California to Pay Obama A.G. Eric Holder’s Law Firm $25,000 a Month for Anti-Trump ‘Legal Strategies’

by Andrew Eicher, CNSnews:

Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder’s law firm, Covington and Burling, will receive $25,000 a month from the California Legislature.

The fee is in exchange for 40 hours of work each month on providing “legal strategies regarding potential actions of the federal government that may be of concern to the State of California,” according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

In response to the documents, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said that California legislators are “wasting tax dollars to bankroll another corrupt politician – Eric Holder – under the pretense of attacking the Trump administration.”

The contract amounts to “crony corruption pure and simple,” Fitton said. “The swamp of public corruption has taken over California.”

Controversies such as Operation Fast and Furious and the Justice Department’s spying on the Associated Press marred Holder’s time as U.S. Attorney General.

In 2012, Holder became the first Attorney General held in contempt of Congress on both civil and criminal grounds for his role in the Fast and Furious, an ATF “gun-running” scheme in which guns were sold in the U.S. to Mexican drug cartels in hopes that they could be traced to cartels and crime scenes.
