"[F]or Attorney General Eric Holder, the gravity of the situation didn’t fully sink in until Monday morning when he read the Post’s front-page story, sitting at his kitchen table. Quoting from the affidavit, the story detailed how agents had tracked Rosen’s movements in and out of the State Department, perused his private emails, and traced the timing of his calls to the State Department security adviser suspected of leaking to him. Then the story, quoting the stark, clinical language of the affidavit, described Rosen as 'at the very least ... an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator' in the crime," reports the Daily Beast.As well he should. The bus looms for Holder, the same bus that his boss throws people under.
"Holder knew that Justice would be besieged by the twin leak probes; but, according to aides, he was also beginning to feel a creeping sense of personal remorse."
I consider Eric Holder to be an unprincipled, arrogant, driven man who believes that he has a special entitlement. He is not a public servant. His position is directly related to his ability to interact with other unprincipled, arrogant, driven men and women, who hold the American public in great disdain. The old saying that "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" is in play here. Eric Holder is corrupt and his creeping sense of personal remorse is not that he did the things he did, but that he's caught. He told Congress that he didn't know about the subpoenas, the tracking, the email hacking and now they have his signature on at least one document approving that investigation. He's caught and he knows it.
If he lied to Congress (and there is little doubt that he did so), he should be disbarred and prosecuted. And there is his creeping sense of remorse. Not that he did the crime, but that he's been caught.
