If everyone knew about this already and it’s been going on such a long time why would they be doing this? The cat has been let out of the bag and it’s payback time.

They should start with some broad-based subpoenas for journalist phone records for all reporters in his organization. Follow that with collecting all of his email and email for all of his contacts and Facebook friends.

Apparently, Obama has persecuted more whistle-blowers than ALL US Presidents combined.

I am the judge, the jury, and the executioner.

Mark Twain, in his autobiography released in 2011, spoke about his little brother beaning him in the head with a rock which caused such a bump to rise “that I had to wear two hats for a while!”

I wear three hats in the New Patriot’s Court.

WOW! The DOJ can act quickly after all!

Interesting scenario, though. The gov’t spies on us by capturing our emails and phone call information, yet the bad guy is the one who lets us know we’re being spied on.

This is America?

What kind of search warrant authorizes a dragnet? I thought search warrants, according to the constitution had to be very specific.

First Obama’s goons came for Tea Party Members,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t in a Tea Party.

Then they came for Conservatives,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Conservative.

Then they came for traditional Christians and Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t either.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

Thanks for the ping.

But of course. These "leakers" are keeping dear leader from completing his agenda.

Did I mention Valerie Jarrett?

The whole purpose of this is to deter whistleblowers and others who might leak future stories damaging to the administration. A form of political damage control.

Maybe the leakers are the same people who leaked the East Anglia emails, which effectively ended the “global warming” / “climate change” scam. What I mean is, maybe there are real patriots embedded in the government who are as distressed as the rest of us by the efforts of the African communist and his party to destroy America.

Holder needs to go after all Reuters reporters anywhere in the world. One never knows where this conspiracy to harm Dear Leader was hatched. Dear Leader must know so he can destroy this upstart. Get a FISA judge to issue a blanket subpoena for all Reuters’ reporters emails, phone logs, snail mails, and other communications. Subpoena their families’ records. Get these traitors to Dear Leader and his Party of the One under indictment, tried, and imprisoned immediately, Eric.

Last time I checked it was illegal to give Top Secret documents to reporters.

Here's an essay topic - explain why Bradley Manning is a traitor that should be executed and the NSA leaker is a hero. Bonus points if you can do it without mentioning Manning is a "faggot."

There is no need for an investigation. It was payback for blaming the spooks for the Benghazi talking points lie.

They start digging. And more dirt is gonna leak out showing even worse info. on the Criminal enterprise in the White House!

They messed with the wrong folks

A march on NBCCBSABCCNMSNBC would be interesting.

People willing to march on PBS or cable, complete with those would be willing to bring cable boxes and pile them up at the door, would be a site to see.

Years ago, truckers drove to DC, especially from Eureka, CA, with a giant redwood peanut on a flatbed. For Carter, who refused delivery of said peanut.

Europeans do stuff like using semis to block freeway exits. That gets people’s attention.

You’re the one who mentioned he’s a “faggot”. Bonus points for you if you can manage to stay on point and not stray into personal attacks like a friggin liberal.
