He’s clearly not a fan of Republicans in Congress either, according to a tweet he posted on Thursday.
In the tweet, Holder said he continues to speak “on behalf of the vast majority of the American people,” referencing a looming, suspicion that special counsel Robert Mueller may be removed from his post from congressional Republicans.
Trump has previously denied he is looking to fire Mueller.
Holder tweeted, “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated. These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party.”

Here’s what some people said about the post:
Getting nervous, Eric?

You destroyed the integrity of the DOJ. You have ZERO authority to speak on these matters.

Eric you are NO longer relevant, are you THREATENING members of congress?? The FBI should be watching YOU.

Afraid you don't speak for me Mr Fast and Furious

(“Fast and Furious” a reference to the failed initiative of the Obama administration, see here.)
So what do you plan on doing if Mueller 'gets the boot'? Phone those cartels you ILLEGALLY gave guns to, and give instructions to them to do bad, bad things? About your speed… just sayin'.

It would have been nice if the Obama administration, including you, had practiced the "Country not party" approach. WIth zero doubt, you actively participated in an agenda driven, anti American, anti moral, anti-Christian, pro-Muslim destruction driven administration.

Just cause the members of the special counsel donated to you doesn’t mean you have to downplay their extreme bias. Were you part of the “insurance policy” plan?

Mr. Holder, don't speak on behalf of me. I can speak for myself. What we really have are b/s attacks against President Trump and there are a lot of activities ongoing that people aren't telling the truth about. When you say attempts to remove Muller won't be tolerated, ?.

Weren’t you held in contempt of Congress???? And yes country over party exactly.

What do you think, does he speak for you?
