Sedition: Eric Holder calls on DOJ/FBI to unconstitutionally defy President Trump

On Monday, former Attorney General Eric Holder, who, by the way, was held in contempt of Congress, urged employees of the Justice Department and the FBI to unconstitutionally defy President Trump in his effort to determine if the agencies acted inappropriately by targeting a political campaign during the election.

“More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry. His Congressional supporters want evidence connected to an ongoing investigation. Time for DOJ/FBI to simply say no-protect the institutions and time tested norms,” he tweeted.

Forget transparency and forget about public disclosures of information related to the unprecedented spy operation launched against the 2016 Trump campaign.

Holderā€™s insistence that the DOJ and FBI ā€œprotect the institutionsā€ rather than carry out their constitutional duties and protect the constitution, the document they actually swear to protect when entering their federal positions is telling and rather frightening.

If one ever searched for a ā€œdeep stateā€ smoking gun it appears Holder has offered it up. Protect the ā€œInstitutionā€ of the Justice Department at the expense of the US Constitution. Defy the Presidentā€™s orders for the sake of the governmental apparatus.

Retired intelligence expert Tony Schaffer cut to the chase:
