Disgraced former Attorney General Eric Holder joined CNN political commentator David Axelrod when he said something that might make Democrats angry.
Holder told Axelrod: “I think there is a potential cost to the nation by putting on trial a former president.” Why would that make Democrats angry? There has been chatter about prosecuting Pres. Trump after he leaves office, which I believe is more hype than reality. If Democrats can label and muddy Pres. Trump’s administration to make it look as if he is guilty every day of his life, they feel the narrative will stick, and they would have won.

In the way of Holder, to make that statement, there had to be a reason. Could he have been trying to protect his friend Barack Obama? Before Holder made that statement, he said he felt Pres. Trump would be prosecuted when he leaves office at the end of his term.
Holder: “We already have an indictment in the Southern District of New York where [former Trump attorney] Michael Cohen — relative to the payoffs, Michael Cohen’s already in jail with regard to his role there,”
Then Holder referring to a passage used in court documents to name Pres. Trump:
“Individual-1 is the president, and it would seem to me that the next attorney general, the next president, is going to have to make a determination.”
Holder then responded “there is a potential cost to the nation by putting on trial a former president, and that ought to at least be a part of the calculus that goes into the determination that has to be made by the next attorney general,” as he responded to Axelrod who asked about the potential effect of putting Trump on trial.
