Attorney General Eric Holder Plays the Victim Card, Says Republicans Made Him a ‘proxy’ to Attack President Obama
Well, if Democrats can’t play the race card, they are all too willing to play the victim card … or both.
Attorney General Eric Holder has played the victim card. Holder stated that the Republican House have made the “Fast & Furious” gun walking program a politically motivated investigation during an election year and used him as a proxy to attack President Obama. The House voted last week to hold Eric Holder in criminal and civil Contempt of Congress. Actually, the only reason why the “Fast & Furious” scandal has lead to an election year was because of the delay and stall tactics by Holder. Had he handed over the requested documents when they were first asked for, this would have been over months ago. Instead Holder wants to play the victim, but like states at The Gateway Pundit, this could have nothing to do with getting documents and information as to the gun walking program and the death of border agent Brian Terry and finding answers for the slain agent’s family.
Ya got my back, right dude?
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. sharply criticized lawmakers Monday for voting to hold him in contempt of Congress last week, saying Republicans have made him a “proxy” to attack President Obama in an election year.
In his first interview since Thursday’s vote, Holder said lawmakers have used an investigation of a botched gun-tracking operation as a way to seek retribution against the Justice Department for its policies on a host of issues, including immigration, voting rights and gay marriage. He said the chairman of the committee leading the inquiry, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), is engaging in political theater as the Justice Department tries to focus on public safety.
“I’ve been doing all of these things all the time Darrell Issa and his band have been nipping at my heels,” a defiant Holder said. “They’ve been nipping, but I’ve been walking.”
Brian Terry, the real victim in “Fast & Furious”
So let’s get this correct, Eric Holder thinks he has done nothing wrong and this is all about an concerted effort to get Barack Obama? Really Mr. Holder, that is your final answer? Who is playing politics? Could anyone really be this arrogant? It is hard to believe that a White House could be so insensitive to a slain border agent’s family in refusing to get to the bottom of what happened, who knew what and when. A note to the Honorable Eric Holder, the only victim is Brian Terry, his family and the individuals killed in Mexico as a result of this failed program.
