KOMMONSENTSJANE – DISGRACED ERIC HOLDER IS BACK.

The DNC is trying to rearrange their districts. So, they – Pelso – Holder – Warren – have been in Texas and working to make it blue – Democrat.

“We’ll be crisscrossing the country meeting with supporters and ensuring that the NDRC can help lead the effort to win critical governors races in 2017 and 2018,” McAuliffe said, “and give Democrats a seat at the table in the 2021 redistricting process.”

A blast from the past.

In the past recent days, we have heard from Eric Holder that he is thinking about running for President in the next election. With all of the corruption during Obama’s eight years – how could anyone elect, except the people who enjoyed Obama’s ideology and corruption – Eric Holder?

Following are the remarks made by lawmakers when he resigned from his position as attorney general in the Obama administration – the most corrupt administration in the history of our Republic.

On Thursday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, one of President Barack Obama’s longest-serving Cabinet members, announced his resignation. His legacy remains mixed among Republicans and Democrats in Congress. Here’s what Texas lawmakers had to say about the soon-to-be former attorney general.

The news that Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce his resignation sparked strong reactions from Texas lawmakers Thursday.

Holder is the fourth-longest tenured AG in history, having served since the start of President Obama’s first term, and many have been critical of him during his stint at the White House.

His refusal to turn over documents in the “Fast and Furious” gun-trafficking scandal resulted in the Republican-held House of Representatives holding him in contempt. He has also been criticized for not prosecuting financial executives whose risky business moves helped cause the Great Recession; the decision to try the 9/11 conspirators in New York City (which he later reversed); authorizing the seizure of journalists’ phone records; and for not filing criminal charges against IRS employees who targeted organizations for political reasons.

He has sued for more equal voting rights in states, refused to enforce a law banning same-sex marriage and helped push for reduced prison time for nonviolent drug offenders.

Holder reportedly plans to stay in his current role until a successor can be named, which could take several months because of the election and subsequent lame-duck Congress.

On Thursday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, one of President Barack Obama’s longest-serving Cabinet members, announced his resignation. His legacy remains mixed among Republicans and Democrats in Congress. Here’s what Texas lawmakers had to say about the soon-to-be former attorney general.

Rep Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio: “Of all the executive branch agencies, the Department of Justice is the one that should remain above politics. Yet, President Obama has repeatedly directed Attorney General Holder to ignore and undermine current laws. Under this administration, numerous scandals have plagued the DOJ, including the execution and cover-up of Operation Fast & Furious. I would also be interested to know if Attorney General Holder’s departure is tied to recent court orders demanding that DOJ release documents it has tried to hide behind executive privilege. We can only hope his successor w

Rep. Bill Flores, R-Bryan: “Attorney General Eric Holder has continuously and shamefully violated his oath of office, which is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. His actions have displayed a reckless disregard for our rule of law, causing a deep mistrust of the federal government among law-abiding Americans. In light of his egregious abuse of the powers of his office, I have previously called for his resignation, termination and impeachment. He is unfit to serve as Attorney General, and hardworking American families are much better off with him out of office.”ill restore the integrity of the Department of Justice.”

Sen. John Cornyn: “Unfortunately the American people, myself included, lost confidence in the Attorney General’s ability to lead a long time ago because of his continued willingness to put politics before the law. The nation deserves an Attorney General whose loyalty to the justice system will trump loyalty to a political party, and I hope the President will nominate someone who will uphold the basic standards of honesty, transparency, and accountability that have been so glaringly absent in this Justice Department.”

Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands: “Enforcing the laws of our nation is the chief job of the U.S. Attorney General and Eric Holder has repeatedly refused to do so. Holder leaves behind a record that includes ignoring the clearly unlawful behavior of IRS employee Lois Lerner, illegal gun-running to Mexican drug cartels and being held in contempt by the U.S. House of Representatives. This is why I and several other Republican House members called for his resignation a long time ago. His resignation is great news for the American people and we can only hope that the President nominates a successor who will be interested in enforcing all of the laws of our land, and not just the ones that are politically expedient for the White House.

Sen. Ted Cruz: “It is good news that Eric Holder has announced his resignation. Sadly, he has proven to be the most partisan attorney general in our history, repeatedly defying and refusing to enforce the law. It did not have to be this way, but Holder’s leadership has grievously undermined the Department of Justice’s long bipartisan tradition of independence and fidelity to law.”

Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas: “I am glad to see that Eric Holder has finally decided to resign from his position as Attorney General. During his tenure, he covered up violations of the law, politicized the enforcement of the law, and stonewalled Congressional oversight time and time again. There’s a reason why Holder was the first ever US Attorney General in history to be held in both criminal and civil contempt. While most government officials whose careers are marred with scandal wish to clear their name, Holder’s decision to resign was the correct one. I sincerely hope that whomever the President nominates to be the next Attorney General has a greater respect for the rule of law.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston: “The Attorney General’s tenure has been marked by historic gains in the areas of criminal justice reform and civil rights enforcement. Being the Attorney General of this great land is no easy task because our laws are only as effective, only as compassionate, and only as fair as those who enforce them. In the end, our union is only as perfect as we are willing to work for.”
