United States Attorney General Holder holds a news conference announcing updates on investigation of Brown shooting in Ferguson Missouri, in Washington

A man who has made a mockery of the importance of the Department of Justice being non-political, is finally getting out. He’s done so much damage in so little time, I would prefer for Holder to be finding out that orange is the new black, and perhaps some day he will, but for now Obama’s most voceiferous enforcers is leaving. I hope the door hits him on the way out.

From Fast and Furious to essentially refusing to prosecute any criminal wrong doing in the Obama administration, Holder has done so much damage to the rule of law itself by playing games with the justice system in order to benefit his political patron.

I’m not too excited only because I know whoever his replacement is, will be just as bad. We must, at some point, make sure that Holder and everyone else in this administration who should be criminally invistigated, is. For now, adios Eric.

U.S. Attorney General Holder, a close Obama ally, to step down

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, an unapologetic liberal voice and one of President Barack Obama’s closest allies, will announce on Thursday he is stepping down after a term marked by advances in civil rights and frequent battles with Republicans in Congress.

Holder, the nation’s first black chief prosecutor, will remain in office until a successor is nominated and confirmed, the Justice Department said. Obama is scheduled to join him for the announcement at the White House at 4:30 p.m. ET (2030 GMT).

Holder’s departure after nearly six years sets up a potentially tense confirmation battle with Republicans in a lame-duck U.S. Senate session scheduled after the Nov. 4 midterm elections, when Republicans hope to capture a Senate majority that would take office in January.

    A legacy of high unemployment and hopelessness among those he purported to champion.

    Attorney General Claire McCaskill?
    Attorney General Kamala Harris?
    Attorney General Amy Klobuchar?
    Attorney General Mark Pryor?

    Those are some of the names that the St. Louis Post Dispatch is throwing around.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish. Unfortunately we’ll probably get more poo poo in his place.

    This comes 6 years too late if you ask me!

    Now if only we could get Obama to step down, then we would have something!

    Holder was perhaps the most corrupt and vicious Cabinet appointee in history. Sadly, if he manages to avoid prison, he’ll cash in on the banquet and lecture circuit along with getting a hefty advance for his memoirs. We can only hope that he’ll be writing them from a prison cell.

    Why is his departure slated for after the midterms? Just leave already. Ugh!
