Holder to resign as attorney general

Eric Holder, the nation’s first black attorney general, plans to announce his resignation Thursday, a White House official confirmed to the Washington Examiner.

Holder has been in office since 2009, making him the fourth-longest-serving attorney general in U.S. history. He'll stay in his post until his successor is named.

Among the key issues faced during his tenure were civil rights enforcement and the investigation and prosecution of suspected terrorists. Holder has also been a controversial figure, raising the ire of many over issues such as the troubled "Fast and Furious" operation.

He has been increasingly “adamant” about his desire to leave soon, to prevent being locked into staying in office for the rest of President Obama’s second term, NPR reported.

The decision was his alone — though it included several discussions with President Obama and one final meeting over Labor Day weekend at the White House, sources told NPR.

He told Justice Department staff the news Thursday morning. The leading candidate for his job is Solicitor General Don Verrilli, NPR reported.

Shoot I just posted this as well and blasted it to everyone in an email.  Crap!  I guess I was just too excited! *lol*

No worries! Multiple reports aren't a problem and are sometimes useful if using different sources. Multiple sources helps to verify things sometimes.

Nah it was basically the same info so I deleted it.  I was busy putting up the interview from Ben Carson running in 2016 and she beat me to it.  lol

Sorry Laura, I've been there and done that many times.

Link in email does not function- page not found! Yikes!

Read the replies above for "why".  At least they'll come to the site and see Norma's discussion.  Sorry

Suzie, its from the Washington Examiner.

Missed typing in the "g" in washington.  Just corrected it.

Hhhhmmmm....sounds like the kitchen is just too blazing hot for him to stay anymore. Wonder how he'll melt away to continue to protect himself and the commies in the White House and congress!?!?

Is this the beginning of the end for Obama?... he won't have anyone to shield him from all the crooked and criminal stunts that Holder pulled for six years. Is there still a chance to charge him in criminal court for Fast & Furious, and throw him in jail for a long, long time? Will Trey Gowdy do it?    

I really like these pictures, Lanyon.  They'll find somebody. One of their backers will make sure of it.

I think Obama will find someone equally as bad (if possible) as Holder.  The question is:  Will the representatives hand stamp him as they have all others?

Most likely worse than holder, that's the commie's usual way of replacing people, picking those even more radical than the ones leaving. I think the replacement will happen by year end, especially if the senate goes to the GOP in November. Reid will find a way to ram the replacement through!
