Former AG Eric Holder sends mysterious 3 a.m. tweet telling DOJ staff to ‘be prepared, be strong’

Published

on

Eric Holder, who served as attorney general under former President Barack Obama, posted an eyebrow-raising tweet early on Friday morning in which he told career officials at the FBI and Department of Justice to “be prepared” and “be strong.”

“To the career men & women at DOJ/FBI: your actions and integrity will be unfairly questioned,” Holder wrote. “Be prepared, be strong. Duty. Honor. Country.”

Holder didn’t post any followup tweet after this, and would not say if he had any inside information about something that was about to happen at the DOJ or FBI.

Holder posts fairly infrequently on Twitter, and many of his previous tweets have involved his opposition to Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, as well as fighting “racial gerrymandering” across the country.

‘Hard to overstate’ how badly Taylor’s testimony damaged Trump: Ex-federal prosecutor

Published

On Wednesday, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote for Politico Magazine that the testimony of Ukraine envoy William Taylor was devastating for President Donald Trump — and that if he keeps trying to deny wrongdoing, it will only get worse and maybe even force Senate Republicans' hand against him.

"It’s hard to overstate how much damage the testimony of Ukraine envoy William Taylor inflicted on President Donald Trump’s defense in the ongoing impeachment inquiry," wrote Mariotti. "On its face, Taylor’s testimony Tuesday established the quid pro quo that Trump has denied for weeks. But more importantly, Taylor’s detailed notes of the 'highly irregular' policy-making that he witnessed over the summer provide a roadmap to future testimony that could be even more harmful. Republicans have already begun to retreat from their 'no quid pro quo' line, but they will have to keep retreating because Taylor has almost single-handedly decimated the few witnesses who have provided some testimony that is favorable to Trump."

‘How much did you get for your soul?’ Internet dogpiles Lindsey Graham after he walks back criticism of SCIF raid

Published

On Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared to have reached the limit of his capacity to defend his own party when a gang of House Republicans raided a sensitive, compartmented information facility where an impeachment hearing was taking place and illegally bringing in recording equipment. Initially Graham criticized the Republicans behind the stunt, calling it "nuts."

Later, however, he changed his mind and decided the demonstration was fine with him, offering this explanation:
