Former Attorney General Eric Holder lashed out at journalist and author Paul Sperry on Twitter Wednesday, telling Sperry that he should “shut the hell up” about federal prosecutor Molly Gaston’s donations to former President Barack Obama.

On Tuesday, Sperry had tweeted that Gaston, an assistant U.S. Attorney in Washington D.C., had signed off on a letter informing the attorney for former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe that the government would not pursue charges against McCabe.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sperry tweeted that Gaston “is [a] Democrat who’s given thousands to Dems including Obama & who once worked for Dem side of House Oversight & whose mother worked for WaPo [The Washington Post].”

Holder replied, “Why don’t you shut the hell up. Your bias is showing. I bet you’ve never been a prosecutor or have any idea how DOJ works. People like you-who want to use the justice system for political reasons-are both dangerous and ignorant. The case was-like you-an obvious loser.”

Sean Davis of The Federalist weighed in, “The first ever AG to be held in contempt of Congress for hiding documents detailing his illegal efforts to run guns to violent Mexican drug cartels is now threatening reporters and telling them to shut up.”

Sperry responded, “Turns out Eric Holder works with the father of the AUSA who signed the McCabe get-of-jail-free card. Her father and Holder are partners at Covington & Burling LLP in Washington.”

Sperry wasn’t done. “Talk about no firewall between the attorney general and president — Holder was Obama’s wingman and their wives were BFFs, all united in the same racialist agenda,” he added.

“Eric Holder completely politicized DOJ so he has a lot of gall weighing in on this issue,” Sperry also tweeted.

On Wednesday, Holder declared that Supreme Court justices should be limited to only serving 18 years. “18 years is enough for an unelected official – Supreme Court justice – wielding such power. Each president gets two picks which will decrease the political pressure in confirmation. Can be done by statute. Ask each candidate their position – including Trump. Reform is necessary,” he tweeted.
