Krauthammer’s Take: Holder’s ‘Days Have to Be Numbered’


On Special Report Charles Krauthammer laid out the case for attorney general Eric Holder’s exit from the Obama administration in the not-too-distant future. Citing the president’s charging Holder to investigate the surveillance that Holder himself authorized, Krauthammer observed, “If that’s not meddling, nothing is.”

Krauthammer laid out the possibilities for Holder’s actions, which range from perjury to incompetence, “and this is always the case with Holder: the most benign explanation is incompetence.” “The reason why I think his days have to be numbered,” Krauthammer explained, “is because the president is now involved . . . . This is entirely untenable.”
