California enlists Eric Holder to defend against Donald Trump

SACRAMENTO — Vowing to protect California’s values and constitutional guarantees, the state Legislature has selected former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to serve as outside counsel to advise the legal strategy against the incoming Trump administration.
Holder served as the nation’s top lawyer from 2009 through 2015, focusing on civil rights and criminal justice reform.
“With the upcoming change in administrations, we expect that there will be extraordinary challenges for California in the uncertain times ahead,” their joint statement said.
Holder will help legislators resist any attempts to roll back progress on issues like climate change, health care, civil rights and immigration, California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de Leon and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced Wednesday.
He’ll lead a team of attorneys from the firm Covington & Burling.
