MIKULSKI STATEMENT ON ERIC HOLDER JR. RESIGNING AS ATTORNEY GENERAL
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.), Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee and the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies (CJS) Appropriations Subcommittee that funds the Department of Justice (DOJ), today issued the following statement on Eric Holder Jr.’s decision to step down as Attorney General:
“During his six years as Attorney General, Eric Holder Jr., supported our federal law enforcement agents in the fight against criminals and terrorists and was a strong advocate for civil rights and criminal justice reform.
“In the dark days of sequester and shutdown, Attorney General Holder worked closely with me in my role as CJS Chairwoman to keep DOJ and its people on the job and on the case.
“As one of the longest serving members of President Obama’s cabinet, he has served his nation and his President well.
"I thank him for his dedicated service to our country and wish him well in the future.”
