Now with the election of President Donald Trump, the American people are seeing visible evidence of political corruption and criminal acts aimed at stopping Trump, the true GOP maverick. And once he was elected, the Deep State members and their minions attempted to frame him using material bought and paid for by Trump’s opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Unfortunately for the American people the groundwork for the ouster of a Republican president was laid out during the eight-year regime of President Barack Obama and the creators of the Deep State including Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Directors Robert Mueller and James Comey, and other upper-echelon administrators.
A perfect example is the man who called himself “Barack Obama’s Wingman,” Attorney General Eric Holder.
Holder operated arguably the most politicized and ideological Department of Justice — which included the corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) — in recent history.
While the nation’s news media as usual downplayed the gun-smuggling revelations from the Operation Fast and Furious scandal the “gun-walking” program — approved by Holder and the DOJ — allegedly resulted in the needless deaths of many, including a federal law enforcement officer, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Quite simply, Holder was President Barack Obama’s Justice Department automaton who did more to politicize the DOJ, the FBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) than any previous attorneys general.
Fast and Furious was a “gun-running” operation in which guns were sold to Mexican drug cartels and others, apparently in hopes that the guns would end up at crime scenes. This reckless insanity seems to have resulted in, among other crimes, the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who was killed in a shootout with Mexican criminals in December 2010. Fast and Furious guns were found at the scene of his death.
And, with the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, it is no exaggeration that Holder and his agency brass had blood on their hands..
According to the foot-dragging news outlets such as CBS News, “Fast and Furious was a reckless DOJ/Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) “gun-running” scheme in which guns were sold to Mexican drug cartels and others, apparently in the hope that the guns would end up at crime scenes. Well, they did – and it appears that the guns were involved in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens, as well as the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who was killed in a shootout with Mexican criminals in December 2010.”
On December 5, 2012, CBS News reported that 17 DOJ and ATF officials had been faulted in an Inspector General investigation of the Fast and Furious scandal. But, the man at the top remains unscathed, even after becoming the first attorney general in history to be cited for criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to divulge documents about DOJ lies to Congress about Fast and Furious.
Every day that Eric Holder remained at the helm, the Department of Justice sunk further into the abyss of cronyism, corruption, and deceit. The Fast and Furious operation by itself should have resulted in Holder’s resignation, but it is the cover-up that had prompted serious calls for Holder’s ouster.
On May 3, 2011, in a House Judiciary Committee hearing chaired by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Holder testified: “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” Newly released documents show he was receiving weekly briefings on Fast and Furious as far back as July 5, 2010. It appears Holder lied to Congress. (Judicial Watch sued the DOJ and the ATF to obtain Fast and Furious records. The Judicial Watch investigation continues.)
“Unfortunately, when it comes to Holder corruption and abuse of office, Fast and Furious is just the tip of the iceberg,” notes Tom Fitton.
The DOJ continues to stonewall the release of information regarding Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s participation in Obamacare discussions when she served as Solicitor General. In addition to forcing Judicial Watch to file a lawsuit to obtain this information, Holder’s DOJ thumbed its nose at Congress by failing to release this material to the Senate Judiciary Committee during Kagan’s judicial confirmation hearing. Holder continues to personally resist requests for additional information on this controversy. Kagan’s role in these discussions is especially significant now that the U.S. Supreme Court has announced it will consider challenges to the constitutionality of Obamacare in Spring 2012.
New revelations emerged in 2011 about the DOJ’s Black Panther scandal. Judicial Watch uncovered evidence that the liberal special interest group National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) may have had an inappropriate amount of influence on the DOJ’s decision to drop its voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense. This comes on the heels of sworn testimony that the Civil Rights Division of the Holder DOJ makes enforcement decisions based upon race.
Most recently, Judicial Watch obtained shocking documents suggesting the Holder DOJ was conspiring with scandal-ridden Project Vote (President Obama’s former employer and ACORN front) to use the National Voter Registration Act to increase welfare voter registrations. One former ACORN employee (and current Project Vote Director of Advocacy), Estelle Rogers, is even helping to vet job candidates for the DOJ’s Voting Rights Division! (ACORN and Project Vote have a long record of voter registration fraud.)
Holder should have been fired if not indicted for any of the corrupt acts he committed as America’s top cop, but the news media and their puppetmasters in the Democratic Party are too busy “creating” a contempt of congress charge over obstruction of justice in a criminal case in which there was no proof of a crime.
