Skip to comments.Eric Holder admits to spying on Congress
Posted on 06/07/2013 3:35:38 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Eric Holder was asked, in a meeting about the 2014 DOJ budget, if the DOJ was monitoring phones of members of Congress.
Holder refused to answer, saying that he'd be glad to answer in the appropriate forum. That clearly says that, in fact, the DOJ did monitor phones used by members of Congress. If such monitoring hadn't occurred, then Holder could have just said no.
The Senator who asked the question, Kirk (R-Il), said, "The correct answer would be to say, 'No, we stayed within our lane, and I am assuring you we did not spy on members of Congress.'"
In defense of Holder, if there is an ongoing investigation into a member of Congress due to evidence of treason, there might be justification. However, in that case, he could have replied that any monitoring of phones in the Capitol could be done only in certain cases and that members of Congress would be informed. Holder did not do that.

Maybe the reason Dems are upset is because of all their dirty laundry that could get in the hands of the Republicans
...and I would wager there are bugs in many of the chambers, offices, bathrooms, telephones (pick one) of Justices of the Supreme Court.
Scare tactic by holder.
Holder and Obama spy on everyone and everything, with the possible exception of violent radical muzzies. They were TOLD about the Tsarnaev’s by the Russians, but they were too busy sifting through yours and my telephone records (and tax returns) to be bothered with that nonsense.
Lessay you burned down a church full of worshippers.
Scary, huh? But suppose further that NOTHING HAPPENED TO YA —it was fully known and on TV.
Would that maybe be A LITTLE emboldening...?
The problems we now have with this INSECT started a VERY LONG TIME AGO.
It started at birth. Even BC is fraudulent !
Didn’t he say “we have no INTENTION” onspying on Congress and the Supreme Court!!! HELLO...of COURSE they are!!! They are EVIL,VILE,ANTI-AMERICAN DEMOCRATS!!
That would make too much sense.
OK, this shit just got real...!
Was Holder involved in Janet Reno’s BURNING AND KILLIMG 83 PEOPLE IN WACO TEXAS????????? MANY, MANY CHILDREN WEREN”T BURNT TO DEATH BY OUR GOVERNMENT!! WAS HOLDER INVOLVED??
As cover for Benghazi, this scandal was supposed to dove tail into the last one. They are using it to early as the NSA data grab has more legs.
Holder was #2 during Waco.
If the Congress does not Impeach Obama and Holder...they will be complicit in everything
Stop making excuses....grab the sack...and get those articles of impeachment drawn up
After impeachment and conviction, both should be waterboarded daily to find out who they really are and who “controls” them. What’s left of them should be deported.
OMG! I thought he came in on the hideous Elian Gonzalez case! I PRAY that Elian comes back to seek REVENGE on the satans that sent him back to Cuba and slavery to the state.....which is what is coming to AMerica SOONER than we ever believed it could come.
Where is the balance of power that once held tyranny at bay?
(cackle) The slope is getting slippier for Eric.
LAUGH BREAK Valerie Jarrett said yesterday “Eric Holder Will Be In His Position For Quite A While” b/c he has the full confidence of the president.
As Tea Partier Becky Dickerson (sp?) told Congress yesterday——the govt has forgotten its place.
Govt factotums like Valerie should remember she lives in a republic-—where govt is the “servant” of the people.
The MOST IMPORTANT THING is what the people think-—and if the people think Holder should go-—he will go.
Nobody gives a spit what Valerie Jarrett thinks.
“”Holder was #2 during Waco.””
Holder didn’t join the AG’s office until 4 years after WACO..I made the same mistake and then I checked it out. Whoops!
oh gee. just a month ago this could of been at first glance considered Semi Satire. Not anymore.
RE: Nobody gives a spit what Valerie Jarrett thinks
She has the (BIG) ear of Barack Obama.
There are and have been so many communists, sympathizers, marxists and jihadist defenders in Congress that I hope somebody was watching them.
However, Holder would only watch loyal Americans, not our internal enemies.
Who IS that guy???
...and Congress yawns
Obama is an EVIL,VILE,ANTI-AMERICAN Muslim terrorist
I’m glad he did, frankly — and that that realization has hit Congress. There’s nothing like your own ox getting gored to galvanize you into opposition. ‘Bout time Congress critters realized they are not immune to what’s happening in this regime.
I heard this on Mark Levin’s show last night. I can’t understand why this isn’t getting more play.
How can we trust the government in these matters when US Attorneys lying to judges to get a subpoena is acceptable the the Executive Branch?
As for the “Oh, this is very secure information, no one would dare abuse this” I call attention to Exhibit A, Bradley Manning, and Exhibit B, Wikileaks.
You’re right. While I’ve given up on the media, you would thinks some Republican Congressman would be pissed off at this.
The traitors to the US Constitution in the DO”J”
under the liar Holder use BOTH judge shopping
and non-Article III judges, some trained in Egypt,
as they did for Boston Terrorists to protect them
from the angry, bleeding American people.
