By Cassandra Novick

At a press conference on Monday, Wade Henderson, President and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, says that race is a “subtle factor” in the efforts to charge U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder with contempt.

“What has only been inferred heretofore… the fact that the issue of race is a subtle factor in this effort.”

    Of course the Dem’s are going to cry foul and demand more time and state, in just nine days the Gop rushed to judgement. The real reality is, the committee has given Holder more than nine months to be forth coming with the documents in question. This AG feels he and his people are above the law, however, even with the president closing ranks with him and the president once again interpeting the law as he wants it to be, Eric Holder will be held in contempt. Eric Holder is a political thug, he has shown utter disregard for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights!!!!!!!
