Holder’s gag-worthy farewell: AG says his DOJ will be remembered as ‘golden age’ of justice

During a farewell address to the Justice Department, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder had the audacity Friday to call his tenure a “golden age” of justice.

“I said earlier that when we celebrated Robert Kennedy’s 50th anniversary of his swearing in 2011, people said that was the golden age for the United States Department of Justice,” he told his staffers. “Well, I think 50 years from now, maybe even sooner than that, people will look at the work you all did and say this was another golden age.”

The Justice Department, he said, is known for a “long line of excellence.’

“But every now and again, at an appropriate time, a group comes along that is worthy of special recognition,” he said. “And you all are in fact one of those groups. I am proud of you. You all are always going to be my family. And wherever I am, whatever I am doing, I will be rooting for you from the sidelines.”

Outrage! Judge hammers white victims of armed home invasion for racism, lets criminal go free.

Holder also took the occasion to express his love for his staff while the Justice Department sent out some highlights of his tenure.

Curiously absent were graphics for Fast & Furious, AP Spying and frivolous investigations into George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson.

But more about that “golden age.”
