Attorney General Eric Holder – the first and only sitting Cabinet member in 225 years to be cited for contempt of Congress – has  politicized the United States Department of Justice to the breaking point.  
Shortly after a Florida jury found George Zimmerman innocent of murder on Saturday night, Holder announced that DOJ would conduct a criminal civil rights investigation.  
The FBI had previously conducted a lengthy investigation that found  no evidence that Trayvon Martin’s death stemmed from racial motives.

Disregarding the Florida jury and the FBI, Holder is prolonging a deeply unjust and unwarranted investigation in response to demands from Rev. Al Sharpton and his ilk.
Holder has no legal grounds on which to stand. The federal government’s limited constitutional powers do not extend to commonplace murders, whose prosecution is the job of the states.

I thought this part was definitely interesting:

Holder’s prosecutorial practices evidence a pattern of leniency towards high-ranking corporate officers in a position to make substantial campaign contributions or with close ties to the Democratic Party.  
Consider that in the five years since the beginning of the nation’s financial crisis in 2008. Holder’s Justice Department has brought no high-ranking executives or managers in the financial sector to trial for criminal conduct.
This is despite the fact that millions of Americans lost their homes, and investors incurred hundred of billions of dollars in losses, because of alleged high-level wrongdoing by banks and lenders.  
In one financial scandal, Holder’s Justice Department  dropped criminal charges against Jon Corzine, a wealthy financial speculator who had been Democrat Senator and then Governor of New Jersey and the CEO of the bankrupt brokerage firm MF Global.  
Corzine was accused of stealing $1 billion in customer funds that had supposedly been placed in “segregated” accounts in his firm.  We are asked to believe that Corzine’s Democratic Party connections – which included Wall Street fundraising for President Obama - had nothing to do with Holder’s decision not to prosecute him.  
Holder’s Department also decided not to try criminal charges against the high ranking executives apparently responsible for the devastating BP oil spill. Instead, the Department settled its case in 2012 by accepting a guilty plea and a fine from the corporation itself, rather than from those who ran it.  The Department brought criminal charges against a low-level BP executive and two rig supervisors. Even Robert Reich, who served in President Bill Clinton’s Cabinet, objected that Holder had let the “real criminals” get away.  
When it comes to the administration’s media adversaries, however, Holder’s Department has gone from passive to aggressive. On the basis of a false affidavit, it obtained a warrant to spy on James Rosen, a respected Fox News reporter.  
To catch another leaker, the Justice Department violated its own regulations and went on a fishing expedition through the communications of the Associated Press’s editors and reporters.  
The constitutional rights that the Obama administration claims to worry so much about in the Zimmerman-Martin case did not seem to give DOJ a minute’s pause when the First Amendment right to a free press was involved.
Professional standards were also cast aside in favor of political demands by Holder’s decision to pursue CIA agents who had interrogated suspected terrorists overseas.  
Then, as now with Zimmerman, Holder disingenuously claimed merely to be following “the facts and the law.”  Holder ignored the fact, however, that seasoned, professional federal prosecutors had already examined charges of CIA misconduct, carried out an investigation, and concluded that there was no basis for a prosecution.
Holder’s  skewed enforcement of the criminal laws mirrors  the Obama administration’s general disdain for the rule of law.

Holder should be impeached, not resign.  Just like his boss.  Just like his boss's predecessor.

Ain't gonna happen because the government is utterly corrupt, and has been for quite some time.

Ha ha very funny....

I usually don't like to listen to mainstream media, including Fox but they do have a couple of good stories sometimes. Besides, I'd rather watch Fox then MSNBC any day of the week.....

I like FOX. I agree with a lot of their commentators but you have to be able to discern from the news they are reporting and the opinions they are giving and it is most important that you learn to form your own opinions and not parrot theirs.

That is very true....

But when it comes down to which news source, that is mainstream, I prefer Fox over the all the others.

I could care less. Remember Alberto Gonzalez, Bush's Attorney General? He and Holder are just the same, over reaching authority, ignorance,
etc.. What comes around goes around.
