U.S. Attorney General Holder hospitalized as precaution for faintness


U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder


WASHINGTON  — The Justice Department says Attorney General Eric Holder was taken to the hospital today as a precaution after experiencing faintness and shortness of breath at work.

A department statement said said Holder was “resting comfortably and in good condition” at a Washington hospital after feeling the symptoms during a morning meeting with senior staff.

The department said he was alert, talking with his doctors and undergoing further evaluation.

Holder, a trim 63-year-old, is known inside the department for bypassing the elevator and taking the stairs at a brisk pace to reach his 5th-floor office. He also plays basketball.

The White House says President Barack Obama was notified and wished Holder a “speedy recovery.”
