Attorney General Eric Holder isn’t rushing for the exits.
Holder told The Washington Post that he plans to stay in his job “well into 2014.”
“I’ve made the determination – I’m not sure I’ve ever said this publicly – but I’m going to certainly stay in this job well into 2014,” he said.
“If you had asked me that six months ago, I’m not sure I would have given you that answer. I think I probably would have come up with a shorter time frame. But given the issues that I want to focus on and given the condition that they’re in, I think that staying into 2014 is necessary, but also something that I want to do.”
Holder has been a lightning rod for right-wing criticism – a number of Republicans have called for his resignation or impeachment over the years. He has not previously said what timeline he has for leaving office.
