Eric Holder tries to justify using DoJ planes for personal use.

Oh, Eric.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related.

“My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me,” Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. “There was this notion that we’ve taken — I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it and figured out from the time period that they were looking, we took not hundreds, but 27 personal, four combined — official and nonpersonal trips — and none of the trips that I took or that the [FBI] director took ever had an impact on the mission capability of those airplanes.”

Don’t get your hopes up that this will the final nail in Holder’s coffin – if the media didn’t care that this man got Mexican civilians and American law enforcement officers killed, they won’t care much about this – but pity the next Attorney General who has to take this position. Republican-appointed or Democratic; Eric Holder’s habit of casually defecating all over the office of Attorney General is going to leave one heck of a carpet-cleaning bill.

PS: Oh, I’m sure that it’s all nice and legal. I’m also sure that Eric Holder didn’t kick in for the gas.

  1. Yeah it’s amazing what the media let’s the administration get away with…

    1. Not amazing at all. Any one of my age (47) has known for at least 20 years that “the media” is an extension of the democrat party’s will. No lie to great, no subterfuge too small for the MSM to disseminate in support of the donks……….

      1. Indeed.
        I remember the media flacks exulting over a public speech by Presidential Candidate Bill Clinton as evidence of his deep insight and principled stance.
        The next day, the same candidate made another public speech to a different audience, and just as strongly held the opposite positions as he’d held the day before. It was reported in the same glowing terms, by the same reporters and pundits.
        And the crowd of people hanging out in the SUB ate it up both times. (Most of which were there for both occurrences.)
        That’s the moment when I knew that we were doomed.

  2. Why is Holder even trying to justify this? He should just laugh and then slap any reporter that dares to mention it.

  3. Come on, you know what’s going to happen in early 2017 …
    How about an amendment to the Constitution that removes a sitting president’s power to grant pardons as of ten days before the national presidential election?
