Eric Holder

Michael Collins: The Edwards Prosecution - They have better things to do

Michael Collins

We can draw several clear conclusions from the indictment of John Edwards.

The case is a joke, quite literally. It mocks justice.

The cast of characters consists of people who should have recused themselves, rather than bringing a prosecution. This strange case has the faint odor of the nonstop assault on former Alabama governor, Don Siegelman.

Apparently the Department of Justice has a lot of time on its hands. How else could it pursue this transparent nonsense while failing to prosecute the perpetrators of the financial collapse?

Finally, the prosecution shows that those in control are not even pretending to acknowledge a rule of law.

 

Wake me up when the hostile takeover of stupid is over...

Yesterday Sen. Kit Bond had some severe criticism of Eric Holder, with Bond claiming that Holder was in the process of a hostile takeover of the intelligence community:

Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO) made a rather surprising claim on MSNBC today, suggesting that the Obama Administration's intelligence on the Pakistani Taliban having been behind the failed Times Square bombing was like the Bush Administration's bogus intel on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Bond also claimed that Attorney General Eric Holder has refused to give Bond's intelligence committee the information it requests, and that Holder "has executed a hostile takeover of the intelligence community."

Apparently Holder's techniques are so hostile that Bond could not wake up from this nightmare:
