Judicial Watch president: Holder’s DOJ is ‘Locus of Evil’

In a scathing interview, Tom Fitton — president of the non-partisan group Judicial Watch — assessed the Obama administration’s behavior and described the Department of Justice under Eric Holder’s tenure as a “Locus of Evil.”

“It doesn’t get much worse than that Attorney General,” Fitton said.

Fitton recalled that Judicial Watch took the highly unusual step of opposing Holder’s appointment. “We knew Eric Holder was involved in the pardon scandal under the Clinton years, where he pushed for these pardons that were bought and paid for practically by Clinton patrons… That only scratches the surface of his problems. So he comes in, and sure enough, he is appointed and he turns into the politically-pliant Attorney General that we thought he would be.”
