The U.S. Attorneys’ Manual requires Justice Department lawyers to withdraw from matters in which a conflict of interest exists or where there is an appearance of a conflict of interest or loss of impartiality. The manual outlines recusal for what it describes as “a personal interest or professional relationship with parties involved in the matter.”
Obama transition officials said on Saturday that Mr. Holder will follow department recusal guidelines if confirmed.
