Attorney General Eric Hold plans on resigning from office as soon as possible. Over Labor Day weekend, Holder reportedly  informed the POTUS  he wanted to leave his post as Attorney General. As it stands, the Attorney General will be leaving his post as soon as a successor is found to replace him.

It is rumored that many other Democratic candidates such as Kathryn Ruemmler, James Cole, Devel Patrick and many other names are on the list. As of now, it is not clear who will be replacing Holder who is one of the original cabinet members from Obama’s 2009 elected board.

There has be controversy through out Holders career as Attorney General, one instance being his views on the 9/11 terror plot suspects. Holder was expected to deliver the suspects to military courts but instead had them set at New York City courts. Additionally, Holder failed to provide documents that were substantial for a FBI gun tracking operation.

Holder may possibly return to law after his resignation. The Attorney General was once a major corporate lawyer at the law firm Covington & Burling, the law firm where he spent years with clients.

The White House however stated that they would be delighted having Holder stay in office until the end of Obama’s term. Holder has done major work for Civil Rights, fought for gay rights, launched 20 plus investigations on corruption, and has reduced the sentences for nonviolent drug offenders as the first African American and the third longest serving Attorney General in history.
