Eric Holder Jr. has returned home to Covington & Burling after more than six years as U.S. attorney general, and he said it is the "last stop" in his legal career.

    The only thing worth "celebrating" about this lawless tool is that he‘s gone. The less we hear of him, the better. Good riddance!

  • Kenneth Alexander

    "All the people none of the time" if its the thought that counts, we must take it for what it is worth!

  • wtf

    He‘s going to pivot BACK to working for the banks? Did he ever pivot away?

  • Cromulent

    I gotta think that if a President Hillary asked for help in selling pardons that Eric Holder would answer the call.
