The House?! Partisan!!!! I say we put the nation’s top law enforcement officer on it instead. Have Eric Holder investigate whether Eric Holder lied under oath!!!
I love the way they are already redefining what he said:
Justice did not return a request for comment, but [Democrat Rep. Hank] Johnson on Tuesday defended Holder, arguing his statement was specific to Johnson’s line of questioning about the Espionage Act and not meant to pertain to other investigations.
“The attorney general’s statement that no journalists have been prosecuted under the Espionage Act during his tenure is accurate,” he told The Hill.
Um, that’s not what he said that is in controversy. This is:
In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material.This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.
He reviewed an affidavit that sought records because they might be relevant to the potential prosecution of James Rosen for aiding and abetting the disclosure of material by a government employee. He was involved in it, and he heard of it, and Hank Johnson is trying to pull the wool over people’s eyes.
