Sol Wisenberg, the former Deputy Independent Counsel under Ken Starr, fired off a late-Sunday night tweet that destroyed Obama Attorney General Eric Holder for attacking Attorney General William Barr as “not fit to lead the DOJ”.
Fox News contributor Solomon Wisenberg appears on cable, broadcast and radio to offer legal commentary.

Wisenberg called out Holder’s corrupt behavior in office from his service in the Obama presidency, including the Fast and Furious gun running to Mexican cartels scandal, to his tenure as Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration and his shepherding of the pardon for fugitive Marc Rich whose ex-wife Denise was a major Clinton donor (“Denise Rich had given more than $1 million to Clinton’s political party (the Democratic Party), including more than $100,000 to the Senate campaign of the president’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and $450,000 to the Clinton Library foundation during Clinton’s time in office.

Wisenberg nuked Holder, concluding by throwing his insult of Barr back in Holder’s face.
“You: swore falsely under oath in Fast & Furious and dared not name a Special Counsel; failed to name a Special Counsel in the IRS targeting scandal; failed to prosecute key players in the mortgage meltdown; aided and abetted the Marc Rich pardon. You sir, were unfit to lead DOJ.”
Holder’s attack on Barr that brought the response from Wisenberg:
“AG Barr has deliberately misrepresented the Mueller report. He has started examinations of the conduct of Intell/FBI personnel without a predicate-for political reasons. He is protecting the President. He does not stand up for the good people he leads. He is not fit to lead DOJ.”
