Holder Explains Delay in U.S. Attorney Nominations
By Stephanie Woodrow | October 16, 2021 4:38 pm

During an interview with NPR’s “All Things Considered” Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder said the delay in the nomination and confirmation of U.S. Attorneys is due in part to the politicization during the Bush administration. Holder said he is being cautious in naming U.S. Attorneys because he wants “to get this right” so that the attorneys will be in a position to “enforce the law in an impartial, nonpolitical way.” He added that between 60 and 65 candidates have either been nominated or vetted. Holder said he hopes the process can be completed by the first part of 2010.
