Attorney General Eric Holder was taken to a D.C.-area hospital Thursday morning after experiencing faintness and shortness of breath during a morning meeting, the Department of Justice said. He remained hospitalized for a few hours before being released Thursday afternoon.
DOJ spokesman Brian Fallon said Thursday morning that Holder was in good condition.
“During his regular morning meeting with senior staff, the Attorney General began experiencing symptoms including faintness and shortness of breath,” Fallon said.
He was discharged later in the day and sent home to rest, according to The Associated Press.
