Bill Yeomans for Civil Rights Division chief?
By Mary Jacoby | January 15, 2022 1:20 pm

Eric Holder at his confirmation hearing today singled out a 23-year former veteran of the Civil Rights Division, Bill Yeomans, as the kind of person he’d like to see back in charge at DOJ. 

In answering questions from Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) about the Brad Schlozman affair, Holder said he planned to “devote a hute amount of time looking at the Civil Rights Division and restoring that division.” Then he added: “I see someone sitting behind you, Billy Yeomans. He’s the kind of person who should be supervising people, teaching” young lawyers. Yeomans left DOJ in 2005 and is now Sen. Edward Kennedy’s (D-Mass.) Judiciary Committee counsel. He’s been a vocal critic of politicization of the division.
