Eric Holder and the Lonely President

The attorney general's departure removes one of Obama's few close friends in the administration.

U.S. President Barack Obama (L) meets with Attorney General Eric Holder (R) in the Oval Office of the White House August 18, 2014 in Washington, DC. President Obama was to receive an update on the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has called in the National Guard to 'help restore peace and order and to protect the citizens of Ferguson,' according to a statement from the governor's office.
