Sunday show roundup: What does the future hold for Eric Holder?

Attorney General Eric Holder was the focus of discussion across the Sunday show landscape, with Republicans leveling criticism and Democrats defending the head of the Justice Department.

“The attorney general has to ask himself the question, ‘Is he really able to effectively serve the president of the United States and the American people under the present circumstances?’ That’s a decision he’d have to make,” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said on CBS’s “Face The Nation.”

Holder faces scrutiny over his congressional testimony on the subject of investigating journalists.

Meanwhile, congressional Democrats came to Holder's defense. “I haven’t seen anything that would prevent him from continuing to do his job,” said Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.).
