I was not going to be content to simply be somebody who looked at my inbox and signed off on papers and moved them to my outbox. I wanted to be an activist attorney general in the best sense of the word.
Good riddance to one of the most bigoted, corrupt, and unscrupulous Attorneys General the United States has ever had. Too bad his replacement probably won’t be much better and he has had six year to staff the DOJ with people of his same ilk.
Washington (CNN) — Attorney General Eric Holder will announce Thursday that he will resign after six years at the Justice Department helm. The attorney general has agreed to remain in his post until the confirmation of his successor, a Justice Department official confirmed to CNN.
As a side note, the timing suggests that Obama wants to get Holder’s replacement confirmed before the new senate comes into office. He must be seeing the Republicans taking back the senate in November.
