Eric Holder said he is confident that Robert Mueller has an obstruction of justice case against President Trump.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder predicted that special counsel Robert Mueller already has an obstruction of justice case against President Trump, and is waiting to bring the case before a grand jury.
In an interview on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, Holder said that he believed Mueller’s probe would result in more charges, .
“Well I think that you technically have an obstruction of justice case that already exists,” Holder said. “I’ve known Bob Mueller for 20, 30 years. My guess is, he’s just trying to make the case as good as he possibly can.”
“But I think that Steyer is absolutely right in the sense that Trump is derelict in his duties,” Holder said. “We were attacked. It wasn’t a physical attack, it was an electronic attack, on our most vital of systems, and he’s done nothing to prepare us for what is to come. Because they’re still coming.”
“And he’s done nothing to hold the Russians accountable in spite of the fact that this dysfunctional Congress passed sanctions that he has refused to implement,” Holder continued.
It’s laughable that Holder is talking about dereliction of duties when the Russians began their interference in the elections under his and Barack Obama’s presidency.
“And that for me is breathtaking, unforgivable and ultimately something the American people have to hold him responsible for.”
Mueller’s probe expanded last month with the indictment of 13 Russian nationals for alleged efforts to interfere in the 2016 election by using fake social media profiles to spread disinformation and divisive rhetoric among Americans.
There is no indication that Mueller has found any proof of collusion between President Trump and the Russians – Holder is spinning the fake news narrative to keep the focus off of Obama and Hillary.
