Open Tweet from Eric Holder to DOJ/FBI

I wonder why he felt the need to say that now.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is raising questions about possible conflicts of interest with acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and the FBI’s investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Grassley released a letter Thursday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in which he raised concerns about McCabe’s independence.


Grassley noted that the Justice Department inspector general is investigating whether McCabe should have recused himself from the Hillary Clinton email probe, since McCabe’s wife got donations from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally, when she ran for a Virginia state Senate seat.


President Donald Trump's personal attorney Jay Sekulow also addressed the issue in a series of Tweets on Thursday, concluding: “The conflicts of interest are clear and the American people should not tolerate this.”

Not clear to me what's going on here, but if Sleazy Trump's sleazy lawyer is complaining about somebody else's conflicts of interest, I'd be prone to take a very skeptical stance on the subject.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
