This is going to be Eric Holder’s life, now.
Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to meet with House Republicans as part of their probe into whether he misled Congress or acted inappropriately in the Justice Department’s investigation of two separate leaks to media outlets.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) made the announcement late Friday after exchanging several weeks worth of testy letters with the nation’s top cop.
In agreeing to meet with the lawmakers, Holder staved off the threat of a subpoena from Goodlatte for a second time in as many weeks.
And it’s going to be Eric Holder’s life until he is no longer Attorney General. As this Newsmax article notes, Holder has racked up quite a lot of unanswered questions and questionable activities involving his conduct since… well, January of 2009. The folks in Congress who are tasked with oversight of the Executive Branch have not particularly forgotten about any of them, either. Nor have they overlooked that Eric Holder doesn’t have nearly the same level of media shielding now that he’s previously enjoyed.
So they’re going to make his life miserable. Yes, yes, you’re all as broken up about this as I am.
