The Art of Projection: Obama ‘Wingman’ Eric Holder Claims Trump Will Use DOJ to Prosecute Political Opponents
“A second Trump term would have a politicized, weaponized — forget politicized — weaponized United States Department of Justice that would do the kinds of things”
Have you noticed the fact that Democrats keep claiming that Trump is going to eventually do something that they are already doing? It happens so often that it’s genuinely difficult to keep track.
Obama’s Former Attorney General Eric Holder provided the latest example during an appearance on MSNBC.
Real Clear Politics provides a transcript:
MIKE DAVIS, POTENTIAL TRUMP ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL: I will rain health on Washington, D.C. We have talked about this, but I have five lists ready to go, and they’re growing.
List number one, we’re going to fire. We’re going to fire a lot of people in the executive branch of the deep state. Number two, we’re going to indict. We’re going to indict Joe Biden and Hunter Biden and James Biden and every other scumball, sleazeball Biden, except for the 5-year-old granddaughter who they refused to acknowledge for five years until the political pressure got to Joe Biden.
Number three, we’re going to deport. We’re going to deport a lot of people, 10 million people and growing, anchor babies, their parents, the grandparents. We’re going to put kids in cages. It’s going to be glorious. We’re going to detain a lot of people in the D.C. gulag and Gitmo. And list number five, I’m going to recommend a lot of pardons.
Every January 6 defendant is going to get a pardon.

REID: How concerned are you that will be the kind of Department of Justice Donald Trump will run in real life if he becomes president again?
HOLDER: Well, I think we have to take them at their word and take Donald Trump at his word.
Whether or not that idiot becomes attorney general or not, they will — Trump will try to put in place an attorney general who will do the — do his bidding. But they have also learned from the first term, and it will not only be who is the attorney general.
The question will also be who is the head of the Criminal Division in the Justice Department, who are the U.S. attorneys around the country, and what hiring authority those U.S. attorneys have, so that we will have an administration in place that will actually do the kinds of things that they tried to do in the first term, but were thwarted by career people and by people, to be fair, other political appointees who decided that they would not go against the rule of law.
I think that second Trump term — and this is something that the voters really need to keep in mind when they go to the polls in November. A second Trump term would have a politicized, weaponized — forget politicized — weaponized United States Department of Justice that would do the kinds of things that, with all due respect, that idiot just said.
Yes, weaponizing the Department of Justice sounds awful. Just imagine if someone did that.
Here’s the short version of the video:
Eric Holder: "You think of the America that they are trying to create. You have a president who is beyond the reach of the law. You have a Justice Department that goes after political opponents. American democracy could end with the election of Donald Trump." pic.twitter.com/qzAPiodXsk

Here’s the full segment:
Do they really think no one sees what’s going on here?
"You have a president who is beyond the reach of the law. You have a Justice Department that goes after political opponents."
Do they even hear themselves? https://t.co/E51qI2h479

Every week, we get a different Democrat claiming that Trump is going to do something they’re already doing to him or his supporters. It’s pure projection, and either they’re too dumb to see it or they think we are.
