Is anyone else a little concerned when the attorney general of the United States, a man with vast investigative powers at his disposal, tells a news organization what he thinks it should be publishing?
Eric Holder is apparently displeased that the Daily Caller is regularly updating its list of lawmakers who think it’s time for him to make an exit, mainly over the Fast and Furious scandal. He thinks the list itself – and not Eric Holder himself – is causing people to sign onto it.
From the Daily Caller:
As Holder’s aide was escorting the attorney general offstage following his remarks Tuesday afternoon at the White House, a Daily Caller reporter introduced himself and shook Holder’s hand. The reporter asked him for a response to the growing chorus of federal legislators demanding his resignation.
Holder stepped towards the exit, then turned around, stepped back toward the reporter, and sternly said:
In case you’re not aware, the FBI resides within the Justice Department. Let’s hope Mr. Holder doesn’t do anything stupid. Or rather, anything more stupid.
