Eric Holder, Wall Street Double Agent, Comes in From the Cold

RollingStone has the article Eric Holder, Wall Street Double Agent, Comes in From the Cold. It has the subhead of:

Barack Obama’s former top cop cashes in after six years of letting banks run wild

The article shows the following interview of Matt Taibi on Democracy Now.

This all came to my attention with an email from Credo Action. The main points of that email are in the petition on their web site Tell Congress: Subpoena Eric Holder’s communication with his corporate law firm. There are references to their sources of information in the petition. Here is an excerpt from their explanation.

Worse, it was just reported that the firm, Covington & Burling, has kept an empty 11th floor corner office for Holder awaiting his return. Combined with Holder’s purchase a year ago of a $1.5 million condo just 300 feet from his new office raises serious questions about how long Holder knew he would be getting a major payday from his old firm even while it continued to represent companies under Department of Justice investigation. If the firm and Holder agreed on a future job offer, that alone could violate criminal laws

Now you get a hint as to why Obama is pushing this awful “trade” deal, called TPP despite the majority of Democrats in Congress being dead set against it. I wonder where Obama is going to work when he leaves office. This is the type of behavior we saw from Bill Clinton when he went along with the Republicans to eliminate the Glass-Steagall regulations despite the efforts of the Democrats’, in Congress at that time, to stop him

If you think you want Hillary Clinton as our next president, either you are not paying attention, or you are purposely not looking. If she gets into office and pulls stunts like her husband and Barack Obama have, then don’t come whining to me about how you didn’t know.

I hear talk about how it would be historic for Hillary to be the first woman President. Is that the kind of history we want for this country? The first woman President and more crooked than any male President before her. Just like Obama is going to go down in history as the first black President, and more crooked than any white predecessor.
