Attorney General Eric Holder Will Resign

The Hill reports “Attorney General Eric Holder, one of President Obama’s longest serving lieutenants, will announce his resignation Thursday, according to the Justice Department. His tenure was also marred by controversy. Holder resisted calls for his resignation in the wake of the administration’s arms trafficking Operation Fast & Furious, in which federal authorities lost track of hundreds of guns, some of which ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

The House voted in 2012 to Holder in contempt of Congress over his refusal to comply with a subpoena issued as part of a Republican investigation into the botched operation.

Holder will remain at the Department of Justice until his post is filled, and no successor will be named Thursday. The Justice Department official suggested Holder could remain on the job until December.”
