The resignation of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was welcome news for some Tennessee lawmakers.
Holder announced on Thursday that he would be stepping down from the position.
“During his nearly six-year tenure, Eric Holder vastly overstepped his bounds as attorney general,” U.S. Congressman Chuck Fleischmann said.
“From ‘Fast and Furious’ to his handling of the IRS targeting scandal, Holder abused the power of his office,” the Ooltewah Republican continued.
