Holder: GOP Has Made Me A ‘Proxy’ To Attack Obama


eric-holderIn his first interview since the House of Representatives voted to hold him in contempt of Congress on Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder told the Washington Post that Republicans have made him a “proxy” to attack President Barack Obama.

“I’ve become a symbol of what they don’t like about the positions this Justice Department has taken,” Holder told the paper. “I am also a proxy for the president in an election year. You have to be exceedingly naive to think that vote was about . . . documents.”

The contempt vote against Holder was over the Justice Department’s decision not to turn over documents tied to the failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation. It was the first time a Cabinet member was held in contempt of Congress.

Holder also told the Post that he was angry, but not surprised, by the vote. But he said he’s not considering stepping down because of it.

  1. What an arrogant man! He just, doesn’t get it! You corrupt criminal! What a lying cheat! This unelected bum will be thrown out with the Cover up in Chief, come November! What a disgrace this Government is!

  2. No, my dear, it has been your reluctance to cooperate, obstructionist tactics and apparent incompetence that has caused this investigation to last so long and for the discourse to become so distateful. The President became involved with his extending of Executive Privledge.
    Matza Min Ess Mino. Birds of a feather…

  3. Pidyon Shvuyim is one of the most important Mitzvos.

    The suffering of our brothers Jonathan Pollard and Sholom Rubashkin in Federal prisons under unjust sentences, and the stubborn refusal of Obama and Holder to free them, make it imperative that we vote them out of office in November.
