The recent attacks on Attorney General Eric Holder have led some to charge that Republicans are playing dirty politics with the Obama Administration. What do we make of all this? Is Holder truly in contempt of Congress or are they trying to hang him out to dry?
Dr. Wilmer Leon at Howard University feels that while an election year is going to bring these kinds of political gimmicks, this is especially nasty. Dr. Leon also charges that the attacks are most certainly related to race and that it get in the way of the Obama Administration’s ability to get its job done. Dr. Leon is an expert on Political Science and also teaches classes about the presidency, so his viewpoints are valuable for those who want to hold Obama accountable without being unfair to him.
In this video, Dr. Boyce Watkins and Dr. Wilmer Leon discuss the recent decision by the Obama Administration to use Executive Privilege to stop challenges by Republicans in response to “Operation Fast and Furious.”
