BALTIMORE (CBSDC) Attorney General Eric Holder might not be sticking around for a second term.
Holder told law school students at the University of Baltimore School of Law that he does not know if he will stay in his job.
Thats something that Im in the process now of trying to determine, Holder said. I have to think about, can I contribute in a second term?
Holder says he needs to sit down with his family and President Obama to see if he wants to continue on the job.
[I have to] really ask myself the question about, do I think there are things that I still want to do? Do I have gas left in the tank? Its been an interesting and tough four years, so I really just dont know, Holder told students.
Holder has been under fire from congressional Republicans for what he knew about the botched Fast and Furious operation where the U.S. allowed guns to be sold illegally in hopes to track Mexican drug cartels. Holder was found in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents regarding the operation. President Obama has invoked executive privilege.
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was reportedly killed with one of the guns used in the ATF operation.
Terrys December 2010 death lifted the veil on the bungled federal governments gun-smuggling investigation that was later the subject of congressional probes.
Federal authorities have faced heavy criticism for allowing suspected straw gun buyers to walk away from shops with weapons, rather than arrest the suspects and seize the guns there.
Two rifles bought by a gun-smuggling ring that was being monitored through Fast and Furious were found at the scene. But authorities have declined to say whether the murder weapon in Terrys death was linked to a purchase

If I also kill a whoooole bunch of people, but then announce that I’m WILLING to change my job MAYBE, is that, then, OK...?
I mean could I then escape prosecution..?
I’m not talking whites, OK? Not mainly. I mean, like, just 300 Mexicans.
And a couple cops.
He’s probably just planning ahead for his new job on the Supreme Court!!!
He’ll be leaving faster than you can say ‘furious’.
Bet he was hoping for an Obama lose so he could get a Lame Duck pardon....
That means that BHO will need to find a new incompetent, contra-legal, lighting rod to cause him embarassment and to debase the faith the people have in their Department of Justice.
Here comes Deval Patrick.
Leaving for a country that doesn’t have an extradition treaty?
Yeah, it would be hard to serve as AG while sitting in jail....which is where he should be. I can only imagine the next AG would be hand picked from the New Black Panthers.
Self banish himself to Singapore.
But he should be careful there or he could get himself caned. (One n)
He SHOULD be in jail. He SHOULD’VE been fired. He SHOULD AND MUST GO, but I’m afraid of who’ll replace him; A communist transgender midget, maybe?
Oh, come on Barry, pick Sarah Palin for AG. Do something BOLD that you think will scare us. Please scare us. Please, please,please..........
AG Shabazz? I’ll bet it’ll be a lesbian though.
Mr. Holder, good bye and not a moment too soon.
doesn’t matter now because the fix was in , these results did not make sense , there is no way military votes went even in VA and that is pure B/S
The 4 year fix was in and now he;s done his job for the fix and can go
Better get, while the pardon-getting is good.
I was just thinking the same thing, very frightening thought.
be another homosexual in his place to push their agenda and try and tell us that homosexuals are just good lucky going happy people who shoudl be ale to play family
I think you are right. Holder will be on the Supreme Court soon. His confirmation will sail through the Senate. We are doomed.
