Jill Lawrence wants to know if this is “the end” for Eric Holder:

The attorney general has been in the middle of controversies over whether to shut down Guantanamo Bay prison and whether to try suspected terrorists in U.S. courts. He has defended the U.S. right to wage drone strikes, to stage the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, and to use lethal force against a leader of al-Qaida who was also U.S. citizen.

He also was a lightning rod for conservative complaints about Fast and Furious, a federal sting that allowed U.S. weapons to fall into the hands of suspected gun smugglers on the theory that they could then be tracked to Mexican drug cartels. Instead, hundreds of the guns went missing, and many of them have been linked to crimes. One of them was the December 2010 killing of Brian Terry, a border patrol agent.

Lawrence says it’s “unclear how Holder fits into the latest firestorm.”

But isn’t that the problem here? We have a four-year-old running history of increasing lawlessness and abuses of power, either at the behest of, or right under the nose of our nation’s chief law enforcement officer.

He should have been gone a long time ago, and it’s shameful that the press began to pay real attention only once they’d found out the AG had gone after one of its own.

Holder is DOJ - Who's going to prosecute him?

She forgot about the voting rights section. Though that's not Holder's fault - it's the liberal subculture that exists throughout the Federal bureaucracy. Not all civil servants are part of it, but it's definitely there.

Does this article presume that Holder is doing anything other than what Obama has instructed him to do? If he is removed from office he will be replaced with another minion that will follow the same orders.

What's needed is to replace the person giving those orders...

Is Holder less subject to meaningful scrutiny if he remains where he is vs if he were to no longer hold his post? He sure is valuable to Obama in the role he has been playing.

Holder is also in contempt of Congress, but the DOJ refuses to prosecute him as it would any other citizen.

Under Holder, the DOJ has single-handedly destroyed the Rule of Law in this country. Time for him to resign and face trial.
