Eric Holder vs. Louis Gohmert

Eric Holder speaking at the National Action Network...
Holder touted the work of the Obama administration to “advance the cause of justice,” and said that they’ve managed to succeed “even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” He pointed to his treatment yesterday (not mentioning Gohmert by name) as an example.   See the video below highlighting that exchange!

Per Mr. Holder:
“And if you don’t believe that… you look at the way the Attorney General of the Untied States was treated yesterday by a House committee.   Had nothing to do with me, forget that.   What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?   What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”

Holder faced a testy House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on Tuesday, during which the attorney general engaged in a heated back-and-forth with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), who brought up the House holding Holder in contempt, and Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) wouldn’t question Holder because, the lawmaker implied, he
should be in jail.
