Is Eric Holder Considering A Presidential Run?

posted on June 22, 2017

Fresh off a new report of obstruction in the Fast and Furious scandal investigation, disgraced former Attorney General Eric Holder is reportedly considering a presidential run.

“Now is the time to be more visible,” Holder told Yahoo News. “Now is the time to be heard. … I thought, frankly, along with everybody else, that after the election, with Hillary Clinton as president, I could walk off the field. So when she didn’t win, I thought, ‘We’ll have to see how this plays out.’ But it became clear relatively soon — and certainly sooner than I expected — that I had to get back on the field and be in effective opposition.”

A Holder run for the presidency would mark what might be the most anti-gun campaign in the country’s history, given that his record on guns is as bad as Hillary Clinton’s. Of course, if he chooses to throw his hat into the ring, we’ll soon be hearing how he “supports the Second Amendment” and other platitudes that nobody will be inclined to believe.
