Opinion| Mark Sidney| The first sitting Presidential cabinet member to ever be held in contempt of Congress, Obama’s ‘wingman’ and former Attorney General, Eric Holder, is back to doing what he does best … making a complete and total ass of himself.
Perhaps you remember Eric from scandals such as Fast and Furious, where the Obama admin decided it would be a wonderful idea to ‘”purposely allow[ed] licensed firearms dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers, hoping to track the guns to Mexican drug cartel leaders and arrest them”‘
The Obama admin claimed giving the guns to the cartels would help them track the movements of the cartel.
Call me crazy, but I do not believe that for a second. Now, I do not think Holder and Obama to be the sharpest tools in the shed, but they are smart enough to know that giving rifles to killers is not a good idea … if you are looking for a peaceful outcome … but why would we assume that peace was what they wanted?
The Washington Times reported on the case back in 2017:
‘The House Oversight Committee let loose with a scathing assessment of Eric Holder in a recent report, accusing the Barack Obama-era attorney general of outright misleading Congress on its investigation of the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal.
For those of you who do not know, Brian Terry, is the Border Patrol agent who was mysteriously gunned down, allegedly by the very weapons that the Fast and Furious program was providing.
I think this should give you some good context as to how Eric Holder thinks about the victims of his crimes.
Consider that when reading this report from The Gateway Pundit:
‘Obama’s corrupt “wingman” AG Eric Holder lashed out at investigative reporter Paul Sperry this week and told him to ‘shut the hell up.’
Recall, Paul Sperry revealed the identity of the anti-Trump CIA ‘whistleblower’ **** ********** in an explosive Real Clear Investigations report.
Sperry also exposed the left-wing federal prosecutor who let McCabe off the hook.
McCabe was let off the hook by the feds even though he admitted lying to investigators.
“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe,” prosecutors J.P. Cooney and Molly Gaston wrote to McCabe’s lawyers. “Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the Government at this time, we consider the matter closed.”’
“Molly Gaston, the asst US Attorney who signed letter to McCabe’s lawyer informing McCabe she was closing criminal case against him, is Democrat who’s given thousands to Dems including Obama & who once worked for Dem side of House Oversight & whose mother worked for WaPo,” Paul Sperry said.
“Why don’t you shut the hell up. Your bias is showing. I bet you’ve never been a prosecutor or have any idea how DOJ works. People like you-who want to use the justice system for political reasons-are both dangerous and ignorant. The case was-like you-an obvious loser,” Eric Holder said to Paul Sperry.

Methinks the lady doth protest too much.
Holder has such contempt for anyone who is in between him & his crew and total control over our lives. It seems to me that Holder thinks that he IS the law.
I hear all these leftists taking about how civil our government was before Trump … wut?
I think it is high time that Eric Holder finally pays for being held in contempt of Congress … maybe even for the death of Brian Terry. But hey, that’s just like my opinion, man.
