Eric Holder Lashes Out at Trump For Calling on DOJ to Investigate FBI Campaign Spies

Former Attorney General Eric ‘Fast and Furious’ Holder lashed out at Trump on Monday after the President called on the DOJ to investigate the FBI’s infiltration of his 2016 campaign.

The Deep State corruptors and criminals have come unhinged since Trump called on the Justice Department to investigate Obama’s illegal spy campaign.

Trump tweeted Sunday: I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

The most corrupt Attorney General in US history, Eric Holder came out swinging and called Trump’s move “dangerous” and a threat to our democracy.

We have never seen members of the prior administration protest the current administration like this; it is unprecedented.

Holder tweeted: Trump demand for DOJ investigation is dangerous/democracy threatening. DOJ response is disappointing.There is no basis/no predicate for an http://inquiry.It ’s time to stand for time honored DOJ independence.That separation from White House is a critical part of our system.

Perhaps Eric Holder should take his own advice because in 2011, on Obama’s orders the DOJ stopped defending the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA):

CBS reported in 2011, President Obama has instructed the Justice Department to no longer defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, the legal prohibition on federal recognition of same-sex marriages.

Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that the  department will stop defending the policy because it has now been challenged in the Second Circuit, “which has no established or binding standard for how laws concerning sexual orientation should be treated.”

On Sunday evening, hours after Trump’s tweet, the Justice Department asked Inspector General Horowitz to investigate whether there was “impropriety or political motivation” into the FBI’s infiltration of Trump’s campaign.

Rep. Mark Meadows and other members of the Freedom Caucus turned up the heat on the Deep State and demanded Rosenstein hand over pertinent, unredacted documents because the DOJ cannot be trusted to investigate themselves.
