Eric Holder Slams Donald Trump’s Chilling Debate Threat To Hillary Clinton


Debate Screen Capture


Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called Donald Trump “dangerous” and unqualified to be president after the Republican nominee threatened to use an arm of the federal government to punish his opponents during Sunday’s presidential debate against Hillary Clinton.

“If I win, I’m going to instruct the attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception,” Trump said of Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

The threat didn’t sit well with Holder, who once held the office Trump seeks to abuse.


Holder pointed out that even the famously vindictive President Richard Nixon was thwarted in his efforts to leverage the federal government to fight personal battles. And even when such strong-arm tactics do prevail, the author and Republican political strategist Stuart Stevens noted on Twitter, things tend to unravel in the long run:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar,rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

  1. Eric Holder is the U.S.AG who never prosecuted Wall Street or the big banks for the economy “crash” in 2008! He has no right calling anyone “unfit” for any position! I am not a Trump supporter and would never vote for him. However, I am extremely tired of hypocritical politicians calling others names!
