Statement From Rev. Al Sharpton Regarding The Resignation of US Attorney General Eric Holder

“The resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder is met with both pride and disappointment by the Civil Rights community.”

“We are proud that he has been the best Attorney General on civil rights in U.S. history and disappointed because he leaves at a critical time when we need his continued diligence most. We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General Holder. His accomplishments in working to protect American’s from terrorism, fighting to protect voter rights, challenging unfair sentencing, directing U.S. attorneys on fair prosecution, and being the only Attorney General to visit the site of a civil rights complaint in Ferguson must be noted in American history.

Though we would have liked to have seen other areas more aggressively dealt with, such as closing Guantanamo Bay, his general service has been more than exemplary. As I stood with the families of Michael Brown of Ferguson, MO and Eric Garner of Staten Island, NY, and called on the Justice Department to take over the criminal investigation of those cases at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. today, we hope Attorney General Holder will authorize this before his departure or that it becomes the first order of business for his successor.”

“Policing of Americans is the critical challenge of today, especially Blacks and Browns in particular. We will aggressively pursue the Justice Department’s involvement in dealing with these matters in his remaining days and in the days ahead of his successor.”

-Reverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network

DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on Attorney General Eric Holder

Washington, DC –Today, President Obama accepted the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder. DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

“On behalf of the Democratic Party, I would like to thank and congratulate Eric Holder for his service as our 82nd Attorney General. General Holder will leave office as one of the longest-serving Attorneys General in our nation’s history, and his contributions have been invaluable to President Obama’s administration and the country.”

“Attorney General Holder has fought fiercely to protect the human and civil constitutional rights of all Americans. Among his accomplishments at the Department of Justice, of particular note, is his emphasis on ensuring that all Americans can exercise their right to vote. Despite opposition from the Supreme Court and Congressional Republicans, Attorney General Holder and DOJ have been stalwart defenders of voting rights threatened by state legislative action.”

“I have full confidence President Obama’s choice for our nation’s next Attorney General will continue the important and immeasurable civil rights work being done at the Department of Justice under Attorney General Holder and that Senate Republicans will be responsible and not recklessly obstruct the process of confirming a replacement.”
