The Young Turks - FREE (Audio)

Ben, Ana, and Iadarola host TYT. The Obama Administration announced that Eric Holder will be stepping down by year’s end. President Obama and Holder speak on the decision in a video. Ben talks about the litany of non-scandals Republicans have tried to nail on Holder vs the number of really big accomplishments he’s had. Speculation over why he’s now resigning follows, including the possibility of being nominated to the Supreme Court if Ginsburg steps aside. Many Conservatives are very happy to see Holder go. Andrea Tantaros claims that Holder ran the DOJ like the Black Panthers. Video shows former VJ Kennedy chiming in to say he is slimier than a salamander covered in vaseline. Jonah Goldberg calls Holder a hatchet man for the President before claiming he somehow was giving a pass to the media. Ben talks about Goldberg’s comparison of Holder to Bobby Kennedy. John reads Conservative tweets bashing the AG on his way out. The PM of Iraq announced that his intelligence officials uncovered a plot by ISIS to attack subway networks in Paris and NYC.

A school in Huntsville, Alabama is spying on their students, worrying about potential gang activity on Facebook. When their actions were brought to light, they claimed that the NSA told them to monitor the students, but the NSA denied this excuse. Ben thinks it makes some sense for the school to monitor bad behavior of students in order to protect other students from threats. An update to the story of a Los Angeles woman being repeatedly punched on the shoulder of the freeway by a CHP officer is given. The officer has resigned and the bipolar woman that was beaten has received a large settlement. A state trooper in SC has been fired after video of him shooting a citizen for reaching for his license surfaced.
