Holder in Newly Released Emails: ‘Some People Can Kiss My Ass’

The Wall Street Journal today reported on more emails the Justice Department handed over to the House Oversight Committee, and one of them shows Eric Holder getting a bit profane and testy with critics over the Fast and Furious scandal.

In a previous email released this week, the attorney general trashed House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa and his “idiot cronies” making this investigation all about politics. The email in question today, however, concerns Holder’s response to an email about U.S. attorneys across the country upset about the forced resignation of one attorney in Arizona over the failed gun-running operation.

Holder hoped they would get the benefit of the doubt and said he wasn’t trying to get too angry about this, but he couldn’t help himself, because later in the day he emailed back, “Some people can kiss my ass.”

Holder is, of course, on his way out at the White House, and is expected to be replaced by Loretta Lynch.
