Girding for four years of potential battles with President-elect Donald J. Trump, Democratic leaders of the California Legislature announced Wednesday that they had hired Eric H. Holder Jr., who was attorney general under President Obama, to represent them in any legal fights against the new Republican White House.

The decision by the Legislature to retain Mr. Holder, who is now a prominent Washington lawyer, is the latest sign of the ideological battle that may play out over the next four years between this predominantly Democratic state and Washington. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate for president, defeated Mr. Trump by more than four million votes here.

I think it's fitting this is happening in California because if it were put in a Hollywood movie it may seem unbelievable. Who could have envisioned something such as this happening a year ago?

Can anyone argue that it doesn't matter who the POTUS is anymore? If this news doesn't epitomize how different the Trump administration will be compared with the Obama administration, I don't know what ever could.

Obama supporters should be pleased to know that hope isn't dead in America for them. Eric Holder can help to uphold their values of...

Attempting to brazenly and unashamedly break the law?

Maybe they plan to sell guns to the Mexican cartels to keep their economy afloat after they secede?

Holder has the experience in that area.

No its a sign how corrupt California lawmakers are. I know, I live in this bureaucratically melted hell hole.

Eric holder? The same guy who was in contempt of Congress by not addressing the gun running operation he had to supply mexican cartels with weapons. Which ended up in the death of border patrol agents? Great pick!

He will fold or backout of his position once he understands that without obama to cover his bs hes not going to accomplish much.

Looks like California is anticipating lots of federal lawsuits.

if they spent more time and money enforcing the laws and less time and money trying to get away with breaking the laws maybe the state would be a better place.
How can they expect their citizens to obey the laws when they (the state government) themselves are breaking laws.

States do not have the right to grant US visa/citizenship.

Makes sense.... Split it up, grant Northern Cali independence... then invade them and take it back. Would make firing all the liberal officials there much each easier.

Excuse me? I'm hearing "State's rights" here and someone who should be for State's Rights bitching that the federal government won't listen to a State.

California is the sixth largest economy in the world. It is more likely, in the very unlikely situation, that if CA succeeds that the US economy would crash and California would go on just fine after a few economic hiccups. It helps when the state holds most of the country's BEST agricultural land and takes up near the entire western coast of the country.

Typical. Conservative supports political overthrow/suppression when faced with dissenting political opinions.

Lol, ok mate.
Happy New year.

What I really think is that Holder should already be in jail, so I am sure there is plenty to go on to put him where he belongs.
