It was last week that the California state hired the US Attorney General Eric Holder to try and prevent Trump from coming to office.
This was met by a response from Judicial Watch who filed a request for more details into his appointment.
Daily Caller reported that Covington & Burling, which is Holder’s firm, was hired last week by California to serve as “outside counsel” to the legislature.
In their filing, Judicial Watch targeted “all contracts between the California Legislature and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. or Covington and Burling,” in addition to “all communications between the California Legislature and former U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. or Covington and Burling about the Legislature’s retention of Holder and/or Covington and Burling.”
After the filing, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton spoke out to call “records request” an effort to “expose how California state legislators are wasting tax dollars to take care of another corrupt politician – Eric Holder – under the guise of resisting the rule of law on immigration and other matters.”
Holder was the attorney general from 2009-2015 for Obama and during that term he was the first attorney General to be ever held in contempt of Congress on criminal and civil grounds.
