Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Thursday criticized Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller for using official government jets to take personal trips on the taxpayer’s dime with automatic budget cuts rapidly approaching.

“I’m really interested in how the attorney general can claim that federal law enforcement agents will be cut, knowing that over the last 5 years the department has allowed for millions of dollars to be spent on personal travel,” said Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Mr. Holder recognized that in effect, the big banks and their senior executives have a get-out-of-jail-free card."

I hope Senator Warren gets a chance to question his incompetence. Maybe it's not incompetence, maybe it's plain old greed and corruption. There seems to be a lot of that going around.

I wouldn't put much faith in Warren. She voted for the poster boy of Citigroup bailouts, Jacob Lew, as Treasury Secretary.


Everyone's made a big deal out of the questions she put to DOJ and Treasury officials today over money-laundering. She scored points for the camera, to be sure, and that's important, but frankly? For a lawyer, she's not all that good at controlling a witness.

She's not a lawyer, Cheyenne, she's a law professor. Big, big difference, as you know. A seasoned and talented litigator deposing an incredible witness can be a thing of beauty, given the time. 5 or 10 minutes is a joke. It's kabuki; nothing more.
