Eric Holder says Barr ’unfit’ to serve as attorney general

Former Attorney General Eric Holder called out William Barr, saying he has lost his reputation as a ’respected lawyer’ and is ’unfit’ to serve in his position. Holder, who served as attorney general between 2009 and 2015, in an op-ed wrote that Barr’s recent public statements and actions warranted a response because of how ’nakedly partisan’ they were.

[Holder] points to a comment Barr made last month at a Federalist Society event, asserting that Barr made the “outlandish suggestion that Congress cannot entrust anyone but the president himself to execute the law.” Since the president is the duly elected Cheif Executive Officer, Barr’s statement is not ‘outlandish’, but in line with the constitution. “I welcome the news that Eric Holder will step down as Attorney General,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, in an email. “From Operation Fast and Furious to his misleading testimony before the House Judiciary Committee regarding the Department’s dealings with members of the media and his refusal to appoint a special counsel to investigate the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups, Mr. Holder has consistently played partisan politics with many of the important issues facing the Justice Department.” — www.politico.com https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/09/why-holder-quit-111333 https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/biggest-controversies-eric-holders-term-attorney-general/story?id=25758871 https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/05/william-barr-vs-eric-holder-a-tale-of-two-attorneys-general/

OMG! That is unbelievably rich. The guy that spent his entire time as AG in contempt of Congress and lied/withheld evidence from the American people. This is the last guy that should ever open his mouth about AG conduct.

Is this the same guy that was held in contempt of Congress as acting AG over the “fast and furious” scandal? Yeah I’m totally sure he’s a good judge of the situation.
