Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder Considers a Presidential Campaign of his Own in 2020

WOW, THIS DUDE THINKS A LOT OF HIMSELF … ACTUALLY ERIC NOTORIETY IS NOT A GOOD THING.

Republicans be fearful, former Obama attorney general Eric Holder is considering a run for the White House in 2020. According to Yahoo News, Holder believes that he has a certain status as the former attorney general and a certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. HUH? These liberals are legends in their own minds. Most people probably have no clue who Holder is and could care less that he was the first black attorney general. It appears he is going to try and use his Obama coattails and be a part of the resistance to gain favor with the LEFT. These Lefties just cannot go away after they lose. Most individuals remember Holder for being a part of the gun running disaster known as Fast & Furious and the fact that he was held in contempt of Congress. Then as Legal Insurrection reminds us there was that little incident where he refused to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation.

More than two years after leaving the Obama administration, former Attorney General Eric Holder is reentering the political fray.

His goal: to lead the legal resistance to Donald Trump’s agenda — and perhaps even run against the president in 2020.
Seized by a sense of urgency to oppose Trump and restore what he regards as America’s best self, Holder is mulling a White House bid of his own, according to three sources who have spoken to him and are familiar with his thinking.

“Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes,” Holder told Yahoo News in an exclusive interview about his plans. “But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President Obama. So I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country.

But Monday’s event was also something bigger: a coming-out party of sorts for a figure who sees his work in California as a springboard to a new role as the key legal architect — and one of the major public faces — of the nationwide progressive pushback against President Trump.

Rarely mentioned as a 2020 contender and controversial while in office, Holder would enter any Democratic primary contest as a long shot. Even his engagement with the resistance is something of a surprise. For most of his career, Holder was seen as a conventional, mild-mannered figure. But he grew more pugnacious as attorney general, in part because Republicans never stopped attacking him, and he wound up pursuing a sharply progressive agenda during Obama’s second term.

Eric Holder left office with a 26% approval rating. In his mind he thinks he is the next voice of the Democrat party. What a delusional world these Libs really do live in. All we have to say is RUN, ERIC, RUN!!!

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says on CNN’s State of the Union … Calls for Investigation into Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions After Comey Testimony in Regards to the Clinton Email Scandal

Via RedState, in a interview on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that there should be an investigation into former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions that came out during former FBI directors testimony last Thursday to the Senate. Comey testified that Lynch improperly injected politics into the investigation. Comey was told to call the FBI criminal investigation a matter.  However, in that case, Comey had no issue doing exactly what the AG told him to do and provided cover for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. Although now he claims it gave him a queasy feeling.

It’s not every day the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee says a political appointee of the same party needs to be investigated. But that’s exactly what Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) said on Sunday’s State of the Union on CNN of former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions in regards to the Clinton email scandal.

“I think we need to know more about that,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) on Sunday’s episode of State of the Union. “And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”

Feinstein’s comment comes in the wake of fired F.B.I. Director James Comey’s testimony last week in which he claimed Lynch — who herself created a firestorm when she made a visit to allegedly chitchat with Bill Clinton on the tarmac during the 2016 campaign — told him to call the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of email as Secretary of State a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”

Federal Government Contractor Reality Leigh Winner Charged With Removing & Mailing (Leaking) Classified Materials to a News Outlet

IT IS ABOUT TIME AND SHE NEEDS TO BE MADE AN EXAMPLE …

No sooner was a top-secret NSA report details Russian hacking effort days before the 2016 Election published at The Intercept, 25 year old Federal government contractor Reality Leigh Winner was arrested and charged with illegally removing and leaking the classified information to the media. Let this be an example to this snowflake and the rest of the anti-Trump individuals in the intelligence world who have been doing this. It is a federal crime to do this and some one has to have the book thrown at them and put in prison to stop this nonsense. As it turns out, the leaker, Reality Leigh Winner is a Bernie Sanders supporter. SHOCKER!!! Now this is news, think the MSM will report the charges against the liberal Sanders supporter?

Federal criminal complaint filed against alleged leaker:

A criminal complaint was filed in the Southern District of Georgia today charging Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a federal contractor from Augusta, Georgia, with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet, in violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 793(e).Winner was arrested by the FBI at her home on Saturday,

June 3, and appeared in federal court in Augusta this afternoon.

“Exceptional law enforcement efforts allowed us quickly to identify and arrest the defendant,” said Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein. “Releasing classified material without authorization threatens our nation’s security and undermines public faith in government. People who are trusted with classified information and pledge to protect it must be held accountable when they violate that obligation.”

According to the allegations contained in the criminal complaint:

Winner is a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation assigned to a U.S. government agency facility in Georgia. She has been employed at the facility since on or about February 13, and has held a Top Secret clearance during that time. On or about May 9, Winner printed and improperly removed classified intelligence reporting, which contained classified national defense information from an intelligence community agency, and unlawfully retained it. Approximately a few days later, Winner unlawfully transmitted by mail the intelligence reporting to an online news outlet.

Once investigative efforts identified Winner as a suspect, the FBI obtained and executed a search warrant at her residence. According to the complaint, Winner agreed to talk with agents during the execution of the warrant. During that conversation, Winner admitted intentionally identifying and printing the classified intelligence reporting at issue despite not having a “need to know,” and with knowledge that the intelligence reporting was classified. Winner further admitted removing the classified intelligence reporting from her office space, retaining it, and mailing it from Augusta, Georgia, to the news outlet, which she knew was not authorized to receive or possess the documents.

Sen. Grassley Grills James Clapper & Sally Yates on Unmasking of Trump Officials … Both Admit They Did, but Refuse to Provide Details (VIDEO)

HMM …

James Clapper & Sally Yates admit they viewed classified documents in which Mr. Trump, his associates or members of Congress had been unmasked, but refuse to provide details.  Sen. Chuck Grassley grilled both former NSA Director James Clapper and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates on the unmasking of private citizens under surveillance by the US government. They both admitted to doing to, but would not provide details in public.

They denied leaking the data to the press, but some one did.

RCP:

SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY: Did either of you ever review classified documents, in which Mr. Trump his associates, or members of Congress had been unmasked.
JAMES CLAPPER: Well, yes.
GRASSLEY: You have? Can you give us details here?
CLAPPER: Well. No, I can’t.
GRASSLEY: Ms. Yates, have you?
SALLY YATES: Yes, and I can’t give you details.
GRASSLEY: Did either of you ever share infomation about unmasked Trump associates or members of Congress with anyone else?
CLAPPER: Um. Well, I’m thinking back of six-and-a-half years, I could have discussed it with either my deputy or my general counsel.
GRASSLEY: OKay, Ms. Yates?
YATES: In the course of the Flynn matter, I had discussions with other members of the intel community — I’m not sure if that is responsive to your question.
GRASSLEY: And in both cases, you can’t give details here?
YATES: No.
CLAPPER: No.

Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice Declines to Testify Before Senate Subcommittee

OF COURSE SUSAN RICE HAD NO PROBLEM GOING ON CNN AND DISCUSSING THE ISSUES …

As reported at Politico, Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan. SERIOUSLY? If the allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes is absolutely false, then why is former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice ducking the U.S. Senate subcommittee? Me thinks you have much to hide. Honestly, how does Susan Rice think that declining the request to testify on Russian hacking not make her look guilty as sin? So much for the most transparent administration ever.

Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan.

Rice’s decision to decline the invitation to testify on Russia’s election meddling came in a letter from her lawyer, Kathryn Ruemmler, to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).

The letter, first reported by CNN, notes that the invitation to testify came only from Graham and that Whitehouse “has informed us by letter that he did not agree to” the request, which Ruemmler calls “a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses.”

“Moreover,” Ruemmler writes, “Chairman Graham’s invitation was extended only after the hearing was noticed, less than two weeks before the hearing was scheduled to occur, and without consultation with Ambassador Rice, a professional courtesy that would customarily be extended to any witness.”

The Judiciary subcommittee is holding a hearing next Monday that will feature testimony from former acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice had no prob;em going on the lap dog media to discuss the issues but then declines to testify for a Senate subcommittee on Russian hacking. Watch the video below of the liberal MSM trying to defend the unmasking of names. So it is ok to go on the friendly bias MSM, but hell no to Senate where she would be sworn in.
