He's not sure whether he's going to review the situation, whether he will investigate the IRS, or whether his arse is attached to his body or had any involvement in Fast 'n' Furious either.

Holder Isn't Sure How Often Reporters' Records Are Seized

by Mark Memmott

--From 'Morning Edition': Attorney Gen. Eric Holder talks with NPR's Carrie Johnson--

As his Justice Department faces bipartisan outrage for searching phone records of AP reporters and editors, Attorney Gen. Eric Holder says he is not sure how many times such information has been seized by government investigators in the four years he's led Justice.

During an interview with NPR's Carrie Johnson on Tuesday, Holder was asked how often his department has obtained such records of journalists' work.

"I'm not sure how many of those cases ... I have actually signed off on," Holder said. "I take them very seriously. I know that I have refused to sign a few [and] pushed a few back for modifications."

On Morning Edition, Carrie added that Holder declined to say whether there will be a review of the Justice Department's policy on searches of reporters' records.

Tuesday, NPR and other media organizations joined in a letter sent to Holder by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. In it, the news outlets ask that the Justice Department:

ó "Immediately return the telephone toll records obtained and destroy all copies, as requested by The Associated Press."

ó "Announce whether it has served any other pending news media-related subpoenas that have not yet been disclosed."

At a news conference Tuesday, Holder said the AP records were seized as part of an investigation into leaks about a CIA operation in Yemen that stopped an airliner bombing plot.

He will be asked about the search of the reporters' phone logs at a House Judiciary Committee Hearing Wednesday afternoon. Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., says "Congress and the American people expect answers and accountability."

Holder will also be questioned about the Justice Department's plan to investigate whether IRS personnel broke any laws when they gave extra scrutiny to some conservative groups' applications for tax exempt status.

Yeah. Security leaks of classified CIA missions shouldn't be investigated and prosecuted. I'm happy to see the right wing suddenly becoming the defender of civil liberties. It's about time.

"Former Attorneys General say Justice Department's AP Operation Highly Unusual"

FTA: "I donít think thereís any justifiable situation, ever, for a subpoena this broad without contacting the organization first," said Gregg Leslie, legal defense director of Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

Leslie said Nixon-era guidelines for the Attorney Generalís Office speak directly to subpoenaing phone records of news organizations. He called them a "well-established body of law."

"You have to try to first negotiate" with the news organization, Leslie said.

Rules published by the Justice Department require that subpoenas of records of news organizations must be personally approved by the attorney general, but it was not known if that happened in this case...."

****

Well...Holder's just "not sure"....

I said "Welcome to the club." I was welcoming you to the group, those you call leftists, that would put individual rights above law enforcements ability to investigate and prosecute crime. I'm not sure why that resulted in your hamhanded attempt at an insult.

Contrast your latest reply with your original post #3, ace.
Like every twice-used leftist piece of trash, you ride the wind.

Proof: You willingly subjugate individual rights to the government when it comes to Obamacare.

Nothing inconsistent in those posts at all. Try reading them aloud. It might help you.

You really should stick to offering opinions about the Bible. You don't understand the constitution.

Just as interesting as it is to see you people becoming positively Dick Cheney-esque.

And liberals like you can't understand the second amendment yet can find an amendment that gives one a right to abortions and other peoples money. I say you have the US Constitution confused with the Comminist manifesto.

All I did was point out how you wingnuts, who usually are all about prosecuting leaks and protecting national security interests suddenly aren't interested in that and are all about protecting civil liberties when you don't like the President.

You were in favor of prosecuting Dick Cheney and the boys for outing Valerie Plame, right?

Wasn't it Richard Armitage who copped to outing Plame? And why do you sh^tstain lovers insist upon comparing incompetent blacks to capable whites when changing the subject? Oh I know why, deep down inside you resent the more capable whites.
