The Democratic-led #California Legislature has hired Eric Holder to help with any potential fights with the incoming administration, from global warming to immigration.
Hiring Holder, who is now a Washington-based attorney, provides a glimpse into how California will fight President-elect #Donald Trump on a host of issues.
Holder was President Obama’s first attorney general (AG) who departed in 2015 after numerous scandals.
Because of all the fake news and speculation generated before and after the election, one prominent narrative was that President Trump would erase #Climate Change data from government servers.
That started a hacking initiative to preserve all government climate data to third-party servers, which is a violation of federal law.
Outspoken Trump critic
Gov. Jerry Brown, who is an outspoken Trump critic and Hillary Clinton supporter, has already stated California would send its own satellites into orbit to measure temperatures if Trump canceled any climate initiatives by NASA or NOAA.
Kevin de Le√≥n, who leads the state’s Senate, said that utilizing a former U.S. attorney general would bring a lot of “firepower” in defending California’s controversial initiatives.
