(CNN)-- The Justice Department secretly collected two months of telephone records for reporters and editors at The Associated Press. Federal agents collected records from more than 20 lines including personal phones and AP phone numbers in New York; Hartford, Connecticut; and Washington.<quoted text>
Oh, you just jump all over the place don't you. If you are proven wrong one issue, you dust yourself off and change the subject. Entertaining to say the least.
Now, Eric holder was not "caught red-handed confiscating personal emails and phone calls from members of the press." It was the Justice Department that sent a letter notifying AP that its phone records had been obtained though subpoenas.
Those calls were legally obtained and part of a criminal investigation into who may have leaked "unauthorized and dangerous disclosure of classified information" contained in a May 7, 2012, AP story about a foiled terror plot.
"The Obama administration has aggressively investigated disclosures of classified information to the media and has brought six cases against people suspected of leaking classified information, more than under all previous presidents combined." I would call that a great job.
Got any other lies you'd like debunked?
Harry Reid said "I have trouble defending what the Justice Department did." He went on to say, "There's no way to justify this."
Under the Obama administration, six government officials have been indicted in leak-related cases, twice as many as in all other administrations combined.
No, there IS no way to justify this.
