Eric Holder's Selective Ethics
4:31 PM, Jun 4, 2010 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
Attorney General Holder apparently only selectively follows ethical rules governing what prosecutors can say about pending criminal investigations. Compare his comments on the Sestak scandal and the BP oil spill, only three weeks apart:
On BP (June 1): "The U.S. Justice Department opened criminal and civil investigations into the BP Plc oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the worst in U.S. history. 'We will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who has violated the law,' Attorney General Eric Holder said yesterday. 'This disaster is nothing less than a tragedy.'"
So much for equal justice under law.
