Even our far left former attorney general Eric Holder is admitting what is now obvious to everyone. There was no Russian collusion on the part of the Trump campaign.
Holder made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Holder said he believes Mueller did what he thought he was supposed to do under the circumstances.
“This is a guy who has the ability to, and the constitution to, make tough decisions,” Holder said. “So, the fact that he did not make a call here I think is an indication that he did what he thought he was supposed to do given the strictures that he was under.”
When asked whether he thought Barr’s statement on obstruction of justice in his summary was warranted given past precedent of other special counsel investigations, Holder said he did not.
“I think he is wrong. I think he is taking on to himself a role that has not typically been used by people in the position that [sic] Bob Barr has had,” Holder said.
Despite his uncertainty about obstruction, Holder said he thinks the report clears Trump of any collusion or conspiracy with Russia.
“I think it does,” Holder said. “I have not seen the Mueller report. But certainly on the basis of the letter that Attorney General Barr put together, it would it seem to me that that is a substantial finding there.”
Holder added that he thinks the report is “good news” for Trump and his 2020 campaign for re-election.

It’s good that Holder said this, but before you start thinking he has changed in any way, you should know that he is the same old leftist he has always been.
Eric Holder Calls for Electoral College to Be Abolished: ‘It’s a Defect in Our Democracy’
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called for the electoral college to be abolished, saying it’s “a defect in our democracy” during an event with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on gerrymandering at the National Press Club on Tuesday,
The moderator of the event asked Holder what he thought about eliminating the electoral college and replacing it with a national popular vote.
“I think we ought to do away with the electoral college. You know we have a system now that’s a defect in our democracy,” Holder said. “We have had in the last five elections two presidents who were not – did not win the popular vote. The presidency is the one office in this country that represents all of the people.”
Ugh. That’s the Holder we know.
