Is Eric Holder the worst AG in history? Why or why not?
- suthrnlyts™Lv 79 years agoFavorite Answer
“Attorney General Eric Holder now operates the most politicized and ideological Department of Justice (DOJ) in recent history. And revelations from the Operation Fast and Furious scandal suggest that programs approved by the Holder DOJ may have resulted in the needless deaths of many, including a federal law enforcement officer,” the group wrote.
The failed Fast and Furious weapons trafficking investigation allowed nearly 2,500 guns cross the U.S.-Mexico border and into the hands of international smugglers. One of those guns was later found next to a border patrol agent, who was shot dead.
Holder initially denied knowledge of the operation. However, emails revealed that he was in fact privy to the operation’s details.
It's also been discovered that these actions were being used as a means for future gun control.
New revelations emerged in 2011 about the DOJ’s Black Panther scandal. Judicial Watch uncovered evidence that the liberal special interest group National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) may have had an inappropriate amount of influence on the DOJ’s decision to drop its voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense. This comes on the heels of sworn testimony that the Civil Rights Division of the Holder DOJ makes enforcement decisions based upon race.
Judicial Watch has placed him in the top ten for corrupt politicians for 2011 and for good reason.

He is by far the worst AG in American history, he doesn't inforce the laws he try's to change or manipulate them to best fit his agenda and the agenda of the President. From refusing to prosecute the Black Panthers the Fast and Furious scandal. him going after Sheriff Joe Arpaio for inforcing the law. Unfortunately he was never properly vetted, they should have known just how corrupt Holder was from the beginning, his participation in the cover up of the Oklahoma City bomber, the now convicted Governor of Illinois hiring him for $400,000 to investigate possible mob ties in Illinois casino gambling ( he should have been investigating possible war criminals )...The main stream media has been protecting him and Obama for far too long.

No the two under Bush get that award. John Ashcroft for being a goody two-shoes dork that did not understand crime. And Alberto Gonzales for blantenly being corrupt.

He's great if you are a Mexican drug lord. Not so great for the thousands of dead innocent Mexicans and Americans.
