Krauthammer’s Take: Left Will Regret Holder’s Politicization of AG’s Office

While it is “perfectly honorable” for Eric Holder to want to dedicate his life to combating perceived racial injustices, he should have done so in some other capacity and not while serving as attorney general, Charles Krauthammer said on Thursday’s Special Report.

“When you are the attorney general of the United States, you have to subordinate that to what the law is, and he hasn’t done that,” he said. “He’s been after an agenda, and if the Constitution was in the way, he trampled on the Constitution.”

Democrats may have benefited from Holder’s politicization of the attorney general’s office during the Obama administration, but they will come to regret it in the future, Krauthammer warned.
