His litany of scandals and government abuses is miles long. His nearly eight years as Barack Obama’s legal firewall is unprecedented. As Attorney General he insulated the Obama administration from scandal after scandal including Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and IRS abuses, to name just a few. He promoted racial violence in the streets and used his federal authority to go after local police officers. His tenure as Attorney General left the United States less safe and far more divided.
And now he wants to be POTUS according to a report out today via Yahoo News
Eric Holder joins the anti-Trump resistance — and mulls a presidential campaign of his own
More than two years after leaving the Obama administration, former Attorney General Eric Holder is reentering the political fray. His goal: to lead the legal resistance to Donald Trump’s agenda — and perhaps even run against the president in 2020.
Seized by a sense of urgency to oppose Trump and restore what he regards as America’s best self, Holder is mulling a White House bid of his own, according to three sources who have spoken to him and are familiar with his thinking.
“Now is the time to be more visible,” Holder added. “Now is the time to be heard.”
God help us.
