After garnering considerable criticism for its response to the Gulf oil disaster, the Obama administration is moving away from BP and has sent Attorney General Eric Holder down to the region to meet with prosecutors. The move signals that the administration may open a criminal investigation on one of the worst environmental disasters the nation has seen. According to Holder, lawyers are investigating any possible "malfeasance" on BP's part and that investigators have requested that BP preserve internal documents related to the spill. Holder's trip will also focus on holding the energy giant accountable. BP spokesman Andrew Gowers said, "We're cooperating fully with all inquiries, and we're doing everything we need to do and more in terms of preserving records."
