If congress actually does "cite" Eric Holder for contempt, I'm convinced that he'll frame the citation and hang it on its wall like a diploma. Surely he'll be proud of it. He is obviously filled with contempt. He has contempt for Congress, the Constitution, American values, the American voter, and any other institution that by law or tradition, restrains his power and the power of the executive.
The source of this citation is the "Gunrunner" scandal where the ATF broke the law and shipped hundreds (maybe thousands) of guns to Mexico illegally through criminal channels to be used in that country's drug wars. The hope was that progressives could use evidence of those guns abroad to achieve a political goal in gun regulation. And when it all blew up in their faces and a Border patrolman ended up dead, it was Holder who seems to have done his best to hide it all from Congress.
Then there is DOJ goal of impeding the Voter ID movement. This is a blatant political issue and looks ridiculous to average voters who can't drive too closely to an airport without getting a mandatory full cavity search. Forget what it says about how stupid the DOJ believes Americans are.
Then there is the DOJ's willingness to bring suit against Arizona for doing their job for them. They have begun enforcing a federal immigration law that those of a progressive stripe would prefer not be enforced at all. We've all recently read Justice Roberts asking Obama lawyers the questions that we wish the press would ask. (At least someone did.)
Add to that the fact that the DOJ has stated that they are unwilling to address any voting rights issues that don't specify the victim as 'black', their apparent desire to push Miranda rights onto the battlefields of the mid east by giving detainees civilian trials, and their needless intrusion into the politics of the Trayvon Martin killing, and something becomes very clear. That the DOJ under Eric Holder has many interest, but none of them have to do equality under the law or protecting the principle of "Justice".
It's a dangerous thing to accuse politicians of criminality. The opposite of politics is not consensus but violence, so arguing about things politically is a least bad option. And when you accuse people of being so partisan that they are not just skirting the edges of the law but are in wonton violation of it, you open the door to all sorts of ugliness. But reluctant as I am to ever cast the first stone on any topic (since my own sins are so great) I have to admit, If ever there were a political figure who looks like an out and out criminal to me, it would have to be Eric Holder. I have no specifically indictable information with regard to the Attorney General. But he's had a hand in so many public mud-pies that I have to believe he's got some dirt under his nails someplace.
He may have covered his tracks well enough to stay out of jail, but at this point I think it would be a service to America if someone started looking for some. I believe the Eric Holder is an enemy of the interests of America. And although it may not be directly, he's up for reelection this fall just as his boss is.
