Eric Holder to step down this year, report says -- By Kelly Riddell, The Washington Times

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.

Last November, Mr. Holder, the first black attorney general, told CBS News he didn't have "any plans" to step down.
