Legal Case Against Eric Holder

By Willie Deutsch

On her show, Justice with Judge Jeanine, former New York prosecutor and judge, Jeanine Pirro, eviscerated Eric Holder’s Department of Justice and laid out the legal case against him.

Doug Ross wrote a transcript of the six counts Jeanine outlined.

Count 1Perjury, for the May 15th statement before the House Judiciary Committee that you, Eric Holder, know nothing about the potential prosecution of the press — that it’s not something you’ve ever been involved with — when, in truth, you not only knew the statement was not true, you personally approved the seeking of a warrant for those records.

Count 2False Statement, Knowingly making a False Statement within the matter of the jurisdiction of the Legislative Branch, for that same testimony. Although here, an enhanced sentence for Obstruction.

Count 3Aiding and Abetting, for your role in Fast and Furious, Aiding and Abetting for your letter to the House Judiciary Committee dated February 4, 2011, by your Deputy Ron Wyden stating unequivocally that there was no gun-walking and no weapons sent across the Mexican border. That statement was also a lie, which you had to admit after.

Count 4Mispirison of Felony, for your knowledge when you had a duty to stop the gun-running to Mexico, and your failure to do so.

Count 5Perjury, for your lies to Congress that you first heard about Fast and Furious in late April of 2011 when even the president admits he knew about it before that.

Count 6Conspiracy, allowing for the use of and providing guns to the Mexican Cartels during a drug-trafficking offense in furtherance of a drug-trafficking conspiracy.

ALG just called for Eric Holder to appoint a Special Counsel in the IRS targeting case.  If Holder refuses, he will continue to show that he is putting politics over justice.  The Department of Justice should be a place where justice is doggedly pursued, not an agency providing legal cover for the president’s scandals.  Any Attorney General that bypasses the law and refuses to pursue justice should not step down.

This interview also highlights what we stated earlier, going after the media was the worst decision made by the Obama administration yet.  When they went after the media, the people that would normally protect them began to aggressively investigate them.  In the eyes of the media, it is one thing in the eyes of the media for Obama to go after conservative groups, but once he twisted the law to come after them, it was another matter all together.  The investigations into the AP and Fox News were what really got Judge Jeanine Pirro upset in this 12 minute tirade.  Watch it and enjoy.
