Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning at long last. Good riddance.
(If President Obama wants to stay the course, I would suggest Al Sharpton as a replacement. Nobody can frustrate legal process like Big Al. Sharpton effortlessly dodges lawsuits and tax collectors. He’s got the kind of legal experience that makes him a perfect fit at the Justice Department.)
Holder is the legal ringleader for today’s Democrats and their noxious culture of corruption. After being held in criminal contempt of Congress in June 2012 — the first such citation against a sitting attorney general in American history — for a while he has been just a few steps away from being impeached in the House of Representatives. Now it appears he will never be tried in the Senate for the high crimes and misdemeanors he has committed against the American people.
If there is any justice, after the Obama era mercifully draws to a close, Holder will be prosecuted for a litany of abuses that have been ably documented by J. Christian Adams in Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department and by John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky in Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department.
But don’t hold your breath waiting for justice to be done.
