The announcement of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation today has fueled speculation as to why the controversial figure has chosen to step down.
Holder, who was recently found to be the least popular politician in the United States according to a Hart Research poll, is arguably the most criminal government official within the Obama Administration. Among his many crimes, a select few have remained at center stage.
Fast and Furious
Between 2006 and 2011, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), under the direct command of the Justice Department, secretly pushed southern gun dealers to sell weapons to suspected drug cartel traffickers in order to allegedly track the weapons into Mexico.
Despite the administration’s attempt to paint the countless deaths associated as unintended consequences after the program went public,documents obtained by CBS News revealed that the ATF had planned to use the deaths to push a gun control agenda.
Eric Holder, who has publicly stated his desire to “brainwash” children to think negatively about gun ownership, has actively worked to keep Fast and Furious documents from becoming public. Unfortunately for Holder, a judge has denied his request to delay the release of a list of Operation Fast and Furious documents currently being protected under the President’s assertion of executive privilege.
Too Big to Jail Banks
After British-based bank HSBC was found to be laundering hundreds of millions of dollars for Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel and groups linked to Al Qaeda, Eric Holder refused to prosecute the bank’s executives.
“They violated every g*ddamn law in the book,” said attorney and former Senate investigator Jack Blum at the time. “They took every imaginable form of illegal and illicit business.”
