Doug Ross received a very interesting copy of a declaration from a potential witness at the Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton confirmations hearing. He’s expecting a disguised audio of the testimony soon which we’ll update you with when it arrives.

George Ladner provides a thorough review of the sidestep of justice performed by Eric Holder with the Rich pardon, which RedState summarized quite well:

  • Contrary to past statements, Holder was a lot more involved in the decision to pardon than he claimed to be, stating as early as 1999 that when it came to the charges against Marc Rich, “‘the equities’ were on Mr. Rich’s side” and blaming U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White for refusing to have a meeting on the issue.
  • Holder advised Jack Quinn, the former White House Counsel for the Clinton Administration and Rich’s lawyer, to “go straight to” the White House for a pardon request, stating that “the timing is good.”
  • The rules concerning pardon petitions state that the opinions of the U.S. Attorneys on the specific case “are given considerable weight” because of the “valuable insights” that they have. And yet, Mary Jo White was never consulted concerning the pardon of Marc Rich.
  • When the pardon was signed, Holder contacted Quinn to tell him that Quinn had done “a very good job” on the pardon.

Holder has admitted that many of his midnight moves were intended to position him well in the case Gore had won in 2000. There was no “pursuit of justice” motives here, just personal greed.
