Holder ‘Consulting Strategists’ About Jumping into 2020 Race
Barack Obama-era U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder — who notoriously whitewashed the threat of Islamic terrorism, refused to bring voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers, and who green-lit the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal — is again considering running for president in 2020.
“I hear from a good source that Eric Holder has been consulting strategists about possibly jumping into the Dem presidential race,” Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson tweeted late Thursday.
Holder has contemplated running in 2020 before, even going so far as to travel to some early battleground states for key speeches, but in March 2019 he announced that he would not be running in 2020, and that he planned instead to focus on redistricting efforts.
But as Breitbart News points out, “given how weak the rest of the Democrat presidential field is in 2020, and with other top talent showing that the water is definitely still warm,” Holder now appears to be reconsidering and diving into the race after all.
