We can only pray.
I wonder if Obama’s beleaguered attorney general wishes he would have followed Hillary Clinton and other departing members of the administration out the door earlier this year? Now, he may have no choice.
Attorney General Eric Holder may have lied in testimony given to Congress given earlier this month. Even if it was not under oath, the offense would be a felony subject to a maximum of five years in prison. The exchange actually happened with Hank Johnson (he of “imagine a world without balloons” and other greatest gaffe hits). This is what the memory-challenged AG had to say:
First of all you’ve got a long way to go to try to prosecute the press for publication of material. This has not fared well in American history… 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.You see, Eric Holder is the kind of guy who remembers with fine detail what he did do to cover his behind, but when it comes to the actual main components of the scandal at hand, he just don’t know.
Except, Holder’s fingerprints are all over the search warrant filed to go after Fox News reporter James Rosen as if he was a criminal. It bears Holder’s signature, you see. And not just one, but two judges said NO before one signed off on the warrant, and the DOJ wouldn’t have even notified Rosen after the investigation!
