Eric Holder & DoJ Spent Millions Of Taxpayer Dollars On Unreported Personal Travel

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

As the Attorney General of these United States, Eric Holder is the top legal advisor for the entire nation. As such, he has been in a position to help punish financial criminals and the mega-banks for the crimes they committed in the run-up to the financial crisis, and the egregious looting thereafter.

Despite his unique role, Eric Holder has spent the past five years taking absolutely zero action on any matter of national significance. In fact, his major claim to fame appears to be that he has solidified the creation of a group of untouchable criminals known as the “Too Big to Jail” class.

So what does Eric Holder do in his spare time, you know, when he isn’t coddling financial oligarchs and running firearms into Mexico? Apparently, according to a recent study from the non-partisan Government Accountability Office, he likes to hop on government planes for personal trips at taxpayer expense. Serfs up suckers!

From The Washington Post:

The agency that tracks federal travel did not report hundreds of personal and other “non mission” trips aboard government planes for senior Justice Department officials including Attorney General Eric Holder and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, according to a watchdog report.

 

Congress’s nonpartisan Government Accountability Office determined that the 395 flights cost taxpayers $7.8 million. But the General Services Administration, which oversees trips aboard federal jets, did not require documentation because of a GSA reporting exemption that covers intelligence agencies, even in cases of unclassified personal travel.

 

The findings, released Thursday, came out nearly 19 months after Republican lawmakers began questioning Holder’s use of an FBI jet for travel unrelated to Justice Department work. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, asked the GAO to look into the matter.

 

For security reasons, attorneys general are required to use non-commercial flights when they fly, and they have access to Defense Department jets. However, they must reimburse the government for personal trips.

Oh right, good luck with that. I’m more likely to have dinner with the Easter Bunny tonight.

Full article here.

In the spirit of this article, I suggest watching this classic Eric Holder video clip that I highlighted last year. Enjoy:

If it weren't for a red team-blue team tag team of corruption in CONgress, this farce of an "attorney general" would have had his ass subpoenaed to testify about approximately 18 other scandals, convicted of treason & perjury, and would have had his ass thrown in jail.

It is time for holder to be brought to justice.  Misappropriation of funds is a crime.  Pretty straight forward.

Annoying that a lot of interesting commentators have been banned / run off this site for less, yet you drooling morons remain. 

 

And for the others trying to make this into some partisan dumbassery, guys like Holder are non-partisan. Haven't you tools recognized that yet?

And you're just some beacon of pure intelligent thought?  Suck a dick James.  Holder has proven himself to be a racist and racebaiter with his actions.  I merely point out the fact.

If you're looking for an annoying, drooling moron, you should take a look in the mirror.  Sure Holder is non-partisan like I'm Jesus Christ.

Useless drone huh?  And you've been proven to be one of the most annoying cocksuckers on ZH, to me.  I largely just ignore you, and rarely agree with your train of thought.

Nigger isn't merely a racial comment.  Maybe you should do a little more language studies.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigger

A prime example of calling Holder a nigger would be this reference.  Holder is a "hidden defect", or order taker who doesn't uphold their oath.  A water carrier for others.

Nigger as "defect" (a hidden problem), derives from "nigger in the woodpile", a US slave-era phrase denoting escaped slaves hiding in train-transported woodpiles.[4]

I guess only black people are allowed to use the word.   Is that how it works James?

I'm sorry, I had you all wrong - you were merely using what is generally understood to be a pejorative racist term in an unexpectedly clever / sophisticated way lol

Sir, I salute your hidden + subversive genius, not a single racist intent!

Sarcasm aside, why people with obvious racial - I shall use a pc word to not offend your delicate nature - 'discrimination' issues bend over backward to feign innocence is beyond me..don’t be a pussy - own that shit man. 

I guess only black people are allowed to use the word.   Is that how it works James?

Yes.

I'm an equal opportunity offender.  I don't give a fuck what color, race, or creed you are.  If you're a POS like Holder, I call'em like I see'm.  Feel free to interpret words as you wish.  I intended it with all the definitions which apply.

If only black people can use the word, then isn't that racist by nature?  Hypocrit much?  I guarantee he's used the word as well with his buddies.  I have nothing but utter contempt for our worthless and corrupt AG.  He's failed to uphold his oath, just as Obama has.

Except, these things do matter.

Yes. We be learnin'

If you hate the AG, OK no disagreement but race is totally irrelevant to his performance as AG which is why going all david duke and then pretending you didn't is so inane. 

If zh was inundated with nationalistic Chinese going off about <insert white government official here i.e. ron paul> being crazy ass crackers shitting the bed at their duties it'd probably get tiresome too, no?

Holder has proven race to matter, and disproportionately prosecuting X on black crime and largely ingnoring black on X crime.  The knock out game is a prime example, or the Zimmerman interference.

We can simply agree the AG is a POS and part company.

I have far more contempt for so-called "patriots" out there.

Our only hope is Russia and China eventually taking this govt down.  But we go down with it.

Yes, you are right that Americans are apathetic.

However, the difference in this instance is that Eric Placeholder is charged with a very important job, relating to one of the 3 critical branches of government, to use the extraordinary powers the DOJ possesses in order to ensure that financial and other miscreants are brought to justice for criminal & illicit activity whether the American Public writ large is or isn't paying attention to such things; a role Eric Placeholder has all but completely ignored.

He is a complete disgrace, and in fact, has actively aided & abetted massive financial criminal wrongdoing by not only not bringing charges in hundreds of cases where appropriate, but in announcing that HE WON'T IN THE FUTURE.

Placeholder's 5 year dereliction of duty is worse than millions of so-called patriots' 100 year dereliction of their 2nd amendment duty to dissolve this criminal govt and start over with a constitutional govt?

That's why saving America isn't in the cards.  Hasn't happened in 100 years of massive govt criminality equally bad as what we see now.  Only difference now is internet facilitating people hearing about it and talking about it.  And that's all it is, whining bitching complaining, which hasn't done one single thing to change what this govt is doing. 

I have no hope for America.  My only hope is leaving America at some point, and if that's not doable, I'll just go down with the ship, my life is 3/4 done, had some good years, enough to say my life was worthwhile even if the last 1/4 turns to shit, no problem, I'll just end it.

I dunno... Lincoln, Wilson, and FDR all put Obama to shame. If I were to make a "worst presidents ever list", I would have Lincoln/Wilson/FDR/Nixon/LBJ as the clear top 5.

Also, I wouldn't get your hopes up over "three more years". The next president will probably be even worse than Obama is, as insane as that might sound. There seems to be this trending pattern of each successive president being shittier than the last.
