(h/t The Corner) From Sen. Jeff Sessions--
I am deeply concerned by Attorney General Holder’s failure to disclose to the Senate Judiciary Committee his third-party brief in support of Jose Padilla’s Supreme Court case. Not only was the Attorney General required to provide the brief as part of his confirmation, but the opinions expressed in it go to the heart of his responsibilities in matters of national security. This is an extremely serious matter and the Attorney General will have to address it immediately. It is essential that we have full confidence, and receive full candor, from the official leading the Department of Justice.
When Holder had the bright idea to try KSM in NYC, we started to hear rumblings that his days were numbered. That seems to have blown over as the administration walked back from that particular idiocy.
But, bit by bit, we may be approaching the tipping point that will see Mr. Holder returning to private practice. He should never have been nominated for Attorney General, much less confirmed. He is easily the most radical person EVER to hold his office, and his history should have easily disqualified him from consideration.
