Former DOJ Attorney: Eric Holder Could Stop SWATings 'in 48 Hours'

Former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams took to Twitter in the wake of the SWATing of Red State's Erik Erickson and declared:

Eric Holder or an ethical USAttorney could stop this swatting in 48 hours. Violates 18 USC 241. Online efforts should be directed at #DOJ.

USC § 241 states:

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;

As Adams points out, these SWATings are an attempt to silence the First Amendment rights of bloggers. He asks in his tweet to Dana Loesch from Breitbart News; "Where is #ericholder?"

The three bloggers that have been SWATed so far are all self-identified conservatives. That may answer the question of where Mr. Holder is.
