Attorney general Eric Holder is somebody who youve worked with, and now youre on opposite sides of the Justice Departments actions against BP. Whats that like?
The attorney general was US Attorney when I was deputy attorney general, and weve been very good friends ever since. Its been purely professional. We like and respect each other. We see each other all the time. I know his deputy and his associate attorney general from other lives. They expect me to do my job. I expect them to do their job, but all of our communications are characterized by mutual respect
