Holder, who left his post as the nation’s 82nd U.S. attorney general in 2015, recently made headlines when he publicly criticized FBI Director James B. Comey, who sent a letter to Congress on Friday about revisiting an inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails.
“I served with Jim Comey and I know him well. This is a very difficult piece for me to write. He is a man of integrity and honor. I respect him. But good men make mistakes,” Holder wrote in The Washington Post. “In this instance, he has committed a serious error with potentially severe implications.”
