Eric Holder Owes His Job To Obama's Puppet Master
President Barack Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett has played a “very important” role in Attorney General Eric Holder staying in office, the author of a new book detailing Obama’s war on terror tactics and intra-administration relationships told The Daily Caller.
“Obviously, Valerie Jarrett is an extremely influential person inside the White House,” Daniel Klaidman, the author of the forthcoming “Kill or Capture: The War on Terror and the Soul of the Obama Presidency,” said in a phone interview. “She’s got the trust and confidence of the president and first lady — it’s a relationship that goes way back.”
“She’s been a very important source of counsel and advice to Holder and also has kind of helped him sort of navigate the politics and personalities of the White House,” he continued. “Any cabinet secretary, they all know that the power center is in the White House and they need to have those kinds of relationships.”
