Not Good for America... But Really Not Good for Obama... And Really Really Really Not Good for Eric Holder
Here's Eric Holder swearing to tell the truth before last week's testimony before Congress. Usually sitting cabinet members are not required to take the oath, but that courtesy was suspended for this hearing. So he was under oath, and any lies would be punishable as perjury, which carries a five-year potential prison sentence.
That's not good. Here's why.
Holder testified that he had never been involved with, heard of, and wouldn't tolerate going after the phone records of journalists in leak investigations.
But it turns out he had personally approved and signed the application to subpoena the phone records of James Rosen of FoxNews.
Look's like perjury to me.
And remember: this is the Attorney General of the United States hand-picked by Barack Obama to serve as his chief law enforcement officer.
He can't commit perjury. If the Attorney General commits perjury, the credibility of the law in America collapses.
Holder must go.
