GOP USA: Eric Holder, who served as attorney general under Barack Obama, announced his intent to announce his decision on running for the presidency in 2020.
Run, Eric, run.
Americans are still waiting for answers to certain Justice Department issues from the Obama years — and what better way to get them finally answered than during a presidential campaign vetting?
“Eric Holder Sure Sounds Like He’s Running for President,” one Mother Jones headline just ran.
“Eric Holder says he’ll decide on 2020 run in March,” another headline from NBC News read.
And Holder himself said during Iowa’s Drake University: “I’m going to sit down with my family very soon and decide whether or not this is something we’re going to seek,” The Hill reported.
Do it. Run.
Holder, remember, was held in civil contempt in Congress for refusing to turn over subpoenaed documents tied to Operation Fast and Furious, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives gun-walking operation that led to the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. The triggerman in that case, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was just convicted; there’s the fresh angle to bring the matter to light once again. more here
