This will make for an interesting confirmation hearing. Holder was less competent than his boss. Interestingly, O-Lite (Patrick) has said he has no interest. I think The President will hear a lot of the same... no thanks!

He was one of the most racially divisive AGs ever. Just like the President.

What a "coincidence"  Shocked

On the very day the Judge in Holder's Contempt of Congress case orders the release of documents (that were being held under “executive privilege”), Eric Holder resigns.

The US Attorney (who reports to Eric Holder) refused to prosecute the case, so Judicial Watch filed a FOIA (which Holder ignored) and JW took them to court. This has been going on for 2 years. Obama appointed Judge has refused to roll over for Holder.

Holder wanted yet another "delay" to take them right up to the Mid-Term election - he didn't get it. This was after years of trying to get the case dismissed and one delay after another.

Yes, good point!

The House voted 255-67 (17 Democrats voted in favor) two years ago to hold Holder in contempt of Congress when he refused to turn over documents from Fast and Furious. According to the Times, Holder is "the first sitting Cabinet member ever to face such a congressional rebuke."
