Holder's Conflict of Interests

I had intended to write about Eric Holder's former law firm, Covington & Burling, representing numerous detainees at Gitmo and the obvious conflicts of interest with his current position as Attorney General, but never got around to it. Yesterday The Washington Examiner bravely covers his refusal to recuse himself or provide complete information when asked by the Senate Judiciary Committee. I am not certain whether that exchange was before or after he made a fool of himself testifying that he had not considered precedent or consequences before making the decision to try KSM in New York City.

Michelle Malkin covers the complete background story today, so read the details there.
