Eric Holder bloviates

December 5, 2017

Former Attorney General Eric Holder is angrily denying President Trump’s assertion that the FBI’s reputation is “in tatters” after its leaders politicized it under Obama.  Holder tweeted that the FBI is “composed of the same dedicated men and women who have always worked there and who do a great, apolitical job. You’ll find integrity and honesty at FBI headquarters and not at 1600 Penn Ave right now.”

Two points: I think even Trump would agree that the dedicated men and women who have always worked there do a great, apolitical job.  That’s why it must have been so frustrating and infuriating for them to have to work under a group of leaders who shredded their agency’s reputation by acting in such nakedly partisan ways. 

Second, I hope you’ll excuse me if I refuse to accept a lecture on honesty and integrity from a man who was held in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with subpoenas by investigators into the Fast and Furious operation, in which the ATF allowed hundreds of taxpayer-provided guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug gangs who used them to commit countless crimes, kill at least 200 Mexicans and murder US Border Patrol Officer Brian Terry.   

Furthermore, Mr. Holder, if you’re thinking of going on to tell us that a Trump underling lying about something that wasn’t a crime is the worst presidential scandal in history, then please climb down off your high horse and let me tell you about another one. 

LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW.  I READ THEM!

    Wonder what the payoff was for Holder? O bummer really lined his wallet and the future with his actions. Holder has no respect for the rule of law. How did such a person get to that level or in this day and time of truths coming out, who or what did he have to do to get that position?

    Enjoy your letters Mike. I only have one question for you, When are we going to see these people being brought up on charges? If I remember correctly, wasn't aiding and abetting the enemy grounds for treason. Letting the terrorists go from Gitmo surely fits that category. It's time to stop sitting on our hands and start turning on the people who are truly the criminals in our Govt.
    thx

    In my profession, I have had the opportunity to work with many FBI Special Agents. Most recently while representing a non-profit victim. As with most organizations, the rank and file are just like the heroes of all law enforcement and our military: the cream of the crop. A few rotten apples make it through and some play the system while serving their own agenda and not the Oath they took to "protect and defend" the Constitution. Having just dealt with a DOJ "mini" task force of FBI and other federal agents, I have great faith in the Future of those agencies. However, we must exercise constant vigilance to prevent personal agendas from supplanting the sworn mission of all public servants.

    Mike, I look forward to your clear descriptions of the facts as they are. I read ypur posts daily. Thanks for being involved and courageous enough to engage in the opinion marketplace. That said, realistically the only people who trust Eric Holder to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,so help him God, are self-deceived alt-left die-hards. Mr. Holder has no credibility beyond his progressive echo-chamber.

    I think obummer was determined to destroy the USA. He promoted and even ordered unlawful actions. Agencies are in shambles due to his watch. He is shadowing Trump and doing whatever he can to continue to destroy USA. He along with clintons, holder, lynch, comey, meuller, learner (to mention a few of buddy thugs) need to be held accountable. Drain the swamp.

    Alabama has a choice between a man who 30 years ago may have done disgusting things to young girls and a man who eagerly supports killing baby girls in the process of being born. How is it that some, even some Republicans, can say that voting for the admitted supporter of killing babies is the morally superior choice?

    I follow you,Hannity,Carlson,Levin among others, and we know how bad they all want President Trump out and they are corrupt. Why can't we stop this, talking won't stop the bad that is going on. I voted for Trump and he's trying so hard, he loves America and I'll vote for him again, but he needs to be able to stay in office.

    We must find a way to discount all the lies about tax reform that it is only giving to the rich! We must tell the tax-reform advocates to speak out, noticeably and publicly, on TV, in newspapers, on the radio, and, yes, even on CNN and MSNBC!

    Just once I'd like to get up in the morning, turn on the tube, and hear nothing about former Presidents and everybody in their administrations. Then again if that ever happened I would know I had passed away!

    I am 88 years old. I have been a lover of my country all my life. I am angry, terrified and almost inconsolable about what has become of my country. The lies, the corruption and the immorality get worse every day. There seems to be no way to bring back the patriotism and decency that I grew up with in the 1040s. I don't deserve this !!!!

    I had to look up the definition of "bloviate" . And you are so right on both points. What would Eric Holder know about ethics, morals, honesty.

    Eric Holder has been away from the truth for so long he'd need a Garmin to find it again. He is no one, to lecture anyone, on honesty and integrity. It's going to take something other than words to BBQ the "deep state". I think you start at the top, and on an individual basis, covertly. Maybe a few missing persons reports will shake them up...

    Eric Holder is an anti Trump Leftie. I think the FREEDOM OF SPEACH needs to be modernized. It is being used for FREE CRIME. Slander is mostly what they do. Telling blatant lies. Running down our President . Publishing news without proof and Rioting. Unless we have a (dangerous, like Obama President) It should be a severe fine and 2nd offence jail time to run down OUR President. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    If the FBI and CIA were not politicized under obama; obama, holder, and kilary would be serving life without parole in GITMO for abuse of power and treason.

    Hello Gov. Huckabee. I thoroughly enjoy your commentaries and, more importantly, your loyalty to PRES. TRUMP.
    I AGREE. That witch hunt must be stopped. They are buying time and hoping to win more seats during midterm elections.
    America cannot afford the millions this scam “witch hunt” is costing us. Who can fire Mueller? Please let us know so that we, Trump Supporters, can go after that person to fire the complicit MUELLER.
    Again, thank you! And have a blessed and joyous Christmas season!

    Is there no end to the corruption of all these people associated with the Obama/Clinton machine? And why are they not being put under the magnifying glass like our President is? Every day it gets worse and worse.... So very disgusting. Holder, Mueller, FBI, Congress, Senate.. it's like who can you trust these days?
