Eric Holder, the attorney general who famously oversaw the scandalous Fast and Furious, and who used his Department of Justice position to tap into telephone lines of journalists, came out publicly denouncing President Donald Trump’s decision to declassify certain FISA documents as a “dangerous abuse of power.”
Well, Holder would know, wouldn’t he?
This is an especially dangerous abuse of power by this President. He places his self interest above the national security interests of the country. https://t.co/KJohV6V3tY

Truly, this is how the Democrats do: Whatever they accuse the Republicans of, you can pretty much bank on the fact they’re guilty of doing the same.
They accuse of what they know. And they do so in order to distract the American people from their own guilt.
More from the Washington Times:
Former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Tuesday that President Trump’s decision to declassify FISA court documents and Justice Department messages about the Russia investigation is “an especially dangerous abuse of power.”
Mr. Holder criticized Mr. Trump for holding, “his self-interest about the national security interests of the country.”
Mr. Trump announced the move Monday afternoon, after repeated requests from Republicans in both chambers of Congress.
The 19 documents declassified would provide an insight to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act application process, FBI interviews with DOJ official Bruce Ohr, and interview reports regarding the FISA application to conduct surveillance on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Republicans contend that Mr. Ohr had a hand in organizing the Steele dossier, which they argue was the basis for spying on Mr. Page and the Russia investigation into the Trump campaign.
Mr. Trump has denied all wrong doing and argued he is the victim of a “witch hunt.” The president claims that Democrats, who were connected to the Steele dossier, are the ones truly guilty of colluding with Russians.
