Eric Holder Is Considering A Presidential Run In 2020

Former attorney general Eric Holder is reportedly thinking of throwing his hat into the ring for the 2020 election. Sadly, that would score him points with some people on the left.
"I think any one of my kids would make a better president than Donald Trump", he said, when asked if he would make a better president.
During his time as Obama's attorney general, Holder became a polarizing figure - becoming the first member of a president's cabinet in history to be held in contempt of Congress after failing to cooperate with a Congressional investigation into a Justice Department program that provided guns to Mexican gangs.
Appearing in the friendly confines of MSNBC Wednesday night, Holder told host Rachel Maddow any of his three children would be a better choice for president than Trump.
Despite his coy response to the question of a presidential run, it's hard to see how Holder might translate his legal career into a traditional resume for a presidential candidate.

Also asked if he planned a career in politics, he said again, "I'll see".
"Is there a technical case there now?"
A former judge and United States attorney for the District of Columbia, Holder now leads the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, a group that seeks to push back against the past decade of Republican gains in state legislatures and statewide offices. Holder said in response to questions from POLITICO after a Christian Science Monitor breakfast Wednesday. If Mueller would try to bring criminal charges against Trump, the White House would immediately file a legal challenge on the basis that president can't be charged with a crime.
Holder disagreed, saying a sitting president is not above the law, based on a legal examination of the issue that was done when he was the deputy attorney general under Clinton. Maybe "Fast and Furious 2020" would work.
