Eric Holder sends a threatening message to US Attorney John Durham

32

In an op-ed for The Washington Post, which we already referenced here, Eric Holder sent a chilling warning to John Durham. His comments came in the op-ed after he called Attorney General Bill Barr “unfit.”

Holder wrote:

As a former line prosecutor, U.S. attorney, and judge, I found it alarming to hear Barr comment on an ongoing investigation, led by John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, into the origins of the Russia probe. And as someone who spent six years in the office Barr now occupies, it was infuriating to watch him publicly undermine an independent inspector general report — based on an exhaustive review of the FBI’s conduct — using partisan talking points bearing no resemblance to the facts his own department has uncovered.

When appropriate and justified, it is the attorney general’s duty to support Justice Department components, ensure their integrity and insulate them from political pressures. His or her ultimate loyalty is not to the president personally, nor even to the executive branch, but to the people — and the Constitution — of the United States.

Career public servants at every level of the Justice Department understand this — as do leaders such as FBI Director Christopher A. Wray and Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Their fidelity to the law and their conduct under pressure are a credit to them and the institutions they serve.

Others, like Durham, are being tested by this moment. I’ve been proud to know John for at least a decade, but I was troubled by his unusual statement disputing the inspector general’s findings. Good reputations are hard-won in the legal profession, but they are fragile; anyone in Durham’s shoes would do well to remember that, in dealing with this administration, many reputations have been irrevocably lost.

Durham is a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, and Holder is clearly threatening Durham and his future career.

Durham’s statement that Marxist Holder finds troubling is this:

“I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff. However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S. Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”

The Resistance is trying to destroy anyone who dares oppose them.

  1. Correct me is I’m wrong, but can’t Fast a Furious documents be declassified and released to the public now?

    Yeah, Eric, that’s also a threat….

  2. Two words for eric holder, F. U. Don’t ever lecture anyone on ethics or any other points of competence and fairness. You showed your corrupt hand time and time again. You are also in contempt of congress are you not? Looking forward to Mr. Durham’s report shedding light on your mis-deeds shortly.

  3. Love to hear the leftists squack. It means they are very, very afraid. What a delight. Please write some more, Mr. Holder. LMAO

  4. Sounds like Holder has more to fear than he has distaste for Barr and Durham. He also admits in his opinion that he is actually the partisan hack. He knows what went down, and it’s going to regurgitate and bite him as well.

  5. Funny how they speak about the constitution as if they are protecting it when they have been desperately trying to take rights away from the people like freedom of speech and gun rights as well as others … they couldn’t care less about the constitution this is nothing more than using the word constitution to further their agenda… pathetic

  6. Memo to Durham; Send US Marshals to Holder’s home at 0400 hours, break down his door, perp walk him for Fox News cameras and put him in a Supermax under “protective custody”.
    The charge is murder of a Border Patrol Agent with Fast and Furious weapons.

  7. “The Resistance is trying to destroy anyone who dares oppose them.”

    The resistance IS DESTROYING anyone who cares oppose them.

  8. Holder’s getting nervous, Durham’s investigation will eventually lead to his boss and probably him.
    Just let Durham do his stuff..

  9. This is amazing. Eric Holder….held in contempt of Congress…author of Fast and Furious which resulted in the deaths of many Mexicans and at least one American border patrol agent is lecturing us on ethics. Eric Holder….who refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers who stood outside a voting place with baseball bats…is now the messiah of prosecutorial conduct. His hypocrisy is breathtaking. There is a special corner in hell reserved for this man.

  10. Didn’t this guy style himself as Obama’s “wing-man?” Doesn’t that make his above statement, “His or her ultimate loyalty is not to the president personally, nor even to the executive branch, but to the people — and the Constitution — of the United States” a little suspect?

    • Horowitz ‘investigated’ the agencies within the DOJ which perpetrated the “russia, russia, russia” hoax. Politely.
      In his role as IG, his purview is/was asking questions of the perps in such a manner that no verification is needed. He accepted the words of whoever he questioned. He cannot bring any charges, possibly recommend charges, but only if he stumbles across wrongdoing somehow. Apparently.
      IG Horowitz is a swamp critter, he is paid by the agency he is tasked to look into for wrongdoing. Almost guarantees he will find no reason to recommend any charges. He wants to keep his job. Simple.
      Just sayin’.

  11. That Eric “fast and furious” Holder came out of hiding to voice his slanted opinion tells me that Barr/Durham is over the target. And, that target includes the corrupt Holder. Desperation is becoming evident throughout the ranks of the leftists/dims/commies/progressives/et al.
    I’d like to see early morning raids and cuffed perp walks of the whole lot of them. Sorta like the treatment Stone got. On TV. That would be a treat for the geezers like me.
    Just sayin’.

  12. Eric Holder has the credibility of a rat. His tenure as Attorney General is the reason that the FBI became so infected with the corrupted bureaucratic liberal deep state agents. Hopefully Barr and Durham can find the trail of corruption that leads back to Holder and Obama and lock them up.
