Last Friday afternoon, AP General Counsel Laura Malone received a letter from the office of United States Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. advising that, at some unidentified time earlier this year, the Department obtained telephone toll records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to the AP and its journalists.
Does anyone find it strange that a DOJ Attorney wrote the AP to tell them they were spied on? Why would DOJ do that? Was there a letter from the AP to DOJ requesting this information? Something smells about this story.
story does not pass the smell test
