How Comey looks to a man without integrity

Former Attorney General Eric Holder is unhappy that James Comey informed Congress that the investigation of Hillary Clinton has been reopened. Holder expresses his displeasure in the Washington Post.

Nowhere in Holder’s article does he address Comey’s stated reason for providing Congress with this information — namely, that Comey was obligated to correct his previous statement that the investigation was closed. But then, being honest with Congress never mattered to Holder. The House found him to be in criminal contempt of Congress for stonewalling that body when it tried to investigate the fast-and-furious gunrunning scandal.

Holder cited “executive privilege.” But Ed Morrissey reminds us that a court rejected his privilege claim.

In his Post article, Holder claims, in essence, that Comey’s letter to Congress unwittingly undermines public faith in the integrity of the Justice Department. Holder knows a thing or two about that.

As Attorney General, he turned the Department of Justice into a taxpayer-funded command center for the race-mongering left. His objective was advocacy on behalf of certain minority groups, not neutral enforcement of the law.

Nor was Holder a pillar of integrity during his time as Deputy Attorney General. Remember the scandalous pardon of Clinton pal and fugitive tax cheat Marc Rich — a pardon that Rich appears to have bought? That was Holder’s work. Ed has the details.

Democratic partisans are attacking Comey’s decision in unison. We will not hear a less credible, less reputable voice in the choir than Eric Holder’s.
