I pray they throw the book at Holder. His abuse of power is obvious and the fact that he has targeted conservatives, especially gun businesses, at every turn is outrageous. I’m not holding my breath though. I’ve yet to see any real teeth being sunk into these corrupt officials. Nevertheless, Congress just notified Eric Holder of hearings over Operation Choke Point and it may just be the beginning. Because if these hearings produce any traction at all, look for others to start lining up and a cell with Eric Holder’s name on it being readied at some comfy minimum security resort. He looks terrible in orange, so I’m sure something in line with Middle Eastern garb will be provided. I hope payback is a bitch – Holder gives corruption a bad name.
If outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder thought that tendering his resignation to President Barack Obama would be all it took to get him off the hook for six years of irregularities in the Department of Justice, he had another thing coming.
Rep. Sean Duffy, the new chair of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee, has planned hearings into the DOJ’s Operation Choke Point starting early in February.
And his subcommittee may not be the only one.
Duffy told Fox News last week that the operation, originally targeted at shutting down fraudulent business practices by targeting the businesses’ ability to obtain credit, has been altered by the Obama administration into a tool to be used against any business of which the administration does not approve.
“What they’ve done is they put short-term lenders out of business, gun dealers out of business, ammunition manufacturers out of business,” Duffy said. “Because in America, if you can’t bank, you can’t do business.”
