Former Attorney General Holds Hillary Clinton Fundraiser Despite Ongoing FBI Criminal Probe
Submitted by Tyler Durden
Before he was quietly advised last year by his superior that the time to “quit” has finally come after a career filled with gaffe after gaffe, former US Attorney General Eric Holder was best known for not prosecuting big banks due to his concern they were “Too Big To Prosecute“, clearly ignoring the optics (and reality) that this would also makes it seem that when it comes to breaking the law, banks are more powerful than the United States itself.
Fast forward one year, when the same Eric Holder, and former Attorney General, makes headlines of a different sort. As the Hill reports, Holder will headline a “lawyers for Hillary” fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on May 31.
Available tickets for the fundraiser, which takes place May 31, range from $500 to $2,700, according to Clinton’s campaign website. “Young lawyer” tickets, priced at $250, were sold out as of early Sunday afternoon. Actress Julianna Margulies (who played a political spouse betrayed by her husband) will also attend the fundraiser.
An invitation for the event posted on Hillaryclinton.com reads, “Please join Lawyers for Hillary and Eric H. Holder, Jr., 82nd Attorney General of the United States and Julianna Margulies for an evening with Hillary.”
The surreal irony of it all hardly needs no explanation. This is how the Weekly Standard puts it: “the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton continues, but that isn’t stopping the former head of the Department of Justice from holding a fundraiser for the Democratic presidential candidate.
As a reminder, the FBI – which is still probing Hillary – is part of the DOJ, which in turn is headed by Loretta Lynch. She got her first prominent public appointment in 1999 when she was nominated by President Bill Clinton to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.
We note all this just in case someone still believes that Hillary is not “Too Powerful To Prosecute.”
