From Daily Wire:
Former Attorney General Eric Holder, the only cabinet member in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress, is contemplating a run for the presidency in 2020.
Holder, asked the question of a prospective presidential run by reporters at a media breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, responded, “You know, I’ll see. I’m focused on NDRC at this point. I think I’ll make a decision by the end of the year about whether there’s another chapter.”
Holder, who is currently supervising Barack Obama’s National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), said he plans to canvas the country about changing House district lines in roughly 20 states.
Washington Examiner has more:
Holder, who was attorney general from 2009-2015 and handled several controversial cases for the former president, is running Obama’s group aimed at redrawing “fair” congressional district lines, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee.
He plans to tour the nation making the case for changing House district lines. His group is focusing on about 20 states.
During the hour-long session, Holder spoke of issues he addressed while Obama’s top lawman and those he might take on the road in a campaign.
For example, he talked repeatedly about the plight of “people of color,” and raised issues including income inequality and climate change.
Holder, who remains very close to Obama, also assailed Trump for pardoning former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, hit several decisions by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and defended the IRS, FBI, Justice Department, and Russia probe investigator Robert Mueller.
