Obama’s Attorney Gen. Eric Holder just released a statement on FISA memo, with one glaring problem

Former attorney general Eric Holder weighed in on the debate over the potential release of the controversial FISA memo which he said would be “dangerous” and “irresponsible.”

Holder, who served under former President Obama from 2009 to 2015, tweeted a statement as tensions mounted over whether the White House should release the classified four-page document penned by the staff of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes.

Those with a discerning eye will have a simple question for Holder after his statement.

Fox News Channel’s senior political analyst Brit Hume pointed it out in a tweet responding to Holder’s.

With Democrats in a panic over what appears to be an imminent release of the classified document, which potentially would impact special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation by exposing corruption at top levels in the FBI and the Department of Justice, Holder’s response was telling.

He continued to react on Twitter, sharing the FBI’s statement regarding the FISA memo.

And again, he tweeted a rebuke of the “Nunes nonsense.”

Following some technical redactions requested by the FBI, the White House is expected to release the declassified document on Friday, despite tantrums and panic attacks from Democrats and Obama-era officials like Holder, the only cabinet member in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress during the investigation of the Fast and Furious operation which allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers.

Twitter users weighed in on the former AG’s reactions.
