Lies and Constitutional Violations: Business As Usual.
Eric Holder is another of President Obama's cabinet nominees that obviously required a waiver of the President's high ethical standards. Not only did Mr. Holder help pardon fugitive, Mark Rich, he also helped pardon FALN terrorists. In his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mr. Holder told Chairman Leahy that since the Supreme Court had found that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, he would abide by that decision as Attorney General. The decision also says that banning any firearm that is in common use would be a violation of the Second Amendment. Attorney General Holder has now called for the reinstatement of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. Reinstating the ban would be a violation of the Second Amendment. Mr. Holder has now violated the Constitution of the United States, his oath of office and also lied to Senator Leahy. Will Senator Leahy now call for Mr. Holder to be removed from office or at least ask him to resign? Since most Congressmen have violated their oaths of office regularly, I doubt Senator Leahy or any Government official will do anything.
