Holder appoints 2 prosecutors to lead leak probes WASHINGTON (AP) -- Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday appointed two U.S. attorneys to lead a pair of criminal investigations into possible unauthorized disclosures of classified information.

So he thinks he can go tromping through Congress at will? Stonewaller, meet the stone wall.
I don’t know about these two guys but sometimes
when you turn the dogs loose, they doen’t always
mind well. We’ll see, somewhere in this mess of
an administration there are some loose ends...
I am surprized that he didn’t appoint Moochelle and Biden to go down on this one. All I can say is George Bush please watch your back.
Holder: “Nope. Nothing here. We can close this case now!”
Oh, please. Go suck eggs, ErictheRed.
Maybe 100-year-old eggs in a dinner of Indian peppers in peppercorn sauce seasoned with cayenne?
emails and calls to Feinstein. she can get an independent investigator
Is it Malik Shabazz and Calypso Louie?
There is something fishy going on with the Demoncrats and these security leaks. All of a sudden the Demoncrats are calling for investigations and now Holder is appointing two special prosecutors. Either this is just a smokescreen to take the heat off Onumnuts and the economy or the Demoncrats have found something that they think they can link back to the Republicans.
How does this creep have the authority to do this especially when he should be in jail for his criminal activity
Yes, a joke!
This will lead nowhere. Time to appoint a real junk yard dog.
Holder Dispatches His Hand Picked Team To Plug Leaks
The House should immediately set up a committee to investigate the leaks. They have the power to do so.
It was an accident, or not officially classified info:)
Does this erase Holder’s perjury and obstruction of justice? I guess this move does, in his mind and Congress will probably fall for it.
This move plus WH rejected ealier an independent probe request only made them appear even more ‘guilty-er’ than possible. Remember, when cornered, Libs ALWAYS double down on stupid.
We should all call or write to our representatives. I don’t even feel guilty kicking these rabid dogs when they are down. (The Left never showed mercy for their opponents before.)
As angry as Diane Feinstein appeared today, I'd say they have a fat chance of congress saying...”sure you go ahead, investigate yourself!”
So Eric “Fast and Furious doesn’t refer to operation Fast and Furious” Holder is going to appoint two special counsels to investigate the leaks?
GAWD. Next we’ll here Eric say “the leaks referred to are not the leaks of information,,they are plumbing leaks at the WH”
Thanks BreezyDog, additional:
Perhaps Israel will feel that the US now can no longer defend her if Obama is giving away all the secrets.
Nothing to see here, move along. President Kardashian can continue his weekly appearances on “The View” without disruption.
Could be interesting...
Don’t you guys remember Ken Starr? Once they have their buddy in the special prosecutor position, he subpoenas the guilty parties, and then when Congress subpoenas them they will refuse to answer any questions because they “can’t comment on an ongoing investigation”. This will carry them past the election which is all they care about.
Gee, I wonder what the odds are that they find nothing wrong? sarc/
Don’t they do this every time they need to distract us (we the peasants) from their other (real) sordid affairs? It seems like this is a broken record... or “Groundhog Day”...
They will be sure to not be done before the election.
Hard to keep track of every thing President Mulligan is leaking, but did they not just leak that the US developed and deployed Stuxnet ? And now the Israelis are saying that was not true ?
The Over/Under for the duration of this investigation is hereby set at 3 weeks.
Yes, and O.J. is still looking for the real killer.
Holder is the joke, he’s an incompetent buffoon at the best, a twisted criminal with no respect for the law at the worst.
Either way, he needs to step the hell down from his position right now. Holder needs to understand something too. The source that has given information to Issa will be protected under whistleblower status. Holder is going to mess with that person or persons and give Issa total justification for locking that anti-gun libtard lying sack of crap up for a long time.
Our Government MUST go to great lengths in making good with the American people after F&F. We damned well better see some anti-gun laws repealed or else.
Beavis and Butthead?
I concur. I thought so the minute I heard Feinstein complaining.
Holder assigned Ronald Machen, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, and Rod Rosenstein, the U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland,
One from D.C. and one from Maryland. Wow! I’m sure they are staunch, Ronald Reagan-style Republicans.
Here is the AP link that does work
Holder might as well have appointed himself and that arrogant lazy, lying pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Yep. Beltway types who will never work again if they drop a dime on the kenyan and "his" White House.
Won’t the first stop in this investigation be The New York Times? Fat chance they will reveal their source. Investigation over.
this is a smokescreen. He is using the SP to make headlines against congress to deflect against his white wash of the executive branch. Payback for his getting abused by Issa.
Nothing will come from this until Romney is in office when it’ll look like political persecution.
I agree with you; they have lied so much and will throw ANYONE under the Choom Bus - no one is immune.
People in his ‘circles’ are beginning to wake up-some don’t wake up until they’re UNDER the bus, but they are all beginning to see someone they know get pushed into oncoming traffic shall we say-and they’ve had it....they could be next!
I think when you run anything-a home, a company, a business (even a Choom Bus Line)-anything- and it is built on lies, deceit, hubris, cunning, disloyalty, disrespect,and greed- AND driving the bus to progressive utopia, is a sociopathic narcissist on the down-low,- there isn’t enough time in the day for your “friends” and employees to cover up all of the lies, to explain what “he really meant to say when he mispoke”, to come up with a plausible story as to why he/the ONE-who-WON is driving the damn bus down a one/won way street and loving it, to have to clarify and explain his almost daily disrespect of patriotism and to defend the arrogance and pomposity of constant golf games, million dollar vacations and star-studded weekly gourmet get-togethers with “friends”-all while the rest of us budget every last penny just to be able to put $20 in the gas tank to get to work-(if we even have work to go to and no, that $20 doesn’t fill it, not even close)....But at least we are comforted by knowing that our taxes are helping to pay for all of his Air Force One jaunts to putting greens and campaign dinners and to make sure there are enough well paid Secret Service Agents at George Clooney’s place so the party can be enjoyed by all!
I think some of his “people” are tired of the lies and distortions and want out, but have signed a deal with the devil and are stuck; so the next deal they sign will probably be with Simon & Schuster or Random House- and not just for the money, but I think as payback for being lied to, as some were really expecting hope and change and thought he was “different”, but they found out he was and is nothing but a fraud.
So soon, the literary world will be ABLAZE with tell-all books about the most corrupt, inept, dictatorial and destructive administration this country has ever seen-and felt. I think some of these books will be the best political history books ever written; nothing will have to be invented or embellished to keep the reader interested -and besides-you cannot MAKE this stuff UP:
He is a son of White/Black/British heritage born in Kenya and Hawaii-
raised in Indonesia and at times Pakistan, with a Social Security number issued from the state of Connecticut, where he never lived or went to school-
he studied, graduated and “taught” at the Ivy-League level, with a passion for Saul Alinsky and Community Organizing-
he is a practicing Communist/Progressive-spending/Muslim on the down-low who snorted coke, loved his weed and only dated a “composite girlfriend”-
he now devotes all of his time to perfecting his golf game, playing hoops with “boys only” and texting on his Blackberry-
He became President of the most powerful country in the world by promising hope and change and “the most transparent administration this country has ever seen”-
He thinks the Muslim “call to prayer” is the most beautiful sound in the world (’I think you mean Christian prayer Mr President-right?’)
...and the above is only what WE know about him; imagine working in Utopia on the Hill everyday where he appoints czars and demands all that is American be destroyed and appoints more czars to flush it down the toilet?
There are so many stories here yet to be told and so many lies to be uncovered, that volumes will be able to be written about this disasterous pResidency for years to come...
From the article
Rosenstein was an associate independent counsel who worked for Whitewater prosecutor Ken Starr from 1995 to 1997. He was co-counsel in the fraud trial of Jim and Susan McDougal, the former real estate partners of Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton. Both of the McDougals were convicted in a trial that also resulted in the conviction of then-Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker.
Since the leaks are ordered by Obama himself, will he get immunity?
Call your representatives NOW and tell them NOOOO to the three stooges-like appointments of two of “their” prosecutors to the leaks probe. When you corner the rat, use the opportunity and kill it.
If that Obama has a zero leak policy why he waited days and days and only after both Democrats and Republicans became upset about the leaks that he himself finally decided he best show some outrage?
He does; he is counting on a large turnout from the black communities and enough Virgil Goode conservatives to reelect Obama. Virginia is a key state, if Obama wins Virginia again, Holder is untouchable.
Only if enough of us vote for Romney to take it back; otherwise it is his WH, and we can hope for more change to our republic.
