“The attorney general of the United States is the people’s lawyer, not the president’s lawyer,” former Attorney General Eric Holder said during a speech in one of the most violent and dangerous cities in America: Chicago. “You have a responsibility to run the Justice Department in a way that is not political,” said Holder, who called himself President Barack Obama’s “wingman.”
Although changing his tune, during the Obama years Holder was indeed “president’s wingman” and basically served as his lawyer. “Holder was held in contempt of Congress for not surrendering documents on the Fast and Furious scandal. This involved some 2,000 marked guns that Holder and Obama leeched into Mexico. They hoped that these weapons would lead them to drug cartels south of the border,” said Delroy Murdock in his column for Fox News.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder — in the tradition of former officeholders from the Democratic Party — has been enormously vocal about his hatred for President Donald Trump as have been the Democratic Party and their news media subsidiary. Holder’s latest attack — joining former Communist Party member, Saudi Arabian Wahabbi Muslim convert, and CIA director John Brennan — against Trump is the presidential ordering of the release of documents connected to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act surveillance warrants that led to the creation of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel witch hunt.
The dangerous abuse of executive power to cover up the suspected criminal activity of Eric Holder in his self-serving refusal to turn over unredacted documents to Congress that provided information in an illegal gun-running scheme to Mexican Cartels was far more dangerous. It was deadly dangerous.
A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent, Mexican nationals, including a beauty queen and local police chiefs, lost their lives, along with victims in Paris during a terrorist attack in that criminal activity under Holder’s Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives known as “Operation Fast & Furious. And though he never faced real justice, House lawmakers held him in contempt of Congress. In fact, one of the Americans killed was a U.S. Border Patrol agent named Brian Terry.
Holder’s Service as Obama’s Spy
In 2013, Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama-politicized Justice Department allegedly spied on print and broadcast journalists. The DOJ hacked into about 20 Associated Press telephone lines as well as the phone records and Gmail and Yahoo e-mails of James Rosen, formerly with Fox News Channel.
The Holder-run DOJ also allegedly hacked into CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson Internet account and harassed her while she covered both Fast & Furious and Benghazi scandals. The Obama-Holder Justice Department also tracked Rosen’s movements at the State Department, which he then covered. DOJ even seized the phone records of Rosen’s parents in Staten Island, New York.
The tragic events in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, where a terrorist attack claimed the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, may have had more to do with Hillary’s election day loss than the media projected. Many Americans were left to wonder why CIA agents who could have helped were told to “stand down” when the Benghazi Consulate in Libya was attacked. Also, a former U.S. Marine major says that everyone involved in the public relations aspects of the Benghazi massacre used every deception available including the Democrats’ most popular politician and de facto leader Hillary Rodham Clinton.
For example, released documents revealed that the Obama White House staff spent their time linking the terror attack to a YouTube video while Americans lay dead or dying in a compound that was located in a dangerous part of the world with minimal security, according to the documents that should outrage all true Americans.
“The Obama administration first thought wasn’t a rescue plan or a retaliation but to contact YouTube after the initial reports of the attack,” said counterterrorism analyst Brian Hanratty. “They did that before they bothered to even recover the bodies of the Americans,” said the former police commander.
The documents also show that the Obama minions were looking at a video – The “Pastor Jon” video by Oregon-based Pastor Jon Courson — entitled God vs. Allah, a low-key exposition of the Biblical book of Kings. “These documents show the Obama White House rushed to tie yet another video to the Benghazi attack, even before Ambassador Stevens was accounted for. The Obama White House, evidently, was confused as to what actually happened.”
