It’s official – Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder wants to challenge Trump… he’s considering running against President Trump in 2020.
From Washington Examiner:
Holder has challenged Trump in the past as well.
Holder wrote [in a tweet]: “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party.”
“ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office. If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both. The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative.”
The tweet comes a day after the Trump campaign sought to discredit Mueller’s investigation by sending a letter to Congress alleging members of the transition team’s Fourth Amendment rights against illegal search and seizure had been violated.
The special counsel’s office obtained tens of thousands of emails from the Trump transition team through the General Services Administration. The Trump campaign argued the government is not the rightful owner of the emails, instead the holders of the accounts are the owners.
The special counsel’s office argued it went through the proper channels to obtain the emails, likely asking the GSA to turn over the documents.
Holder joins a chorus of calls for impeachment if Trump acts to impede Mueller’s investigation in any substantial way before the holidays.
On Friday, Rep. Jackie Spier—one of the first to spill the “rumor on the Hill”—said that should Trump go through with the unconfirmed rumor, Spier said an attempt to impeach him would be forthcoming.
