An anonymous source in The New York Times says the White House is displeased by Attorney General Eric Holder's tin ear for scandal. It could be seen as a gentle nudge toward the door.
That’s one reading of a Sunday New York Times story that’s still got people in D.C. buzzing.
First off, we’ll say that no one currently in the administration is quoted in the piece as saying anything like “Holder should quit to save us grief.” But an unnamed “Democratic former official” does say that, pretty much.
“The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time,” says this anonymous source of Mr. Holder.
One of the administration’s main complaints about the attorney general is that he “does not manage or foresee problems,” adds this source.
