Eric Holder: AG Jeff Sessions’ Policy is ‘dumb on crime’

Written by  Washington Times

Former Attorney General Eric Holder slammed the current leader of the Justice Department’s decision to roll back policies he had implemented as part of a broader effort to reform the criminal justice system.

Calling Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ new sentencing and charging memo “unwise” and “ill-informed,” Mr. Holder said the change in policy “is not tough on crime. It is dumb on crime.”

In a statement on the new policy, announced Friday, Mr. Holder said the decision “ignores a rare bipartisan political consensus that has formed around sentencing reform effort and will take this nation back to a discredited past.”

Mr. Holder’s policy changes, made as part of the Obama administration’s “Smart on Crime” initiative, were meant to discourage harsh sentences for certain drug-related offenses. One such policy rescinded Friday by Mr. Sessions, directed prosecutors not to include total drug quantity amounts in criminal charges when doing so would trigger mandatory minimum sentences under certain circumstances — such as if the defendant’s actions did not involve violence or a threat of violence, or if the person had no significant ties to drug-trafficking organizations or gangs.

Eric Holder, the crookedest A.G. we have ever had in America. He should keep his mouth shut, every time his lips move he is lying. Shame on Moonbeam for hiring him, because now he is going to screw up Kalifornia worse than it already is. The JERK belongs in JAIL for his ILLEGAL FAST AND FURIOUS scheme.

He never enforced any federal laws.

That murderous criminal Eric Holder was saved from prison by B. Hussein Obama's strange call on "executive privilege". Trump must revoke that funny call and send Secret Service to arrest that racist Marxist criminal.

Eric Holder needs to be perp walked directly to jail for his consistent anti-american pro communist views to law enforcement he let the black panthers continue voter intimidation, provided guns to drug dealers which resulted in the death if Brian Terry, which in and of itself should carry life in prison for him! Last person with any credibility on law enforcement front! Personally a firing squad would be to kind, I think he should be extradited, unarmed to Sonora, 10 minutes later he'd no longer have an opinion to spout off about!

At least he would not give drug cartels guns that killed many inoncent people including a border patrol agent. He is not going to capture crooks and then release them back into our country.

Exactly right. If they want to be released back into society they will either wait until their prison sentence is up or another Democrat is elected president so they can, undeservedly, be pardoned.

holder couldn't wipe his own ass without asking obama if he could.
