Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that he could exit the Obama administration despite the president securing a second term.
Holder made the apparently off-the-cuff remarks during a speech to law students at the University of Baltimore School of Law on Thursday, according to Reuters.
According to the report, the attorney general said he still needed to consult with the president and his family before making a decision on a second term. And, Holder said, he needed to ask himself, “Do I have some gas left in the tank?”
Discussion of whether he would continue on as Attorney General was not included in prepared remarks circulated by the Justice Department.
