John Fund, national affairs correspondent for National Review Online, told Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that if President Obama attempts via executive order to grant amnesty to eight million illegal aliens “it would be the equivalent of ritual political suicide and most political parties don’t do that.”

Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Radio channel 125, the conservative Washington insider, former writer for The Wall Street Journal, The American Spectator, and frequent contributor to Breitbart News argued that Obama is executing a classic “bait and switch.” Fund contends that the administration wants “conservatives to go crazy talking about impeachment and amnesty, driving them up the wall with selective leaks, just like they did with the birther issue. This is whack-a-mole.”

The truth is, according to Fund, that “Democrats in congress would not allow Obama to have that kind of sweeping amnesty.”...

Fund quipped that one of the reason Eric Holder does not want to leave office is because his new occupation would be “permanent witness.” According to Fund, Holder would no longer have the ability to dodge all the subpoenas and requests for depositions that he now can as the Attorney General. Fund points out that Holder was the first Attorney General in the history of the nation to be held in contempt of congress and he ignored that citation.
