From the Daily Beast:
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign ratcheted up its attack on the director of the FBI on Sunday, circulating a draft letter critical of James Comey to former federal prosecutors.
The letter was signed and provided to The Daily Beast by Elkan Abramowitz, a former chief of the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. The Clinton campaign released the letter on Sunday night, signed by nearly 100 former federal prosecutors including Eric Holder, who was the attorney general under President Obama and an assistant attorney general under President Clinton.
So in other words, when Hillary says jump, Eric Holder and his other cronies shout “HOW HIGH?”:
And they comply, immediately. https://t.co/rYqNfHQ4zL

Also keep in mind, there’s some history between Comey — who was going after fugitive billionaire Clinton supporter Marc Rich and Eric Holder who helped Rich get his pardon:
