End Of The Line For Holder?

 

 

 

 

” Attorney General Eric Holder may have lied in testimony given to Congress given earlier this month. Even if it was not under oath, the offense would be a felony subject to a maximum of five years in prison. The exchange actually happened with Hank Johnson (he of “imagine a world without balloons” and other greatest gaffe hits). This is what the memory-challenged AG had to say:

First of all you’ve got a long way to go to try to prosecute the press for publication of material. This has not fared well in American history… In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material. This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.

You see, Eric Holder is the kind of guy who remembers with fine detail what he did do to cover his behind, but when it comes to the actual main components of the scandal at hand, he just don’t know.

If it turns out that Holder lied to Congress when he said the prosecution of the press for publication of material “is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of,” the habitual line-stepper will be in career-ender kind of hot water. And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy; Holder has pulled off more improbable escapes than Harry Houdini.”
