Eric Holder says Barr “not fit to lead DOJ”


President Obama’s former self-proclaimed “wingman” and Attorney General, Eric Holder, has broken his silence about the Mueller investigation, and the way current Attorney General William Barr summarized the report.

Holder, who has been found in contempt by the Republican-led House of Representatives in 2012 over the failed Fast and Furious gun program, believes that Barr “deliberately misrepresented the Mueller report,” adding that Barr is “protecting the president” and is “not fit to lead the DOJ.”

When the U.S. House of Representatives voted 255-67 (17 Democrats included) in favor of finding him in criminal contempt of Congress, Holder lashed out, calling the vote “good political theater” and a “grave disservice to the American people.”

Fast forward seven years, and a recent vote in the House Judiciary Committee to make a formal recommendation to hold Barr in contempt for not complying with a subpoena to release a full, unredacted Mueller report, is being called a “political circus” by non-other than Barr himself.

“It’s part of the usual game, you know, political circus that’s being played out. It doesn’t surprise me,” said Barr on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

Did Barr and Holder compare notes?
