Eric Holder may be looking for his own administration.
The former Attorney General under President Obama visited “The Late Show” Monday and opened up about the possibility of running for President.
“I was looking to see potential contributors...and cabinet members,” Holder, 67 joked to host Stephen Colbert at the audience applause.
“I’m thinking about it, and what I’ve said is I’d make a determination sometime early next year. My focus really now is 2018, the midterms, and trying to make sure that Democrats take back the Senate, take back the House and do well, importantly, at the state level.
More on Eric Holder:
“We’re going to be picking half the people, right now, who will be doing redistricting in 2021 and we have a real problem in this country with partisan gerrymandering. I want to make sure that we elect as many people at the governor level and the state legislative level so that, when 2021 comes, we have a fair redistricting process.”
Holder, who ran the Justice Department from 2009 to 2015, has been a strident critic of President Trump since his election. He currently works as a partner at the D.C. law firm Covington & Burling.
