Eric Holder to be pardoned later this year?

Well, that’s the report:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will step down this year, he said in an interview with the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin in the magazine’s Feb. 17 edition.

In a feature article, Mr. Holder said he plans on staying in his position “well into” the year.

Yeah, I probably wouldn’t want to be a Democratic executive branch official right now, either. More accurately: I wouldn’t want to be a Democratic executive branch official next year. Senate investigating committees traditionally have very little in the way of senses of humor when it comes to incompetent bureaucrats getting our law enforcement personnel killed; and it’s highly likely that the next Senate Majority Leader will find it, ah, convenient to revive that particular tradition. Best to bail now.

PS: Yeah, I figure that Eric Holder and Valerie Jarrett are both on the Presidential pardon short list. I also figure that it’s a short list, mostly because I don’t really think that Barack Obama really ‘gets’ this entire loyalty thing…
