was shot. As a result of this investigative work, several new interviews have already been conducted.

“Moreover, at my direction, an additional medical examination is being performed on the body of Michael Brown. This autopsy is being performed today by one of the most experienced medical examiners in the United States military. I am confident this additional autopsy will be thorough and aid in our investigation.

“In addition to updating the President on these developments, I informed him of my plan to personally travel to Ferguson Wednesday. I intend to meet with FBI investigators, and prosecutors on the ground from the Civil Rights Division and U.S. Attorney’s Office officials about the ongoing investigation.

“I realize there is tremendous interest in the facts of the incident that led to Michael Brown’s death, but I ask for the public’s patience as we conduct this investigation. The selective release of sensitive information that we have seen in this case so far is troubling to me. No matter how others pursue their own separate inquiries, the Justice Department is resolved to preserve the integrity of its investigation. This is a critical step in restoring trust between law enforcement and the community, not just in Ferguson, but beyond.

On Monday night’s “Kelly File”, Megyn Kelly had on Tom Dupree, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General during the Bush administration, to comment on Holder’s handling of the case.

He said, “it’s interesting that Holder has so personally injected himself into this case – not only in trying to suppress the release of this video – but also in criticizing it – it’s  very carefully camouflaged criticism – but it’s criticism nonetheless. In Holder’s view, the police shouldn’t have released that videotape.”

Kelly asked him what he thought about the fact that Holder has sent FIFTY FBI agents to investigate “this one case.”

Dupree said, “it’s extraordinary Megyn. There’s no other word for it – I’ve never seen anything like this. A single victim – fifty FBI agents flying in from Washington and other destinations – all coming to interview people within a very small neighborhood.” He added, “I think they want to insulate themselves from any possible criticism that they haven’t put all the resourses of the Federal Government and the DOJ on the field to – in their view – bring the perpetrator to justice.”

The Hayride: Obama And The Dems Are Counting On Pat Buchanan To Be Wrong

Video: Joe diGenova Unleashes Angry Torrent Against “Churlish,” “Childish,” “Unhinged” Eric Holder

Former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova, a frequent guest on  WMAL in Washington, D.C., had some choice words for Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday.   Asked about Holder’s recent contention that there is “racial animus” in much of the opposition to Barack Obama and himself, diGenova didn’t hold back.

WMAL’s Larry O’Conner played audio from the ABC News interview Sunday of Holder asserting, ”There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me that is directed at me, directed at the president. People talk about taking their country back. I can’t look into peoples’ hearts, look into peoples’ minds, but it seems to me that this president has been treated differently than others.”

DiGenova let loose this blistering torrent of abuse:

His comments are beneath his office. Eric Holder has become unhinged. These comments are stupid, they’re silly, they’re churlish, they’re childish, they’re sophomoric. This is faculty lounge crap. The president of the United States and the attorney general are both black. Is it not surprising to them that this happened in the United States of America? That the president, a black president, has been elected twice by the American people? That the attorney general has been around for two terms?

This is not a racist country.

What is going on here is because of the incompetence of this administration and particularly this president (and may I say, regrettably, the attorney general himself) they have politicized every aspect of government to the core. And when people react to it legitimately, claiming constitutional violations the attorney general says something like this?

I mean what he is doing is demonstrating why he should not be the attorney general any longer. This is an embarrassment. You wouldn’t hear any other Attorney General talk like this. White, Black, Green, Yellow, Chinese, Hispanic, nobody would talk like this. This is basically stupid. I mean its mind-boggling that the Attorney General could sit there with a major news network, being interviewed by a black correspondent by the way who’s a wonderful reporter, and say things like this.

I mean when you listen to his voice, you hear this kind of trembling doubt in his own mind about whether or not he should say it, and yet he has no governance, he says it anyway.

This really is stupid stuff.

Hey, tell us how you really feel, Joe.

Earlier in the interview, diGenova was asked what he thinks about the situation in Nebraska, where the Governor is fuming because the Regime refuses to tell him where they’re dumping the illegal immigrant minors.

DiGenova recommended that the governor file a lawsuit against the president – for failure to inform them.  “Whether or not there’s a legal responsibility to do so, there’s a political and moral  responsibility for reasons of health care, education, budget, law enforcement,” he said.

Asked if he thought the governor would prevail in the lawsuit, diGenova answered that he had no idea, adding, “but you know what? There’s nothing better than embarrassing this president, because he can’t stand it.”

diGenova came out against impeachment later on in the interview, saying the president is “untouchable.”

“Just leave him alone, let him suffer in his own juices,” diGenova said. “Sarah Palin is out of her mind. It may make her feel good, but we’re not going to impeach the president and we don’t want to. We want him left around as an issue.”

He recommended impeachment for others in the administration like John Koskinen.
