How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Atty Gen. Eric Holder: The Republican’s Pinata

WASHINGTON — Some believe Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. has become pinata for the Republicans, and that may be true again this week.

The Washington Post reports that Holder could take some punches from Republicans when he appears Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee at 9:30 a.m.

The paper reports that Republicans expect to grill him on a number of issues including the controversy over where to try suspected terrorist Khalid Sheik Mohammed.

The Post also reports that “Republicans are livid about Holder’s failure to include in his confirmation questionnaire that he had written friend-of-the-court briefs in the terror case of Jose Padilla, arguing that civilian trials were appropriate to handle terror suspects and keep executive power in check. Holder sent a letter apologizing to the committee immediately after the amicus briefs were disclosed, but “there is still a lot of anger there,” one Republican aide said.”

And there will be other issues as well. Stay tuned.
