Eric Holder Questions “Legitimacy” of Supreme Court after Kavanaugh Confirmation

 In opinion, Politics

Eric Holder, the Attorney General under Obama’s first 6 years, says the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court puts the court itself into question of its legitimacy. He’s also been sniffing out a 2020 Presidential run, according to Fox News. Frankly, he has no room whatsoever to be throwing stones from his glass house.

 

So how does the court become ‘worthy’ of the nation’s trust? By turning into leftist heaven? We couldn’t trust Holder. Lawsuits against states over their Voter ID laws, prosecuting American military members like Clint Lorance for doing their jobs, all of that reeks.

Congress did not conduct hearings on Merrick Garland because he was nominated close to the election of a new President. If Hillary had won, they would have been forced to hold a hearing. But Trump won, thankfully. Rhetoric like “use the rage of today” and “be rid of these people”…what do you think?

Holder’s glass house

Holder was placed in Contempt of Congress during his term as Attorney General over his failure to provide information to them regarding the “Fast and Furious” gun running scandal. And make no mistake, that was a scandal. One for which Border Patrol agent Brian Terry gave  his life when he was killed with one of the guns given to the drug cartels.

“On June 20, 2012, the Oversight Committee voted 23–17 along party lines to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for not releasing documents the committee had requested. … On June 28, 2012, Holder became the first U.S. Attorney General in history to be held in both criminal and civil contempt.”

Of course, Holder left the job in 2014. When someone is charged with contempt, the finding is supposed to be turned over to the AG to generate a Grand Jury. But since the finding was against the Attorney General, it never went anywhere. What was that about “legitimacy?”

“Eric Holder is the most divisive U.S. attorney general in modern history.” Rep Darrell Issa

Legitimacy. Holder doesn’t have it. And the court has now swung officially to the right. Even as Eric Holder demands that his lefties get out and vote, we must fight as well. Do not stay home on November 6- get out and bring in the Red Tsunami.

    As Rush Limbaugh stated the other day
    “The left is mad as hell because now they will have to legislate their left policies and agenda rather than having the highest court in the land MANDATE them.”
