Attorney General Holder Hospitalized

by Keith Koffler on February 27, 2014, 12:28 pm

Updated 2:41 pm ET.

From the Department of Justice.

During his regular morning meeting with senior staff, the Attorney General began experiencing symptoms including faintness and shortness of breath.

As a precaution, the Attorney General was taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center to undergo further evaluation. He is currently resting comfortably and in good condition. He is alert and conversing with his doctors. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

I will update you as I get more information.

UPDATE: Holder has been released from the hospital and is resting at home.

I honestly wish him a speedy recovery. Sounds like stress, was he scheduled to testify soon? Team Issa ready to pounce ?

Scottso February 27, 2014 at 12:42 pm

I wish him well too.
Despite being someone I detest, we should never sink to a level of wanting our political ‘enemies’ (a term the President uses) to be harmed.

Although, is it too much to ask that he is forced to retire?
On the other hand…who would be the awful candidate to replace him?

srdem65 February 27, 2014 at 12:42 pm

I agree: stress***** with a red-light flashing-sign to change his ways or else. As awful as it sounds, a warning is a good thing and I hope he makes a full recovery.

Star February 27, 2014 at 12:45 pm

Same–I would never wish bad health on anyone.

Shofar February 27, 2014 at 12:54 pm

Could this be the Hillary, I hit my head so I can’t testify, excuse?

I had a heart scare so I can’t testify before Congress for at least 3 more years and a pardon?

DeniseVB February 27, 2014 at 2:08 pm

First thing I thought of, HRC’s medical “spell” that forced her to cancel her Benghazi testimony until AFTER the 2012 election.

Julie Brueckheimer February 27, 2014 at 2:31 pm

I thought maybe the black pastors had upset him.

AFVet February 27, 2014 at 4:40 pm

I think that the walls are closing in on all of them.

Lee February 27, 2014 at 5:17 pm

I respect your thoughts, I do not think so at this point.

Otis Driftwood February 27, 2014 at 8:34 pm

As we all have said am glad he is ok, but this also could be his ticket out the door as AG due to future health issues.

65andcounting February 27, 2014 at 1:19 pm

I hope his ObamaCare application was accepted so that his hospital treatment is covered!

Elaine February 27, 2014 at 1:58 pm

He doesn’t have to worry about Obamacare rules as he is one of the elite with a gold plan of health care, funded by the taxpayer.

Lee February 27, 2014 at 4:17 pm

After he recovers he should sit and chat with all the people who lost their previous plan, lost their job, are cannot afford the O Crud.
I apologize if Keith and the my fellow readers are getting tired of me typing that.
I think all the news media should have that scrolled all day long on their screenl.
These were innocent hard working citizens who got ______!

Girly1 February 27, 2014 at 1:25 pm

A guilty conscience can place additional stress on the heart. Just sayin’.

Star February 27, 2014 at 1:37 pm

So now the karma killers start…

Girly1 February 27, 2014 at 2:27 pm

As well as the ‘free speech’ opponents…

Julie Brueckheimer February 27, 2014 at 2:40 pm

Touche!

Star February 27, 2014 at 3:21 pm

I am not stopping you–I am just saying it makes you sound mean. The karma thing won’t be rebounding on me. If you have never been in an ER, had a heart attack, had a panic attack, well, you are lucky.

Girly1 February 27, 2014 at 3:47 pm

With all due respect, Star, I refuse to spar with you …now, or in the future.

Star February 27, 2014 at 4:06 pm

Fine with me–didn’t you already say that a few days ago? I can, of course, still express my views.

Pjof February 27, 2014 at 1:39 pm

“He is resting comfortably and conversing with his (cowardly) doctors…about race…”

Elaine February 27, 2014 at 1:56 pm

Guess all that stress of being a pathological liar has taken its toll.

Unlike others, I hope this incident wakes him up to reality but more importantly, to the truth that humans aren’t immortal and their souls are more important than their politics.

Julie Brueckheimer February 27, 2014 at 2:32 pm

I wish him no ill, but it would be nice if it foretold a retirement in the making.

AFVet February 27, 2014 at 4:57 pm

I don’t see him retiring Julie,…rather I see the the administration using this incident as just another diversion to use to divert the attention from the important issues that the Country needs to dwell on.
Hillary fell down and hit her head.
Holder essentially did the same thing.

Darkangel February 27, 2014 at 2:13 pm

I’m surprised Holder even HAS a heart.

techie February 27, 2014 at 2:47 pm

Hospital performs brain scan, and they found absolutely nothing.
Holder was just released.

William in CA February 27, 2014 at 2:50 pm

Someone slipped him an advance copy of Lois Lerner’s upcoming testimony

Knuckledragingwino February 27, 2014 at 2:51 pm

May be the hospital will be Holder’s roach hotel?

Roaches check in, but they don’t check out.

veritaseequitas February 27, 2014 at 3:04 pm

Maybe he was having a crisis of conscience that morphed into an anxiety attack.

Lee February 27, 2014 at 4:22 pm

Maybe he was thinking of becoming one of the hero’s I was speaking of the other day. One person to come out with all the ugly mess that has been happening. If that were the case maybe he got a phone call from someone that told him not to even think about being a hero, and that caused his faintness, and shortness of breath.

veritaseequitas February 27, 2014 at 5:15 pm

Yeah, maybe George Soros called him up and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Martha Trowbridge February 27, 2014 at 4:07 pm

As if ‘resting at home’ will quell his appropriate panic attacks.

srdem65 February 27, 2014 at 4:25 pm

They sent him home to rest? ha. We all know what happens next; he’ll go back to the hospital soon to be poked, proded, scoped, jabbed,and x-rayed as they try to determine if there’s anything serious going on.

AZ Granny February 27, 2014 at 5:18 pm

Fancy that, Holder was in and out of the ER/hospital in less time than it takes many of us to even check in. As must as I detest what he and BO are doing to our country, I wish him well.
