WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr., the nation’s first black attorney general, will announce his resignation Thursday, ending a turbulent, six-year tenure in which his office addressed major issues, from banking scandals and terrorism to civil-rights cases, the Washington Times reported.
Sources familiar with the decision said Mr. Holder intends to leave the Department of Justice as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could last until next year, NPR first reported.
The president is not expected to name a replacement for Mr. Holder when he formally announces the attorney general’s resignation on Thursday afternoon at the White House. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/sep/25/eric-holder-stepping-down-attorney-general-report/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
