Californians foot $25G bill for 40 hours of Holder’s anti-Trump time

California taxpayers are shelling out $25,000 a month for 40 hours of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s time to help the state strategize for upcoming clashes with the Trump administration, according to a contract obtained by a conservative watchdog group.

The California Legislature hired Holder and his Washington, D.C., firm, Covington & Burling, last month to assist with legal challenges over everything from immigration to environmental policies.

Judicial Watch, which obtained Holder’s contract through a records request, called the deal “crony corruption pure and simple.”

“The new records show California state legislators are wasting tax dollars to bankroll another corrupt politician – Eric Holder – under the pretense of attacking the Trump administration,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a written statement.

The firm did not respond to a request for comment.

    As Holder takes you all for a ride, becomes rich Trump is going to tear you a new one and the Sanctuary Cities are flailing like fish on the shore washed in by a strong tide. Here comes the Tide or Tsunami named Trump. Enjoy.

    It’s nice to see California hiring a convicted felon…Oh wait, Mr. Holder was not prosecuted for his illegal gun sales scheme. California has financial problems. Their decision to hire Eric Holder is a good example of the poor choices which have got them into debt.

    Californication loves to oppose what America stands for. They are totally influenced by all the perverts and ILLEGALS in their state.

    When the loser Moonshine wastes money on the loser Holder the people of California are the losers.

    Because CA is in such an excellent economic state, I’m sure it makes sense to them to waste money this way.
    Perhaps the deal will fall through when “fast and furious” racist Holder is imprisoned for gun running to drug lords.
