The Young Turks - 9.25.14: Eric Holder Resigns, ISIS Updates, School District Spying & Police Brutality
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.
