I’m telling you when they start acting stupid and having trouble remembering they are planning an exit from the scene as quickly as possible. Like rats, they know when the ship is sinking. Holder realizes this could get troublesome. If he says one thing to Congress, knowing it is an untruth, he can get a Scooter Libby kind of penalty. If he acts dumb and says he doesn’t know, the worse he can be charged with is being forgetful.
Here is a short montage of his “I don’t knows“.
This is simple he is smart enough to not get caught lying to the point where his liberal bent and his race cannot protect him any longer. So far those two have offered him a large blanket of protection, but it has to end somewhere. Holder is a firm believer racism is everywhere, almost to the point of a mania. That will be his first defense if he is run to the ground over this.
As the nation’s top law enforcement official, Eric Holder is privy to all kinds of sensitive information. But he seems to be proud of how little he knows.
Why didn’t his Justice Department inform the Associated Press, as the law requires, before pawing through reporters’ phone records?
“I do not know,” the attorney general told the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday afternoon, “why that was or was not done. I simply don’t have a factual basis to answer that question.”
Why didn’t the DOJ seek the AP’s cooperation, as the law also requires, before issuing subpoenas?
“I don’t know what happened there,” Holder replied. “I was recused from the case.”
Why, asked the committee’s chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), was the whole matter handled in a manner that appears “contrary to the law and standard procedure”?
“I don’t have a factual basis to answer the questions that you have asked, because I was recused,” the attorney general said.
On and on Holder went: “I don’t know. I don’t know. . . . I would not want to reveal what I know. . . . I don’t know why that didn’t happen. . . . I know nothing, so I’m not in a position really to answer.”
Holder seemed to regard this ignorance as a shield protecting him and the Justice Department from all criticism of the Obama administration’s assault on press freedoms. But his claim that his “recusal” from the case exempted him from all discussion of the matter didn’t fly with Republicans or Democrats on the committee, who justifiably saw his recusal as more of an abdication.
The smart thing is he will resign and Congress will lose interest in him. They don’t want to arrest and prosecute the black guy anymore than Holder wants to go to jail.
It is that simple.
