Meghan McCain: Eric Holder Should Be in Jail, Not Running for President
Former Attorney General Eric Holder is reportedly joining the anti-President Trump "resistance" and mulling a presidential run in 2020.
"I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country," Holder told Yahoo News. “Now is the time to be more visible. Now is the time to be heard.”
On "Outnumbered" today, Meghan McCain said she can think of a more fitting place for Holder than the White House: the big house.
She explained that Holder was held in contempt of Congress in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal.
"In any other administration, this man would be in jail, which is where he should be, not running for president," McCain said.
Mercedes Schlapp said that Republicans should actually encourage Holder to run for president, as he's "unfit" for the position and would hurt the Democrats.
She added that Holder would not have the support of the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
McCain said the mere thought of Holder running for president is "asinine."
"It's actually very serious allegations that were brought up against him," McCain said. "So the idea that he's sort of just going to recuse himself from having any culpability in any of that and just run for president is insane."
