You may remember Former AG Eric Holder from such things as Operation Fast and Furious, from saying things like, “when they go low we kick ’em” and from saying that he was Obama’s “wingman.”
That guy just wrote an op-ed for the WaPo in which he slams AG Barr as being “unfit to lead the Justice Department” because Barr is “running political interference for Donald Trump.”
Are. You. Freaking. Kidding. Me. With. This. Crap.
What’s next – Holder’s gonna whine about how Barr was handpicked by President Trump? Guess what, you jacka$$. EVERY ATTORNEY GENERAL IS HANDPICKED BY THE SITTING PRESIDENT. Just like Obama picked you, and made you his wingman.
“Barr has made a series of public statements and taken actions that are so plainly ideological, so nakedly partisan and so deeply inappropriate for America’s chief law enforcement official that they demand a response from someone who held the same office.”
He said that UNIRONICALLY, you guys. Without a speck of self-awareness.
The funniest line from his piece was this one: “As a former U.S. attorney general, I am reluctant to publicly criticize my successors.”
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! Suuuuure, you’re reluctant. Sure you are.
Holder went on to say that it was wrong for Barr to comment on the Durham investigation since that investigation is ongoing. But Barr only commented on it to reiterate DURHAM’s own comment – which was that there was disagreement with the conclusion of the IG report. And that was a really important point to make, given that idiots like James Comey took to social media to set a completely false narrative about what was actually IN the IG report, and then the MSM ran with that false narrative. Thank GOD for Barr and Durham for doing the right thing and making sure to inject some REALITY into the conversation.
Check out Holder’s WaPo ending:
‘The American people deserve an attorney general who serves their interests, leads the Justice Department with integrity and can be entrusted to pursue the facts and the law, even — and especially — when they are politically inconvenient and inconsistent with the personal interests of the president who appointed him. William Barr has proved he is incapable of serving as such an attorney general. He is unfit to lead the Justice Department.’
Where were you, Eric Holder, when you prevented the mastermind of 9/11 from getting thrown onto death row where he belongs? Where were you when you decided that those terrorists deserved a day in court instead of being treated as the scumbag enemy combatants that they clearly were? Where were you when the Black Panthers engaged in voter intimidation in Philadelphia? Where were you when Fast and Furious completely fell apart and Brian Terry was killed? What kind of AG were you when you couldn’t even say the WORDS “radical Islam” with respect to terrorist attacks on our country? What kind of AG were you when you chalked up any criticism you faced to your critics being racist?
I could go on, but you get the idea. Eric Holder has ZERO CREDIBILITY, and for him to suggest that AG Barr is unfit is positively LAUGHABLE.
