Remember Eric Holder? He’s the guy who heads up the government agency that’s going after Apple and 3 other publishers for colluding to set the price of e-books. They have a trial date set for June of next year. He may not be around to see it, not with the kind of day he had.
Today the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt for refusing to turn over documents related to the “Fast and Furious” gun-running sting that ended up getting a Border Patrol Agent killed. I don’t know much about politics, being an Apple blogger and all, but I guess that’s frowned upon.
The DoJ’s case against Apple is a joke to begin with, so Holder may want to take this opportunity to focus his efforts on issues that aren’t totally retarded. I guarantee that his agency isn’t going to come off sounding any more credible after Apple gets through with them – they’ve already shredded your accusations point by embarrassing point. Maybe he should consider spending more time with his attorney during this time of “misunderstanding”. Either way, we Apple folks promise to pretend like it never happened.
