Eric Holder Reverses Stance, Says Trump Should Be Indicted

( )- Over the weekend, the only Attorney General ever held in Contempt of Congress said former President Donald Trump should be indicted for inciting the riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Appearing on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Obama’s “wingman” Eric Holder said eventually the Department of Justice will have to decide whether or not to indict Trump.

Host Margaret Brennan asked Holder if he would indict the former president if he was still Attorney General, but Holder skirted the question. Instead, he said there would be “sufficient factual information” and “sufficient proof of intent.”

Holder told Brennan that as “an institutionalist,” his first thought was the former president shouldn’t be indicted “out of concern of how divisive it would be.” But (of course there’s a “but”), with what has been learned since, Holder thinks Trump “probably has to be held accountable.”

Needless to say, the anti-Trumpers at CNN were so excited by Holder’s comments on “Face the Nation,” that CNN brought him on this week to repeat them.

Holder appeared on CNN’s “The Lead” Tuesday where co-anchor Dana Bash was eager to get Holder to help the failing cable channel keep the dream alive.

Bash kicked off the interview by claiming there was a “national conversation” about indicting Trump and asked Holder why he has changed his mind about indicting Trump.

Spoiler alert: There is no “national conversation.”

Holder repeated what he said on “Face the Nation” and told Bash not taking action “against those who tried to foment that coup,” would be just as divisive as indicting Trump.

Asked if he believed Merrick Garland would indict Trump, Holder said the “possibility exists,” adding that he had faith in Garland.

Bash asked Holder if he would indict Trump if he was still AG and Holder again skirted the question, telling Bash that he doesn’t have access to all the evidence.

Not satisfied with his answer, Bash asked if, based on the public record, would he indict Trump. Holder said he would proceed with an indictment if he was “satisfied that the statutory requirements were met” and “necessary intent” was established.
