Eric Holder To Stay In Obama Administration Beyond First Term: Report

Attorney General Eric Holder is reportedly staying on for an unspecified time beyond President Barack Obama's first term, according to Fox News.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Holder had accepted President Barack Obama's request to stay on, but the timeline had yet to be settled. The New York Post reported on Nov. 13 that Holder would stay on.

Holder told an audience at the University of Baltimore on Nov. 8 that he was still sorting out if he would stay on. He said, speaking of his thought process, "Do I think that there are things that I still want to do? Do I have some gas left in the tank?"

The GOP-controlled House charged Holder with Contempt of Congress over the "Fast And Furious" gun-running scandal in July. The Justice Department did not pursue charges.

The Justice Department did not immediately return a request for comment.
