Attorney General Eric Holder is Leaving The Obama Administration

via NPR

It is confirmed that Eric Holder Jr., the nation's first black U.S. attorney general, is resigning from his position as Attorney General of The United States after a  tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. 

Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon for fear he otherwise could be locked in to stay for much of the rest of President Obama's second term. Read More via NPR.
