Attorney General Eric Holder OK’d Search Warrant for Fox News reporter’s Private Emails … Obama Instructs Holder to Investigate Holder



And the scandals and lies keep coming from the Barack Obama administration. As reported at NBC, Attorney General Eric signed off on the search warrants to investigate FOX News James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator” in violations of the Espionage Act. But wasn’t it President Barack Obama who said that kind of thing didn’t happen in his administration and he was for a “Free Press”?  Barack Obama said, “Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs.” REALLY? How can Obama say he is against the targeting of journalists and have top ranking officials in his department doing just that? Obama claims there will be an investigation into these issues so that they never happen again. WHAT? As stated at Powerline, “Whenever he has addressed the issue, he has cited his own support for a media shield law as if that were somehow exculpatory.” The overreach of seizing media records from the AP and Fox News, of course this is only what we know of at this point, was done and approved by Obama’s DOJ. Let me guess, Obama didn’t know about this either. Is Obama the President? How come he can’t just say to individuals in his own administration to stop the nonsense? I thought Obama was supposed to be the smarted president ever? Guess not.

Attorney General Eric Holder signed off on a controversial search warrant that identified Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator” in violations of the Espionage Act and authorized seizure of his private emails, a law enforcement official told NBC News on Thursday.

The disclosure of the attorney general’s role came as President Barack Obama, in a major speech on his counterterrorism policy, said Holder had agreed to review Justice Department guidelines governing investigations that involve journalists.

“I am troubled by the possibility that leak investigations may chill the investigative journalism that holds government accountable,” Obama said. “Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs.”

The Gateway Pundit adds, Holder Lied to Congress On His Role in Investigating News Reporters. Watch the VIDEO. The Obama administration has no shame. They really believe that no one is going to hold them accountable for their actions. It’s up to you America, are you?

This is what Holder told Congress:

“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.“

But wait don’t worry, the Lonely Conservative opines“Oh, but not to worry. President Obama has instructed Holder to investigate himself, so I’m sure nothing like this will ever happen again.” Yes, sarcasm is included! At this point we might as well have an independent investigator looking at every aspect of the Chicago style politics of Barack Obama. Every thing they have done has been questionable, meant to intimidate and against the Constitution. What a joke the Obama administration has become and sadly. ultimately the joke is on “We the People” and the “US Constitution”.

Exactly how is Eric Holder not asked to resign?

All this as we head into Memorial Day where we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to fight against tyranny and uphold the United States if America and the US Constitution.

      Practically without exception, EVERYTHING Obama says is in
      response to something he and/or his Regime caused in the
      first place. He campaigns (in Orwelllian doublespeak) that
      there should be a cure for all these problems and that cure
      would be an overreaching bloated government. He is working
      as hard as he can impersonating the ‘good guy’ with his ‘right
      hand’ while doing the exact opposite with his ‘LEFT’ hand.

      Obama: IRS Targeting Conservative Groups Is “Outrageous” And “I Will Not Tolerate It”
      Posted on May 13, 2013

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, let me take the IRS situation first. I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday. And this is pretty straightforward.

      If, in fact, IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that had been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that’s outrageous and there’s no place for it. And they have to be held fully accountable, because the IRS as an independent agency requires absolute integrity, and people have to have confidence that they’re applying it in a non-partisan way — applying the laws in a non-partisan way.

      And you should feel that way regardless of party. I don’t care whether you’re a Democrat, independent or a Republican. At some point, there are going to be Republican administrations. At some point, there are going to be Democratic ones. Either way, you don’t want the IRS ever being perceived to be biased and anything less than neutral in terms of how they operate. So this is something that I think people are properly concerned about.

      The IG is conducting its investigation. And I am not going to comment on their specific findings prematurely, but I can tell you that if you’ve got the IRS operating in anything less than a neutral and non-partisan way, then that is outrageous, it is contrary to our traditions. And people have to be held accountable, and it’s got to be fixed. So we’ll wait and see what exactly all the details and the facts are. But I’ve got no patience with it. I will not tolerate it. And we will make sure that we find out exactly what happened on this.

      Great commentary SM!!

      Will heads roll when those within the administration are identified as being participants and/or possessing knowledge of the current scandals that are rocking the foundation of the Republic … rocking the foundation of a free society? Probably not UNLESS Progressives and Conservatives do more than rant.

      DOJ acknowledges Holder on board with warrant for Fox reporter’s emails
      Published May 24, 2013

      The “tailored” search warrant, though, was obtained only after federal officials accused Fox News correspondent James Rosen in an affidavit of being a likely criminal “co-conspirator” under a wartime law known as the Espionage Act.

      This accusation, along with the seizure of Rosen’s records, prompted complaints from media organizations. President Obama directly addressed these complaints for the first time on Thursday, announcing a review of DOJ policies on investigations that involve reporters.

      “I’ve raised these issues with the attorney general, who shares my concern,” Obama said, adding that Holder would report back by July 12.

      The acknowledgement, however, that Holder was involved in the search warrant decision raised additional questions about whether the attorney general’s review of his own actions would be impartial.

      We have a person sitting in the position of POTUS who cannot or will not obey or enforce the laws of the nation.

      When such a person is identified, the congress of the US should act to remove them. In this instance, it should be POTUS as well as AG.

      Perhaps Mr. Holder is spending all of his time ‘investigating
      himself’ instead of going to work and doing what we all pay
      him to do. Preoccupation with himself instead of serving We
      the People is the crux of the problem in the first place!
