Power Line - A "proud tradition" Eric Holder did not take pride in

Power Line - A "proud tradition" Eric Holder did not take pride in: "Holder apparently failed to disclose his involvement in this brief when he was up for confirmation early last year, even though the Senate questionnaire he was required to fill out specifically requested such information and directed him to provide to the Senate Judiciary Committee copies of any briefs filed with the Supreme Court. He disclosed three amicus briefs but made no mention of this one -- or another one renewing his support for Padilla when the case returned to the Supreme Court again in late 2005. . . .Had Holder disclosed these briefs to the Senate Judiciary Committee, no doubt he would have been extensively questioned about the views expressed in them. It is disappointing, and perhaps troubling, that he did not."
