It looks like Holder may be replaced.

BALTIMORE (CBSDC) — Attorney General Eric Holder might not be sticking around for a second term.

Holder told law school students at the University of Baltimore School of Law that he does not know if he will stay in his job.

“That’s something that I’m in the process now of trying to determine,” Holder said. “I have to think about, can I contribute in a second term?”

Holder says he needs to sit down with his family and President Obama to see if he wants to continue on the job.

Maybe he needs time to shop around for a good defense attorney, you know, one that will take his case.

Obama will just pardon him. I doubt Holder would go down alone.

He should be replaced and then put on trial and then sent to jail.
This guy is as corrupt as the day is long.

If the administration is looking for someone less partisan, less biased than Holder, may I make a suggestion?

Well, it would be easier if Holder left by his own accord but he won't survive 4 years more, trying to dodge things like his gun running program into Mexico. A fair argument can be made, base don known evidence or the lack of it, whether anyone above him knew all about it. This isn't about that. Holder WAS where that bloody buck stops when it's people under his direct command who were involved. So, personally, I do want to see him resign rather than be hounded out. The nation needs healing now, more than ever.

I don't really care who replaces him if they're qualified and not more ideologically based than legal focused for that position. Perhaps we can even hope to try something radically new and shockingly different. like..perhaps..someone with law enforcement experience in the position of America's top cop. Politicians and lawyers have held that post for several administrations now.....and it's caused more trouble than anything.

When they aren't ordering the seizure of children at gun point in a Miami suburb, they're finding ways to justify torture, passing regulations to hack away at our rights or more recently, becoming so selective in the enforcement of black and white published law that the whole concept comes into question.

No more lawyers for awhile. I think the nation has about had enough legalese and legal loophole living all around for quite some time.

i think he is thinking about leaving because of this suit alot bad press for obama

This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains.

The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector.

Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters.

Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his children were killed under very suspicious circumstances.

It seems that the murder happened first and then the page was removed later.

According to mainstream accounts the children’s nanny is responsible for the murders, allegedly stabbing both children.

However, those same mainstream news sources report the highly unlikely story that the nanny slit her own throat just after committing the homicides.

Police have released very little information and although a wider plot has not been officially implicated, it seems very possible that these murders are a show of force against the press organization for releasing such damning information about the most powerful people in the world.

Here is some more information about the lawsuit from the Wall Street Journal:

“In the District Court lawsuit, Spire Law Group, LLP — on behalf of home owner across the Country and New York taxpayers, as well as under other taxpayer recompense laws — has expanded its mass tort action into federal court in Brooklyn, New York, seeking to halt all foreclosures nationwide pending the return of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000.00) by the “Banksters” and their co-conspirators, seeking an audit of the Fed and audits of all the “bailout programs” by an independent receiver such as Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the TARP program who has stated that none of the TARP money and other “bailout money” advanced from the Treasury has ever been repaid despite protestations to the contrary by the Defendants as well as similar protestations by President Obama and the Obama Administration both publicly on national television and more privately to the United States Congress.

Because the Obama Administration has failed to pursue any of the “Banksters” criminally, and indeed is actively borrowing monies for Mr. Obama’s campaign from these same “Banksters” to finance its political aspirations, the national group of plaintiff home owners has been forced to now expand its lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and intentional violations of the Iranian Nations Sanctions and Embargo Act by the national banks included among the “Bankster” Defendants. “

Some of the alleged conspirators are Attorney General Holder, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris, Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Robert Rubin (former Treasury Secretary and Bankster), Timothy Geitner, Treasury Secretary, Vikram Pandit (recently resigned and disgraced Chairman of the Board of Citigroup), Valerie Jarrett (a Senior White House Advisor), Anita Dunn (a former “communications director” for the Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign), as well as the “Banksters” themselves, and their affiliates and conduits.

I think that lawsuit is quite a stretch and I look at the bottom of names too. I don't have any particular problem with who is on it, but there is an administration's worth missing from it too. It's by no means making relaitve comparisons because where TARP is concerned, a large % of that remained unspent and Obama's administration made very public demands that Bush not spend another they could how they saw fit. Both would be equally why one listed in an actual court action and not the other? Hmm.

I'd also note... there is absolutely nothing "hidden" or sneaky about TARP figures. Transparency in government may be as much an oxymoron as military intelligence in most ways, but TARP reporting has been among the open public documents like much of the financial side.

Monthly Report to Congress - August 2012

The numbers seemed to balance to me and a great many have paid their money back. It shows there who, how and when things were loaned and paid in full. A large number were also ..well, co-opt'ed by Government is about the only way I can put it. The debt was converted to preferred stock and reminds me of the 'offer you can't refuse' approach. That too is clearly there in the report. I don't see what the suit alleges tho.. not for that?

43 trillion? Umm... They do realize that figure only exists in the world of digital computing and no actual amount that size has a real form to pay, right? I mean they may as well ask for Unicorn factories and a secret government time machine in the bargain. That part strikes me as off the deep end? Interesting what people try in court filings...
