Eric Holder questions legitimacy of Supreme Court decisions, taps left’s ‘rage’ in his dangerous game

Eric Holder, who may or may not be running for president in 2020, has been vocal in the days leading up to the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh, and now that he has been sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice, Holder called into question the legitimacy of the high court.

On the day Kavanaugh was narrowly confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Obama’s former attorney general employed inflammatory rhetoric to call on Democrats to use their “rage” to “be rid of these people.”

“With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned. The Court must now prove – through its work – that it is worthy of the nation’s trust,” Holder tweeted.

The tweet setting the stage for Democrats to question any unfavorable decision from the high court for years to come.

Holder also questioned whether the FBI was given adequate time to conduct what was the seventh background check on Kavanaugh, after the desperate last-minute ambush of the nominee by Democrats.

He said the results that did not corroborate questionable claims of sexual assault may be a “sham” in a tweet Wednesday.

“FBI had time to do a good follow up inquiry. If logical investigation was curtailed by WH this new ‘report’ is a sham. FBI should have/must insist that it be allowed to do a complete job on referred allegations. Reputation for independence of FBI will be otherwise harmed.” Holder tweeted.

Holder was clear in his opposition to Kavanaugh in the hours leading up to the vote Saturday, tweeting that “there are conservative acceptable alternatives.”

What he doesn’t say is that by pursuing alternatives, this is sure to push the process beyond the midterm elections, where Democrats hope they’ll pull off the unexpected and gain a majority in the Senate.

And now that they have lost the Kavanaugh battle, Holder tapped the “rage” seen all last week from a Democratic mob, leading up to the confirmation vote.

“As you lament the Merrick Garland outrage never forget that McConnell and R’s did not fill lower court seats for YEARS. Those are the seats being filled now. Use the rage of today to get people out to vote and be rid of these people. Your voice matters. Your vote counts. VOTE!” he tweeted.

For him?
