Eric Holder Under Investigation By House Judiciary Committee For Lying Under Oath

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With the euphoric market once again serving as a much needed distraction from far bigger geopolitical issues, many have forgotten the plethora of scandals the Obama administration has recently found itself engulfed in. This may change shortly, following news that the head of the US Department of Justice, Eric Holder himself, is now being investigated for lying under oath. Will he too receive an extended absence of leave (with pay) after pleading the fifth, or will the circle of lies slowly but surely start to unwind? Of course, in the New Normal it is probably not only expected, but given, that the chief legal enforcer is just a little more equal when it comes to the same justice he is tasked to enforce.

From The Hill:

The House Judiciary Committee is investigating whether Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath during his May 15 testimony on the Justice Department’s (DOJ) surveillance of reporters, an aide close to the matter told The Hill.

 

The panel is looking at a statement Holder made during a back and forth with Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) about whether the DOJ could prosecute reporters under the Espionage Act of 1917.

 

“In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material - this is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy,” Holder said during the hearing.

 

However, NBC News reported last week that Holder personally approved a search warrant that labeled Fox News chief Washington correspondent James Rosen a co-conspirator in a national security leaks case.

 

The panel is investigating whether NBC’s report contradicts Holder’s claim that he had not looked into or been involved with a possible prosecution of the press in a leaks case.

In related news:

"The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that Mark Everson, Commissioner of Internal Revenue from 2003 to 2007, during the Bush administration, visited the White House exactly once while in office. Indeed he felt like he’d “moved to Siberia” so out of the ordinary political loop was he. But Douglas Shulman, Commissioner from 2008 to 2012, during the Obama administration, visited the White House 118 times just in 2010 and 2011. His successor, Steven Miller, also visited “numerous” times."

greyghost said:  "more horse shit for the masses."

Yup.  They will "grill" him, have some good photo ops and video clips, a couple of headlines, angry words with no actions.

Holder will say "I mispoke" or "I wasn't aware that was what you were asking me about specifically" and offer a mea-culpa.

An "I'm sorry", with CONgress slapping him on the wrist with a letter or proclamation. 

Holder and Corzine to laugh about it all over a sumptious lunch paid for by the taxpayers of the nation.

Key figure for impeaching Eric Holder, and indeed for 'legal' restoration of America's Constitutional government, is John Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee - the main person to initiate impeachment of Presidents or Federal Judges too.

But Conyers has already been threatened with death, being murdered just like Judiciary Committee Congressman Sonny Bono was murdered, and Conyers had his own wife criminally charged and imprisoned, as a warning to him to back down.

Detroit's Congressman Conyers had been fooled by Obama. He has long had huge files on America's bribed federal judges, and was planning to act on those files as his fellow black Obama took office, to help some of the thousands of innocent black people inside the US prison gulag of 2.3 million prisoners.

But the US oligarch families moved first, they indicted Conyers' wife, jailed her, and threatened to kill Conyers himself, and Conyers agreed to shut up to save his own life, and leave his fellow black Americans to rot in prison even when innocent. Conyers can do nothing for them except die as a martyr, with the media telling lies about him after he is buried.

Most Americans seem not to know, but Congress really is 'supreme' in the US Constitution, above the Supreme Court. They have the power to remove Presidents for 'Misdemeanors' and remove Supreme Court and all Federal Judges merely for lack of 'good behaviour'. The pivotal person in the entire US Constitution, is really the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

But the US Congress is intimidated and under mass threat of death. Quite a number of Congressman have been killed, including on the Judiciary Committee itself ... which was very useful in threatening John Conyers.

---

Ten notable Congressmen and other US national political figures, all found murdered or suspiciously dead - Senators, Congressmen, Federal Judge, Governor, CIA Director - after questioning corruption or disturbing US oligarch leadership ... since the 1963 JFK assassination

(1-2)
Two Congressmen, Thomas Hale Boggs, Sr, House Majority Leader, along with Alaska Congressman Nick Begich, killed in the same plane crash, 16 October 1972; Boggs was involved in JFK assassination investigation

(3)
Congressman Larry McDonald of Georgia was killed on 1 September 1983, booked onto the Korean airliner that was shot down over the ocean; McDonald had filed bills asking the US Congress to investigate the globalist bodies, the Trilateral Commission and the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations)

(4)
Former US Senator from Texas John Tower, killed in plane crash 5 April 1991, after criticising Reagan-Bush scandals

(5)
William Colby, former director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, found dead 27 April 1996, laughable story he drowned after paddling his canoe by his Maryland weekend house; Colby had made revelations critical of US policies

(6)
Sonny Bono, singer from Sonny & Cher, Congressman on the key House Judiciary Committee, killed 6 January 1998, after gaining position to investigate corruption at America's highest levels, Bono handled files on judicial corruption and the CIA drug trade ... story that excellent skier Sonny went head-on into a tree ... even ex-FBI people say it was murder

(7)
US Missouri Governor Melvin Eugene 'Mel' Carnahan, killed in plane crash 16 October 2000, opponent of vicious US Attorney General John Ashcroft, Carnahan won an election even after being dead

(8)
US Senator Paul Wellstone from Minnesota, killed in plane crash 25 October 2002, after leading opposition to the US Iraq War

(9)
Former US Congressman Wayne Owens from Utah, found dead in Tel Aviv, Israel, 18 December 2002, while investigating the triangle of US-Israeli-Palestinian Authority corruption

(10)
US Federal Judge John Roll shot dead in Tucson, Arizona, 8 January 2011, shortly after ruling against Obama and the US gov't ... drugged up 'lone gunman' promptly supplied, 'confessing' and otherwise barely seen

Paul Wellstone died because he had 2 underqualified pilots flying him around in a King Air in weather they couldnt handle.  Pilot had overstated his qualifications, and had a second job, and was lacking sleep that day.  Co pilot was pretty new to the job, and wasn't in a position to handle the plane in those conditions that day.  I flew charter back then.  New young pilots with low flying time, flying some pretty heavy equipment around in bad weather.  No conspiracy there.  Wellstone should have spent some money and flew with a better charter company.

Cui bono?  A knowledge of human nature and some familiarity with dynamics of power (Machievelli, et al) is all one needs to understand what's going on.  Proper journalism just fills in the details and can be an important aid in connecting the dots.  This is why real critical thinking is discouraged in school and our culture -- it threatens and exposes power centers.

Holder has redefined the word "hack" and will be a historic embarrassment, but in fairness, he only said he would not prosecute a journalist under the espionage act.  The Obama MO has been to screw leakers to the wall, but not actually prosecute journalists.  The Fox reporter's email was raided in hopes of finding the government leaker.

True. But this is where all of Holder's early planning comes into play. During his first year in office he testified that he doesn't read what he signs. He trusts his people, they put a stack of letters in front of him, and he signs them. So we've now arrived at the payoff for this early planning. Old EH isn't responsible (directly) for anything. Of course he's broadly responsible (just like Obama) but not when it comes to any details. He's just as shocked as everyone else and he's going to look into it. Any day now I expect to see John Mitchell rise from the grave so he can bow to the master.

Sadly, it is always this way, crooks investigating /and killing/ crooks. When they steal money from each other is when the proberbial SHTF... When they abuse the sheeple and us, nobody gives a damm and nothing has ever happened. History is a great guide on what is happening and what will come...

Facial hair is a dead give away.  I liken this to women who wears a lot of make-up.  There are issues lurking beneath all of that cover up.

Glad to hear it. I was starting to feel bad about my biker beard. Maybe I was Charlie Manson's younger brother or something.

A mustachio is a lot of trouble, but a beard--that just denotes a guy who's too lazy to shave--or steal.  It's a guy thing--Obama wouldn't understand.

Exactly, to all points.

Now, on the other hand, one has to distinguish between REAL facial hair and effete, hyper-pruned facial topiaries, like Eric Holder's "Clark Gable" moustache ---- that kind of affectation is even worse than being clean-shaven.

I was being facetious about the facial hair but not the make-up though.  There must have been a study done on this but surely not sponsored by Maybelline.

You can lie big, BIG as Bush and Cheney, who did not testify before the panel under oath and
there was no recording made of the session, about 9/11, and that's ok no matter the atrocities you've performed.

But if you take the oath, ah! THEN you can be investigated!

I simply can't put it in words. No, wait, I can. It's a Parody of Justice.

I write the following completely as a methaphor and not in any way in the promotion of any violence. From the movie Gladiator:


Commodus: How dare you show your back to me! Slave, you will remove your helmet and tell me your name.

Maximus: [removes helmet and turns around to face Commodus] My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

[Commodus trembles in disbelief]

 

I ain't no slave, that I can assure you.
