California Lawmakers Hire Eric Holder to Fight Trump Administration

Regrettably, it seems that Holder will continue to walk free for his crimes. Instead of being summoned to court to give an accounting for his actions during his time with the Obama administration, he has apparently been tapped by liberal California lawmakers to represent the state in what they believe will be legislative battles with the incoming Trump White House. Whether the partisan, patently corrupt Holder will be an asset to their cause is another matter altogether:

“The decision by the Legislature to retain Mr. Holder, who is now a prominent Washington lawyer, is the latest sign of the ideological battle that may play out over the next four years between this predominantly Democratic state and Washington. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate for president, defeated Mr. Trump by more than four million votes here.

“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,” Kevin de León, the Democratic leader of the Senate, said in an interview. “This means we are very, very serious.”

Mr. de León said he expected California to challenge Washington — and defend itself from policies instituted in Washington — on issues including the environment, immigration and criminal justice. He said California Democrats decided to turn to Mr. Holder as they watched Mr. Trump assemble his cabinet and begin to set the tone for his presidency.

“It was very clear that it wasn’t just campaign rhetoric,” Mr. de León said of Mr. Trump’s proposals over the past year. “He was surrounding himself with people who are a very clear and present danger to the economic prosperity of California.”

Mr. Trump did not immediately return requests for comment.”
