Main Topic Eric Holder for Attorney General? 35 MIN, 59 SEC
Barack Obama’s nominee for Attorney General got some tough grilling from Senate Republicans today. But he was introduced to the Judiciary Committee by Virginia’s newly-retired Republican Senator John Warner as a man whose “misjudgments will not be repeated.” Holder’s admission of mistakes came in the context of President Clinton’s pardon of Mark Rich, a financier who fled the country under charges of tax evasion—and whose wife had contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Clinton Library and the Democratic Party.
