BREAKING: Eric Holder to Resign

NPR's Carrie Johnson, who covers the Department of Justice for Morning Edition, broke news today that Attorney General Eric Holder is due to announce his resignation today.

While Holder has seen his fair share of controversy during his time as Attorney General, Hot Air's Noah Rothman made a fair point:

The announcement is expected for later today.

About 15 minutes after the initial report broke on NPR, AP tweeted that the White House confirmed that Holder is indeed resigning.

While it's currently uncertain as to who Obama will appoint as Holder's replacement, MSNBC was quick to push current Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (D), and if flight plans are any indication, they may be on the right track.
