    Eric Holder recused himself from AP phone subpoena issuance, and from investigation

    Eric Holder recused himself from AP phone subpoena issuance, and from investigation

    Eric Holder just ended a press conference.

    As previously reported by Fox News:

    Attorney General Eric Holder is recusing himself from the investigation into leaks made to The Associated Press, Fox News has learned.

    Also, as CNN reported, Holder previously had recused himself from consideration of issuance of the subpoenas:

    Attorney General Eric Holder recused himself from the decision to subpoena the phone records of Associated Press reporters, a source told CNN’s Jessica Yellin on Tuesday.

    The approval fell to Deputy Attorney General James Cole, the source said.

    White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday that the White House had no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department “to seek phone records of the Associated Press.”

    “President Biden.” Sounds good to me. He’s too stupid and this administration too tainted for him to do anything, so it’ll be like the old, good 1970s Saturday Night Live at the White House. Every day a new Biden laugher.

    I’d like someone to explain why the DOJ didn’t just subpoena its own employees phone and email records to find the leak, or those of whoever they suspect of giving the information to the AP. Wouldn’t that have been quicker and easier, and not gotten the press in an uproar?

    Kimmrz, the phone records announcement is probably designed more to intimidate reporters against reporting on Benghazi than to try to locate the source of that other report that happened “a long time ago”. Remember those phone records might also include calls some reporter made that might embarrass him personally if his wife found out. I am betting that is why this IRS issue has now been admitted openly, too. All intended to hide Benghazi. The truth must be really scary. Meanwhile, as someone else pointed out (can’t remember where), Amnesty for Illegal Aliens is marching quietly along toward a vote. 🙁
