So yesterday, Barack Obama and the White House confirmed that Eric Holder has turned in his resignation as Attorney General and head of the Justice Department. But before you cheer, let us look at why he is resigning now. On Tuesday, federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson has ordered the Department of Justice to release documents to be used in the Operation Fast and Furious lawsuit by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. We also have the added incentive that Obama wants to appoint a new Attorney General while the Democrats still hold control of the U.S. Senate. Obama is getting assistance from none other than Al Sharpton, of all people, in selecting a new AG.
