“You need to know that Eric Holder…played a key role in covering up the torture-murder death of my brother, Kenneth Michael Trentadue.”[1]

This is what Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue wrote in December 2008 to prospective incoming chairman of the Senate Justice Committee, Patrick Leahy. The newly elected Barack Obama had made Holder his choice for Attorney General and Trentadue was going to do everything in his power to stop this shameful appointment from going forward.

Kenneth Trentadue was killed in Oklahoma City on August 21, 1995, four months after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building. He had been taken into custody by the FBI and placed in an isolation cell at a federal facility in El Reno, Oklahoma.

The official government report on cause of death presented to Trentadue’s family stated that Kenneth had hanged himself in his cell. But massive bruises and lacerations all over his body compelled even the Oklahoma City medical examiner to state “very likely he was murdered.”[2]


Unable to get satisfactory information from government officials on what had happened to his brother, in 1997 Jesse Trentadue filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit against the Department of Justice. In it, Trentadue made the extraordinary claim that the Department had hidden and “destroyed evidence that would have exposed my brother’s murderers.”

As a result of that lawsuit, in 2001 the Trentadue family was awarded $1.1 million, and the federal judge indeed later ruled that “the FBI had lied in court…and destroyed evidence.”[3]

Using e-mails and handwritten notes acquired in that lawsuit, Trentadue demonstrated in his correspondence to Patrick Leahy that then-Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder had engineered a scheme to sidetrack any investigation into his brother’s death in order to “deflect congressional oversight and media attention.”

Calling their agenda the “Trentadue mission,” members of Holder’s DOJ team compared their efforts to “coordinating the invasion of Normandy.” They referred to “meeting with [Holder] to discuss ‘Trentadue-does’ and ‘Trentadue-don’t’,” concerning a carefully crafted press release designed to announce that a federal grand jury had just concluded its work and found no reason to charge anyone with a crime.

Of course that October 9 press release failed to say the grand jury had actually, secretly concluded its business in August, having been supplied with only the “evidence” the Department of Justice saw fit to provide.

The lengths to which Eric Holder and others went to stifle any investigation of the Trentadue affair make it clear that it was not simply a federal prisoner interrogation that went too far. CoachIsRight.com will present the known history of this extraordinary Clinton administration affair and cover-up through the coming days.

    Holder: Attorney General Eric Holder now operates

    history. And revelations from the Operation Fast and Furious scandal suggest
    that programs approved by the Holder DOJ may have resulted in the needless
    deaths of many, including a federal law enforcement officer.

    Fast and Furious was a

    operation in which guns were sold to Mexican drug cartels and others, apparently
    in hopes that the guns would end up at crime scenes. This reckless insanity
    seems to have resulted in, among other crimes, the murder of Border Patrol Agent
    Brian Terry, who was killed in a shootout with Mexican criminals in December
    2010. Fast and Furious guns were found at the scene of his death.

    The Fast and Furious

    cover-up that has prompted serious calls for Holder’s ouster.

    On May 3, 2011, in a
    House Judiciary Committee hearing chaired by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Holder
    testified: “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and
    Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” Newly released documents
    show he was receiving weekly briefings on Fast and Furious as far back as July
    5, 2010. It appears Holder lied to Congress. (Judicial Watch sued the DOJ and
    the ATF to obtain Fast and Furious records. The Judicial Watch investigation
    continues.)

    Unfortunately, when it
    comes to Holder's corruption and abuse of office, Fast and Furious is just the
    tip of the iceberg.

    On February 23, 2011,
    Attorney General Eric Holder announced that DOJ lawyers would no longer defend
    the constitutionality of Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), as
    applied to homosexual couples. DOMA had passed Congress by a vote of 85–14 in
    the Senate and a vote of 342–67 in the House. President Clinton signed the act
    into law on September 21, 1996.

    Judicial Watch filed
    two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the DOJ (including one on
    behalf of the Family Research Council) for records related to this
    pro-homosexual marriage decision. This failure to defend this federal law is
    unprecedented and raises serious questions as to whether President
    Obama and Eric Holder are
    upholding their oaths of office and following the Constitution’s command to
    “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

    The DOJ continues to
    stonewall the release of information regarding Supreme Court Justice Elena
    Kagan’s participation in Obamacare discussions when she served as Solicitor
    General. In addition to forcing Judicial Watch to file a lawsuit to obtain this
    information, Holder’s DOJ thumbed its nose at Congress by failing to release
    this material to the Senate Judiciary Committee during Kagan’s judicial
    confirmation hearing. Holder continues to personally resist requests from
    Judicial Watch and Congress for additional information on this controversy.
    Kagan’s role in these discussions is especially significant now that the U.S.
    Supreme Court has announced it will consider challenges to the constitutionality
    of Obamacare in Spring 2012.

    New revelations emerged
    in 2011 about the DOJ’s Black Panther scandal. Judicial Watch uncovered evidence
    that the liberal special interest group National Association for the Advancement
    of Colored People (NAACP) may have had an inappropriate amount of influence on
    the DOJ’s decision to drop its voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black
    Panther Party for Self Defense. This comes on the heels of sworn testimony that
    the Civil Rights Division of the Holder DOJ makes enforcement decisions based
    upon race.

    Most recently, Judicial
    Watch obtained shocking documents suggesting the Holder DOJ is conspiring with
    scandal-ridden Project Vote (President Obama’s former employer and ACORN front)
    to use the National Voter Registration Act to increase welfare voter
    registrations. One former ACORN employee (and current Project Vote Director of
    Advocacy), Estelle Rogers, is even helping to vet job candidates for the Justice
    Department’s Voting Rights Division! (ACORN and Project Vote have a long record
    of voter registration fraud.)

    Seeming to affirm
    ACORN’s hijacking of the DOJ, Holder recently said in a speech that he plans to
    use “the full weight” of the agency in 2012 to attack states that are enforcing
    laws that protect against fraud in the voting booths. This speech ended the
    pretense that the DOJ is independent from the Democratic National Committee and
    the Obama campaign – as it repeated almost verbatim the partisan arguments made
    by the Democratic Party against voter ID laws.

    Holder must go. Pick
    your reason – Black Panthers, race-based decision making, abandoning the Defense
    of Marriage Act, Fast and Furious killings and lies, or turning the DOJ into an
    arm of the radicalized left –- but Holder must go.

    The Waco incident needs to be revisited. Could be why that is why Clinton needed to create a phony blow job. Holder was deeply immersed in Waco, the Waco cover up along with Reno and Clinton. Then they moved on to Ruby Ridge and OKC. Possible involvement in the events followed by the cover ups.

The mystery man who was with McVey when they rented the truck has never been found ( and it was NOT his partners son ) . He and his pardner were helped along by " others " . Those others were quietly allowed to walk away . There is FAR MORE to the story .

    5, 2010. It appears Holder lied to Congress. (Judicial Watch sued the DOJ and
    the ATF to obtain Fast and Furious records. The Judicial Watch investigation
    continues.)

    Unfortunately, when it
    comes to Holder's corruption and abuse of office, Fast and Furious is just the
    tip of the iceberg.

    On February 23, 2011,
    Attorney General Eric Holder announced that DOJ lawyers would no longer defend
    the constitutionality of Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), as
    applied to homosexual couples. DOMA had passed Congress by a vote of 85–14 in
    the Senate and a vote of 342–67 in the House. President Clinton signed the act
    into law on September 21, 1996.

    Judicial Watch filed
    two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the DOJ (including one on
    behalf of the Family Research Council) for records related to this
    pro-homosexual marriage decision. This failure to defend this federal law is
    unprecedented and raises serious questions as to whether President
    Obama and Eric Holder are
    upholding their oaths of office and following the Constitution’s command to
    “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

    The DOJ continues to
    stonewall the release of information regarding Supreme Court Justice Elena
    Kagan’s participation in Obamacare discussions when she served as Solicitor
    General. In addition to forcing Judicial Watch to file a lawsuit to obtain this
    information, Holder’s DOJ thumbed its nose at Congress by failing to release
    this material to the Senate Judiciary Committee during Kagan’s judicial
    confirmation hearing. Holder continues to personally resist requests from
    Judicial Watch and Congress for additional information on this controversy.
    Kagan’s role in these discussions is especially significant now that the U.S.
    Supreme Court has announced it will consider challenges to the constitutionality
    of Obamacare in Spring 2012.

    New revelations emerged
    in 2011 about the DOJ’s Black Panther scandal. Judicial Watch uncovered evidence
    that the liberal special interest group National Association for the Advancement
    of Colored People (NAACP) may have had an inappropriate amount of influence on
    the DOJ’s decision to drop its voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black
    Panther Party for Self Defense. This comes on the heels of sworn testimony that
    the Civil Rights Division of the Holder DOJ makes enforcement decisions based
    upon race.

    Most recently, Judicial
    Watch obtained shocking documents suggesting the Holder DOJ is conspiring with
    scandal-ridden Project Vote (President Obama’s former employer and ACORN front)
    to use the National Voter Registration Act to increase welfare voter
    registrations. One former ACORN employee (and current Project Vote Director of
    Advocacy), Estelle Rogers, is even helping to vet job candidates for the Justice
    Department’s Voting Rights Division! (ACORN and Project Vote have a long record
    of voter registration fraud.)

    Seeming to affirm
    ACORN’s hijacking of the DOJ, Holder recently said in a speech that he plans to
    use “the full weight” of the agency in 2012 to attack states that are enforcing
    laws that protect against fraud in the voting booths. This speech ended the
    pretense that the DOJ is independent from the Democratic National Committee and
    the Obama campaign – as it repeated almost verbatim the partisan arguments made
    by the Democratic Party against voter ID laws.

    Holder must go. Pick
    your reason – Black Panthers, race-based decision making, abandoning the Defense
    of Marriage Act, Fast and Furious killings and lies, or turning the DOJ into an
    arm of the radicalized left –- but Holder must go.
