    Att'y general failed to give legal briefs to Senate

    (Reuters) - Attorney General Eric Holder failed to tell the Senate about seven legal briefs he signed when lawmakers considered his nomination to his current job, according to a letter released on Friday.

    Two of the briefs involved appeals to the Supreme Court for Jose Padilla, who sought release from a military prison in South Carolina where he was being held after then-President George W. Bush designated him an "enemy combatant."

    Padilla was held in a military brig for three years before his case was moved to a criminal court in Miami, where he was convicted on charges of offering his services to militants.

    The Justice Department sent the Senate Judiciary Committee, which vets presidential nominees, a list of briefs that were omitted on Friday. "We regret the omission," Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich said in a letter to the panel.

    Man! The more that this corrupt Obama organization is checked into, the more they operate like a criminal enterprise. I say we need Special Prosecutors for the whole bunch.

    On the one hand, it's not like these were some secret documents that nobody could have otherwise obtained and which contained information about policy positions that he didn't otherwise endorse.

    On the other hand, it's hard to believe that when someone is asked to turn over copies of all of the briefs he's submitted to the Supreme Court in his career, he forgets seven of the twelve. You don't really tend to forget your SC amicus briefs.

    Not sure what motivation he would have to hide these things, but also not sure how on earth he overlooked this.

    One of two possible reasons come to mind.
    1) He is an idiot.
    2) He is forgetful.

    What I personally find strange is how this streak of forgetfulness seems to run rampant through Democratic appointees.

    Well, it could actually be both - long shot... but possible.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Att'y general failed to give legal briefs to Senate

    thank you for posting this, an important story

    again, that which was concealed from the public always runs so strongly in one direction

    like the misrepresented "stimulus" numbers misreported on recovery.gov

    never do the oversights and riddled arithmetic end up painting the numbers-challenged admin in a WORSE LIGHT

    like the gao's audit yesterday of usaspending.gov, once more, a bunch of numbers fudged oddly unrandomly, all tending one way

    here, holder hides his soft-on-suspects views which he misrepresented in testimony before senate

    the story was made public when dana perino, bush's press secty and a rising star on the right, called out holder for filing an amicus brief in the case of jose padilla, whom holder back then argued could conceivably go free if tried before civil venue

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0310/34233.html

    in repeated testimony since, he has stated the opposite about accused terrorists

    holder's a disaster

    his testimony before lindsey graham was a joke, he couldn't answer the simple pre-law question of precedent

    youtube made a hit video out of the extremely entertaining exchange

    holder can only be held repsonsible for the failure to close gitmo

    once more, NINETY senators repulsed his and his bumbling boss' bid because they couldn't provide a single how, when or where

    holder is totally the man in the middle of the move-ksm-to-manhattan messup, a huge humiliation for this white house

    the mirandizing of mutallab independent even of a CONSULTATION with the security team

    the irony is that the 7 doj employees who'd worked on behalf of accused terrorists, whose names mr holder refused to provide senator grassley, is really 8

    and includes the answerless ag himself

    holder did the marc rich pardons, he's a sellout

    holder did the faln pardons, he's a radical

    he's a huge political liability, and that aint spin

    so is rahm, sorry

    have a nice weekend

    This man is neither and idiot or forgetful and the intentional withholding of these facts was to keep his and Obama's pro Islamic views from the publick as long as possible.

    No attorney in this life time could ever forget arguing a case before the high court unless he was either being intentionally deceitful.

    It's just another example of the Chicago style Government we face until WE THE PEOPLE say enough to this bunch of crooks and liars.

    Re: Att'y general failed to give legal briefs to Senate

    the ag's egregious oversight is an unambiguous exhibition of his and obama's intentional withholding of their pro islamic views

    it's just one more example of the comprehensive chicago-ization of the federal govt under this big shouldered, mafiosa leadership

    it won't hold much longer

    the silence in here on the part of the left is deafening

    indeed, absolutely
