|Holder makes it clear that he's no fan of Republicans and some agitators in the media.|
Before I get into this story. I want to let you know that the Republicans in the House passed a bill repealing the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare). Making this an unprecedented 52nd time.
Attorney General Eric Holder is really getting tired of Republicans aiming at him. He's not going to take abuse from the likes of insurgent Louie Gohmert (R-TX). He's known to take it to the Republicans and conservative agitators. I am guessing that once he gets back into the private sector he may be hooking up on the cable news agitator shows. I hope he joins CNN so he can lay the hammer on them.
Gohmert and many other insurgent lawmakers in the House of Representatives have tried and failed at getting Holder removed from his post. They did a symbolic contempt of Congress vote against Holder back in 2012 over the ATF's handling of guns during a botched operation known as Fast and Furious.
Republicans in the senate are trying to delay confirmation of his successor Loretta Lynch, the first African American woman to be nominated for the position.
If Holder was politicizing the Justice Department he would have went after Mitch The Turtle (R-KY), Hal Rogers (R-KY), Don Young (R-AK), and insurgent Scott DesJarlais (R-TN). These are some of the country's most corrupt lawmakers.
The DOJ could have went after Republican lawmakers, governors and conservative agitators.
Holder himself held a news conference in which he started out by saying, “For the record, I am Eric Holder.”
From there, the attorney general went after Republican critics in possibly one of the last (if not the last) press conferences of his tenure leading the DOJ. He said it’s “a little irresponsible for people on the hill to say that policy differences that we have with them… can be characterized as political.”
Holder insisted that “there’s been no politicization of this Justice Department” and said such an accusation is “totally inconsistent with the facts.” The Bush DOJ was politicized when he got in, Holder said, but he’s managed to change it.
