On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said that before he leaves office, he will share the results of the Justice Department's civil rights investigation into the death of Michael Brown and a probe of the Ferguson Police Department's patterns and practices.

At the National Press Club, Holder said he is "confident" that he will have decisions for both before nominee Loretta Lynch is confirmed by the Senate, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, and a vote could come sometime within the next few days. "I think everybody will see when we announce our results that the process that we have engaged in is, as I said back at the time when I went to Ferguson, independent, thorough, and based on all the facts," he said. "And I am confident that people will be satisfied with the results that will be announced."
