Like Watergate and Iran Contra, Clinton impeachment, if the press wants a
scandle, they get one. If they don't, it probably won't go beyond
Capital Hill. Cynical I know, but how else am I supposed to see this?
The reason why this appears to be evident is he wasn't ready for that
question to be asked and act benevolent toward the person asking the question.
The President can always have his minion going to Congress to fend of the attack
on his questionable integrity. Ambassador Rice, and others from the White House
Staff who were prepped to answer in a way that would be non-relevant to the
question. How many decisions are made behind the close doors of
those administrative executive offices that don't make it to the top of the
news? Many and most of the days events are not covered by the Obama friendly
press and media. However, with the press process being subpoenaed by
this President and AG, the plot thickens against the Press who were just
convenient for the Chicago group to use. Now, some of the Press knows what it
is like to be under the thumb of the President and his staffers.
Eric Holder said that he is not lying. Obama said that Eric Holder is not
lying. If you can't trust the top law enforcement official in the
administratin and the President, who can you trust?It's time to
fire them all.
Did he lie? I guess that depends on what your definition of "is" is.
People of all stripes have been coming into Congressional hearings and lying to
Congress for many years. Who is ever prosecuted for perjury? Very, very few.
I don't think Congress has the kahoonas to prosecute leaders for perjury,
and therefore Holder, IRS officials, State Department officials, and probably
anyone else who gets dragged into the current scandals feels there is very
little risk in providing deceptive testimony. As long as they couch
their deception in legalese, they feel confident in their ability to protect the
highest culpable levels and suffer no legal consequences. Several of them are
even receiving promotions. There's no fear of lying to Congress, and that
needs to be restored in order for the public to have any trust in these or any
other future hearings.There needs to be a sizable pile of
high-profile perjury prosecutions to strike fear of dishonesty in those
testifying before Congress.
But wait, I thought holder was part of the most transparent adminsitration in
transparent, but not in the way they wanted us to believe
The intent of deceiving is what he did. He knew what the Congress was asking
and since it wasn't the topic of discussion he was caught off guard on the
answer he should give. It is sort of like Nixon's AG John Mitchell. If
the Attorney General lied, whether he was under direct oath, he took an oath
already to defend our country in the legal sense. He has skirted every request
by Congress in the past. If you can't trust the Attorney General, the top
law enforcer official in the country, then that is a real shame. It came from
his mouth. Sort of like when Hillary has a tirade before Congress asking what
difference does it may. They try to avoid and evade everything with patting
themselves on their back. Eric Holder didn't go to Jeremiah Wrights church
so he doesn't have the skill and cunning and sleight of tongue the
President learned after 20 years. If the AG chooses to depart, then Valerie
will have her say again. With John Mitchell and the other top advisors leaving
one way or another, even the Vice-President, they all ended up in trouble.
"Attorney General Eric Holder is under fire from Congress again as the House
Judiciary Committee looks into whether or not he lied under oath"So, Holder is part of the House Judiciary Committee?I did not know
Shameful, when a lie can't be determined with clear evidence.
With standardized testing, we hold school children, and teachers more
accountable then our political leaders.
Very smart.Let Holder investigate Holder.
