"AG Holder Reportedly Staying On For Start of Second Obama Term"

Several outlets are reporting that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to stay on for at least part of President Obama’s second term. The Wall Street Journal reports Holder “has accepted the president’s request to stay on, though for how long has yet to be settled,” and sources tell Fox News Holder will stay “for about a year.” Holder revealed during remarks earlier this month that was mulling a departure in Obama’s second term. Holder faces new challenges in a second term, as the Department of Justice comes under fire for following protocol in reporting Gen. David Petraeus’ affair, and Washington and Colorado await reaction to new state marijuana laws.
