Deception

The pardon of fugitive financier Mark Rich is another scandal that has tainted Holder's career. He "made assumptions that turned out not to be true," he said during his confirmation, but former FBI director Louis Freeh in his defense said Holder had allowed himself "to be used" by the Clinton White House and had been deceived during the pardon process.
