As Attorney General, Eric Holder continually found himself in trouble.
In fact, he was the only sitting Attorney General ever to be found in contempt of Congress.
Despite this, he made an insane claim against Donald Trump that you might not believe.
While speaking on MSNBC, former Attorney General Eric Holder stated that Donald Trump doesn’t believe in the rule of law.
Holder instead believes that Trump “believes in situational law and order.”
As reported by Breitbart:
“On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” former Attorney General Eric Holder stated President Trump doesn’t believe in the rule of law and takes a “situational” approach where he wants to treat his supporters better than everyone else.
Holder said the president “believes in situational law and order. And there is no way that I think you can resolve the tension that you have you just described [Trump’s comments on former White House staffer Rob Porter and the Cohen raid, compared with his stances on executing drug dealers and immigration]. He is not a believer in, at base, in the rule of law. He wants to make sure that those people who he likes, the people who support him are treated in one way, and those other people, whoever those other people are, are treated in a different way.””
Coming from Eric Holder, this is nuts.
During his time as Attorney General, if there was real law and order during the Obama administration, Eric Holder would have been in big trouble.
He was caught directly in the center of a gun-running scheme that led towards the death of at least one border patrol agent.
The scandal was popularly dubbed “Fast and Furious.”
And he did end up in hot water during the scandal.
In 2012 then-Attorney General Holder became the first Attorney General ever found in contempt of Congress.
He was found in contempt for refusing to turn over documents relating to the “Fast and Furious” gun smuggling scandal.
As reported by Politico:
“The House has voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over his failure to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal, the first time Congress has taken such a dramatic move against a sitting Cabinet official.
The vote was 255-67, with 17 Democrats voting in support of a criminal contempt resolution, which authorizes Republicans leaders to seek criminal charges against Holder. This Democratic support came despite a round of behind-the-scenes lobbying by senior White House and Justice officials – as well as pressure from party leaders – to support Holder.”
While he did find himself in some trouble, the trouble was due to his handling of evidence, not for the scandal itself.
His attack on Trump is surprising considering his history.
But this is clearly just Eric Holder prying for relevancy.
After leaving his post as Attorney General, he has been too toxic to continue in any government role.
Now he’s shrunken to nothing more than a left-wing political pundit.
