Posted on 08/02/2012 11:00:16 AM PDT by Nachum
Republican Sens. John McCain (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) blasted the Justice Department on Wednesday, accusing it of not properly investigating national security leaks they say originated in the White House.
The GOP lawmakers charged that the DOJ probe had wasted time and resources focusing on lower-level government employees instead of those at senior levels of the administration.
Having conducted a few high-profile investigations myself ... I am frankly puzzled that the Justice Department would start these investigations by interviewing the total universe of officials who had access to the leaked information when the articles and books that publicized the leaked information specifically cited scores of closed, high-level meetings attended by a relatively small number of senior officials, McCain said on the floor Wednesday.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Barry O’Bummer is the Leaker-in-Chief and Holder is the most lawless AG in US history - which is saying something.
Feebles McCain and Pantywaist Graham, the two sharpest schticks in the deck...
” IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS? STILL WAITING.. “
I will wake you up, when you nod off : )
McCain & Graham.....elucidating the obvious......
Seems a repeating theme.
Then why don’t these pansies assign their own investigator instead of waiting for the fox to count the chickens?
I would think that Sen. McCain would be shocked, embarrassed, and humiliated, since he assured us that we had nothing to fear from a President Obama back during his concession campaign in 2008.
I would think he would announce that he would be doing the honorable thing and resigning, seeing as how he mislead the American people and refused to make a sincere effort to win, having convinced himself that his opponent was the better candidate. This after pulling out all the stops and fighting like a tiger to defeat better-qualified Republicans who also wanted the job.
Like the JUST-US Dept. would really investigate these DANGEROUS leaks!! Holder is more corrupt thn Reno was.....and Reno KILLED INNOCENT men, women and children.
McCain has, for many years, preferred to live in a fantasy world.
In his latest dream sequence, he apparently believes that a corrupt character such as Obama, and his even more corrupt Attorney General, Holder, with throw their own to the wolves.
I think McCain and other feel it's ONLY necessary to feign that your concerned.
As for the actual"follow through", in doing something to punish and RECTIFY, they have little or NO time for that.
