Cole Leaving DOJ, Continuing Exodus; Worked On Prison, Marijuana Reform


Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole, like his boss Eric Holder, soon leave the Justice Department. The Los Angeles Times says the coming departure of Cole, who for four years has been the day-to-day boss of the department, adds to a growing leadership vacuum at the federal government's top law enforcement agency. Holder plans to leave as soon as a successor is confirmed. The Obama administration has not announced a replacement.
