This goes beyond the ridiculous and is an insult to the intelligence of everyone concerned with freedom of speech, press or our Department of “Justice.” Obama has asked AG Holder to investigate his own actions!
Jonathan Turley’s post today is a must read:
President Barack Obama recently came out to remind people that “Leaks related to national security can put people at risk.” He however denied knowledge of this and the other scandals.
