Senate Republicans Hunt for Trophy

Its a ploy.  They are hoping for a poisonous piece of information on Holder to surface, something more substantive than the background noise of his role in the Rich pardon 8 years ago.  If something does they have their trophy.  If not he gets confirmed about a week from now.
