Eric Holder Hospitalized as Precaution for Faintness

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department says Attorney General Eric Holder has been taken to the hospital as a precaution after experiencing faintness and shortness of breath at work.

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

The department says the 63-year-old attorney general is alert, talking with his doctors and undergoing further evaluation.

No additional information was immediately provided.

The White House says President Barack Obama has been notified and wishes Holder a “speedy recovery.”
