Eric Holder Might Have a Perjury Problem

Last week, and while under oath, Attorney General Eric Holder testified before a House committee that when it comes to "try[ing]  to prosecute the press for the publication of material" he has "never been involved in, heard of" such a thing.  Watch below at the five-minute mark:

<a href=";v=AW7GhfOXe5U&amp;list=UUqMici9I7nz_i-PN7eSYjwQ" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">;v=AW7GhfOXe5U&amp;list=UUqMici9I7nz_i-PN7eSYjwQ</a>

Thursday, however,  we learned that it was Holder who signed off on the application for a warrant to gain access to the private emails and phone records of Fox News reporter James Rosen. In doing so, Holder labeled Rosen a co-conspirator to obtain classified material under the Espionage Act of 1917.

Out of one side of his mouth, and while under oath, Holder says he has never heard of anyone trying to prosecute the press for publishing material. Out of the other side of his mouth, Holder is accusing reporters of espionage on applications for subpoenas.

That statement and that action are awfully hard to reconcile.

It is possible for Holder to say that the goal wasn't to prosecute Rosen for "publishing," but instead for espionage. The fact, though, is that all of this occurred after the Rosen story in question published. With even the Huffington Post calling for Holder's resignation, it is hard to see how he splits that is-is hair.

Joe the Plumber has his own website on which he posts comments about the passing parade. Today he states his agreement with the fact Holder lied because, as he puts it, The people in the Obama Administration have gotten a free ride for so long that they apparently believe they can get away with anything.

But even funnier than that is his prediction Holder is soon toast because, Given how Obama works, it wouldn’t exactly be a shocker if he shoved him under the wheels of the bus personally. After all, any man who will backstab his own grandmother to protect Jeremiah Wright isn’t going to put his neck on the line to save Eric Holder. 88finger point

Doesn't it all depend on what "is" is?
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI
