BREAKING: Eric Holder Stepping Down as Attorney General

BREAKING: Eric Holder Stepping Down as Attorney General

National Public Radio is announcing that Eric Holder is stepping down as Attorney General. 

I’m sure NPR is in mourning, but before we start our Happy Dance, the resignation will not be immediate.  He won’t leave until his successor is approved, which could last into next year.

Let’s make a short list of his outrages, shall we?

Refusing to defend a law defining marriage as one man/one woman.

• Suing the states of Texas and North Carolina over enacting voter identification laws.

Defending Black Panther voter intimidation, using racist language. 

Remember this? Defended by Eric Holder.

Stay tuned, folks. I’m sure Obama will find someone just as egregious as Holder to take his place.

UPDATE:  11:00 am, CDT. Could Democratic political peril be the reason for Holder’s departure? 

UPDATE, Part 2: This from the ever-diligent Sharyl Atkisson. Can you say “Fast and Furious?”

UPDATE, Part 3: Al Sharpton claims that his group, National Action Network, is talking with the White House on choosing the next Attorney General. I’m sure this will end well.

UPDATE, Part 4: Along with Sharyl Attkisson, Judicial Watch firmly believes that Holder’s resignation is tied to the Fast and Furious scandal, and the contempt case against Holder will proceed even after his resignation.

UPDATE, Part 5: Speculation as to who will replace Holder. Let’s face it — it won’t be Trey Gowdy.

  • Stacy says:

    So it’s too late to impeach, but can he still be prosecuted?

  • Kate says:

    Not Obama but still sweet.

  • wfjag says:

    “He won’t leave until his successor is approved,”

    So, that makes it dependent on who BHO nominates. To keep the mimes alive that Republicans are obstructionists and hate people of color, that could be in 2017, or thereafter.

  • Eleanor in Hell says:

    I don’t mean to be a wet blanket or a party-pooper, but this Holder news reminds me of a certain Philly video that is of what nightmares are made.

  • Xavier says:

    The next AG will be CAIR approved. Muslim is the new black.

    And Rush was toying with the idea of Justice Holder.

    I’m feeling queasy.

  • Xavier says:

    Now I’m not a political strategist, and I’m just conjecturing out of the wild blue yonder here, but…

    Doesn’t resigning, but staying on the job, let Holder do anything he wants with complete immunity from impeachment threats? Obama can intentionally nominate unacceptable AG candidates and tie up Congress indefinitely, keeping Holder in place as long as they want. If push comes to shove, an acceptable candidate can be paraded into Congress to finish out the AG slot for whatever remains of Obama’s term, and Holder can walk away with a pardon.

    • Kim Quade says:

      Hmm, you don’t think Obama & Co. will do anything underhanded, do you?
      Bears, woods. . .

    • Sylvia says:

      Let’s not forget about Mumia Abu-Jamal and a likely exit move (sentence commutation to time-served) by Barack “Free Mumia” Obama. If Philly cops don’t interfere, the sky’s the limit politically for good old Wesley Cook.
