AG Holder Resigning from Obama Administration

The Associated Press is reporting that Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning.

The White House said Thursday that President Barack Obama planned to announce Holder's departure later Thursday. The White House said Holder plans to remain at the Justice Department until his successor is in place.

The 63-year-old former judge and prosecutor took office in early 2009 as the U.S. government grappled with the worst financial crisis in decades and with divisive questions on the handling of captured terrorism suspects, issues that helped shape his six-year tenure as the country's top law enforcement official. He is the fourth-longest serving attorney general in U.S. history.

Good riddance you certified POS.

Richard @ 9/25/2014 2:10 PM

Don't care. Waiting his indictment.

Danny Sanchez (military o @ 9/25/2014 2:15 PM

Holder is racist, hate-mongering, crooked scum, nearly as despicable as the man he serves. He belongs behind bars, and I only wish I could be the one to slap the S&W bracelets on him.

Mav @ 9/25/2014 2:24 PM

Hip Hip hooray

Robert Simpson @ 9/25/2014 2:25 PM

Holder will be gone but his legacy of racism, bias, and pattern of law-breaking will live on.

sgtken @ 9/25/2014 2:32 PM

Made My Day !!!

Capt. Crunch @ 9/25/2014 2:36 PM

Thank God, Obama, next.

jon @ 9/25/2014 2:44 PM

Jason @ 9/25/2014 3:01 PM

By bye racist.

TheRookie @ 9/25/2014 3:04 PM

Thank god the cop hating & killing (Brian Terry) scumbag Erik' von With-Holder @ Dept. of No-Justice is leaving. Scary part is who will the uniform hating POS POTUS replace him with.

ktyhawk @ 9/25/2014 3:15 PM

What does it say about the U.S. A.G's office when all of the comments from LEOs are very negative about the AG? I'll add mine... good riddance you race baiting ass hat.

stan @ 9/25/2014 3:18 PM

Thank goodness. Not soon enough. So, who got what dirt on him that he suddenly quit? Must be something really big, like forgetting to leave a tip for the server at Denny's. Or parking tickets........

Brian @ 9/25/2014 3:43 PM

What a great early Christmas Gift!

Ray C @ 9/25/2014 3:59 PM

Heres your hat, there is the door. I have to say he was one of the worst AG I can remember in history. It seems all he did was stoke the fires of any race incident that occurred under his tenure. Pompous, arrogant and certainly right along the lines of our president. Good riddance.

Tbow426 @ 9/25/2014 4:00 PM

Probably going to Ferguson and represent the "unarmed teenager's) parents.

TXCop @ 9/25/2014 4:43 PM

Can't wait too see the worst AG in our countries history serve time in prison. POS if there ever was one .

All L.E. reading this. It was reported that Cop Hating, Race Baiting, Riot Inciting Al "Cocaine Snorting CI7" Shark-ton is making input to the White House for With-Holders replacement. That I don't doubt. Contact (let anyone you know to) your U.S. Reps. to not allow this to occur. This POTUS is the next that needs to resign. The thugs he surrounds himself with is a disgrace.

Next we gotta work on getting his butt buddy obumer as a cell mate, In general population, of course! Blues, Stay Safe!

Steve @ 9/25/2014 6:43 PM

Good, scum-bag needs to be in jail anyway. No presidential pardon either...butt than-again :( Be he's an o bama boy, what is coming now...has to be worse...has to be. All in the long plan to disrupt our Country as we once knew it. It won't get better when any o bama appointee. We would be better off with a taliaban in the office. Maybe? Darker days are coming.

Steve @ 9/25/2014 6:45 PM

Probably a taliban, that would be par for the course. Fo-yaa

Tom Ret @ 9/25/2014 7:03 PM

Holder will go down in history as the worst attorney general in the nation's history and generally loathed by police nationwide. His service has been on par with our president, who quite frankly, is an embarrassment.

Jack Betz @ 9/25/2014 7:38 PM


UncleMike @ 9/25/2014 7:56 PM

That idiot, and his leash jerking handler "0", have done more to damage race relations in this country than all of the Plantation owners in the Antebellum South put together. Good men, like Dr. Ben Carson and Col Allen West, will have to overcome the mountain of crap that Holder and "0" have placed in the way of their Political aspirations.

Ima Leprechaun @ 9/26/2014 12:51 AM

I feel so sorry for all the racist bloggers on here, who will you hate how?

ssc1911 @ 9/26/2014 6:31 AM

Holder, did resign but isn't leaving until his replacement is confirmed. That isn't known who will be the next US Attorney General. Holder is a disgrace to that position as was Janet Reno, under Slick Willie. Sad that Holder wasn't indicted for Fast 'N Furious and other scandals. He and the rest don't represent law enforcement or justice that is fair. Holder was also in Clinton's Administration.
Don't know where he will go after leaving Dept.of Justice. He is a die hard liberal and used the race card when necessary. No loss that he is leaving but how will his replacement be and their views, mission etc. Will the new US Atty.General enforce laws fairly or not?

Bill @ 9/26/2014 7:34 AM

He can run, but he can't hide. His mountain of crimes will be prosecuted.

Another glad LEO @ 9/26/2014 9:11 AM

As has been said, what does it say that every comment here from LEOs is strongly negative? I'm adding mine, good riddance!! Far too late!

JJ Golliday @ 9/26/2014 9:43 AM

The Reverend (?) Al "Not So Sharp" Sharpton is advising the President on who should be Holder's successor! Really??? God help us all. Oh yeah, good riddance to ass hat Holder.

Captain @ 9/26/2014 10:57 AM

only good decision he has made. good bye

Federali @ 9/26/2014 12:02 PM

Oh no! Who will provide the Cartels with weapons now!?! Good riddance you race-baiting, cop hating, criminal loving, POS! Hope to see you at your indictment soon.

Gary Albert @ 9/26/2014 1:42 PM

Well, at least we started to take the trash out.
Good riddance.. Now all we have left is to pay this scumball benefits from our taxes, till the day he dies. Makes me wanna cry...👮

Brian @ 9/27/2014 6:59 PM

I feel so sorry for all the racist bloggers on here, who will you hate how?

No, I'm not a Racist Blogger. What I hate is Injustice. When I look at Holder and Obama and Sharpton and Jackson.... I hate what that are doing to this nation under the guise of Justice! These men are poster children for the word NO JUSTICE!

Ryan @ 9/28/2014 11:15 PM

He should of left office as soon as he made the comment during the Fergusion incident telling people "Don't worry people of Fergusion we will get him." He was just another idiot along with Jesse Jackson and Sharpton that were trying to take advantage of a bad situation and get their 15 minutes of fame. He is one of the stupid reasons that the Fergusion situation has gone before Grand Jury, and tried to make the case one sided.

Kelly @ 9/29/2014 4:26 AM I understand why the black people pull the race card...listen to all you hate mongers. I am ashamed to be white right now.

Lt Dan @ 9/29/2014 6:58 AM

If there is as big a shift in the mid-term elections as expected his successor will be closely scrutinized. I too say "don't let the door hit you".

Richard Hightower @ 9/29/2014 12:19 PM

Hopefully, only the start of MUCH more to come. Now we need to prosecute this SOB along with the rest of the Obama Klan.

Johnny Law @ 9/29/2014 1:06 PM

Good bye to the biggest racist to ever be Attorney General!! He will probably be replaced by Al Sharpton. Because someone has to protect the Black panthers and the other thugs running around commiting crimes from the police. Good bye you POS!!

westcoastleo @ 10/1/2014 12:47 AM

I hope he has a short retirement and dies of cancer.........

Sgt. Mike @ 10/3/2014 2:24 PM

The next guy will probably be worse. Only Obama could find someone worse than Janet Reno.
