California Lawyers Up To Oppose Trump By Hiring Eric Holder

posted on January 6, 2017

The New York Times reported Thursday that former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder has been retained by Democratic leaders of the California legislature to represent the state in anticipated legal battles with the Trump administration. 

“Having the former attorney general of the United States brings us a lot of firepower in order to prepare to safeguard the values of the people of California,” said Kevin de León, the Democratic president pro tempore of the Senate. “This means we are very, very serious.” De León added that he expected California to oppose Trump on immigration, environment and criminal justice issues. 

Holder is now an attorney with the D.C. law firm Covington & Burling. He is known among gun owners for speaking openly of the need to “brainwash” Americans against guns, for advocating to reinstate the Clinton semi-auto rifle ban, and for being the first sitting cabinet official in history to be held in contempt of Congress—for stonewalling the Fast & Furious investigation.
