Posted on September 25, 2014

NASHVILLE, Sept. 25, 2014 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder, who is announcing today he will resign as soon as his successor is confirmed:

“I hope the president will nominate an attorney general this time who will faithfully apply the laws Congress has passed and not seek to impose policies the president wishes Congress had passed. The role of the top law enforcement officer in the country is to enforce the law—not to advance the president’s agenda.”
