Judge Jeanine Pirro Calls for Indictment of Eric Holder on Multiple Counts

| June 1 2013
David Leeper

On June 1, in one of her most-important-ever “opening statements,” Judge Jeanine Pirro called for indictment of Eric Holder on multiple counts of federal law violations including perjury, making false statements to Congress, aiding and abetting false statements, obstruction, misprision of felony, and conspiracy.

Judge Pirro did not say Holder should be reprimanded, be held in contempt of Congress, be asked to resign, or be fired.

She called for his indictment.

As a former prosecutor and judge, Pirro knows the law and how to build an indictment.  Her outline of the case against Holder should be taken seriously.  A special prosecutor must be named and an indictment sought.  Congress must insist on it.

Eric Holder works for We the People.  We are not his subjects.  He must be held to account.  He is the nation’s chief law enforcer.  If his abuses and those of his DOJ are allowed to stand, a precedent may be set for which there is no recourse.  All Americans, of any party or no party at all, must learn from this case how easily Big Government can become corrupted.

This is shaping up to be the most important confrontation in our lifetime between Big Government and We the People.

I couldn't agree more. I for one will never let this go. David, Judge Jeanine, are so right, This is the Biggest and the Most important confrontation that I have ever seen and I believe there is still a lot more to come out, if only We The People meant All The People!

Judge Jeanine can say more in 7 minutes than POTUS has altogether during his presidency.  Mr. Holder must have some serious dirt on Obama to have such staying power.

There remains the question of how an AG can indict himself (!).  Most likely, he'll resign, get his own attorney, and work on his defense.

 

Even the "Democrat Strategists" on Fox are calling for an indictment.  So Congressional "leaders", like Reid and Pelosi, will likely "pay Holder a visit."  Afterward, he'll talk to Obama and resign "for the good of the country".  Watch for him to seek some form of sympathy, which is always the last refuge of a scoundrel.

 

Then -- he'll be indicted, as well he should be.  There needs to be a landmark, long-lasting message to future AGs.  The AG position is *not* above the law.  When an AG slants justice for political or ideological purposes, he/she will serve time in one of his own prisons.  That applies to the Right as well as the Left.

 @Econ101 You have hit on it, right there. The reason to go after Holder, or Clinton Benghazi, or any of these IRS people, is not about gaining political advantage. If that happens, fine, but that is not the point. The point is the rule of law----reminding future generations that we are a nation of laws, not men. If we (they) fail to do that, or shrink from that duty out of fear (again, a political calculation), then we (they) are failing in our duty to the country.

 @frank obrien Yes, If enough people vote here at Western Free Press, Holder is going down. Spread the word!  :-)

Thanks ... now watch as the squishier Republicans defer, demur, hold back, and rationalize.  Heck, even David Schweikert, one of Congress' most reliably Conservative Reps, by his own admission & recent apology, ignored the cries of Tea Party and other conservative groups that they were being targeted.

 

Naturally, the John McCain types -- the lifetime GOP grandees -- will use soft round words of mild rebuke, wringing their hands, and talking of reconciliation "for the future".  At most they'll talk tough only after the fact when they see others have teken the risk of doing so.  In the meantime, McCain and his ilk will go right on disrespecting Conservatives as "hobbits" and "wacko birds."

 

It's clear that the Dems know they've stepped in it, big time, or they wouldn't be trying so hard to pretend that there's no problem.  If they were honest, they'd come forward and defend their Stalinistic behaviors on solid neo-Marxist, ends-justify-the-means / greater-good philosophical grounds as some of the stalwart clowns on MSNBC have done.  

 

I hope Issa and others keep digging, steadily, with precision and marksmanship. And when they are asked whether indictments or even impeachment should be called for, the GOP good guys should say ever time "We're leaving that to the Democrats." Obama and his whole rotten gang belong to the Democrats -- it's their mess to clean up.  

 

Prosecution should be a secondary priority, and should be led by the Democrats.  The GOP should stay in the education business, declaring: This is what big government brings, America -- every damned time.  These Obama followers are like all the other statists -- their whole damned "forward" thing isn't new -- it's been done before and frankly it's been done better.  (Thank goodness these guys are such incompetent boobs.)

 

And as the scandal widens and deepens, by all means, the GOP should point to the press ... replaying their mistakes ... pointing out the stories they spiked ... over and over and over.  Embarass them thoroughly.  And leave it to them to clean up their mess too.  They didn't just "let us down" -- they betrayed us by covering for the neo-Marxists that invaded every nook & cranny of our Federal govt.

 @Econ101 Yes, I agree---the goal here should be to achieve a specific political objective. Just bringing out the truth is all that is needed!
