Holder not sure how many times hes seized press records
The Daily Caller ^ | 15 May 2013 | Vince Coglianese

Posted on 05/15/2013 9:08:48 AM PDT by mandaladon

Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that he isn’t sure how many times he’s seized reporters’ records.

“I’m not sure how many of those cases … I have actually signed off on,” Holder said in an interview with NPR’s Carrie Johnson. “I take them very seriously. I know that I have refused to sign a few [and] pushed a few back for modifications.”

Holder’s answer serves as confirmation that the Justice Department’s secret seizure of The Associated Press’s phone records is not an isolated incident.

Though the decision to subpoena information from media organizations normally falls to Holder, he insists that he recused himself from the AP case, leaving Deputy Attorney General James Cole to make the decision.

This maybe just the tip. AP was not the only news organization writing these stories. It will come out that other news outlets were also subject to this. This is why Holder says cannot remember how many records were seized.

He’s lying through his teeth. See? His mouth is moving. With a control freak like holder, nothing gets done without his say so, or the blessing of his master.

I had posed the question asking if AP was sure it had only been targeted for two months. The next question is obvious. Who else has been targeted? How deep is this iceberg?

Since Holder is an Obamadork selectee...he’s not sure of anything.

Because he hasn’t got a brain. (But he does have the requisite questionable background, quota achievements, and no morals.)

Problem is, there’s no wizard around to give the stupid idiot that darned brain - let alone any of the other things expected of a leader.

Take a wild guess, Holder.

No one is demanding 100% accuracy. Was it 2, 3, 10? or was it 2 or 3 hundred?

Or has it been SINCE YOU BOZO’S TOOK OFFICE?

I’d like to know if Holder will resign when little bastard barry resigns. I mean, Holder’s job to protect the liar-in-chief as prime capo will be ended at that time ...

“...he isn’t sure how many times he’s seized reporters’ records”

So he admits he has done it then

Ding, ding, ding - we have a thread winnah!

(On the lighter brighter side, reporters don't have to go to jail to protect their sources anymore - because Big Brother already knows who their 'sources' are..)

How does the man in charge recuse himself by handing it off to a subordinate that is accountable to him?

Imagine, Warren Buffet calls his secretary in his office (the one who pays more tax than him). He says to him/her, I would like a cup of coffee and while your at it could you decide if we purchase a controlling interest in that ABC company, I am recusing myself from the decision. Sure thing Mr. Buffet, just one thing? Do you want cream and sugar?

The people at Fox should probably have burner phones for personal use because they’re probably bugged and tracked 24/7.

Conservatives were Obama’s victims too, but unlike the press we were aware of it as it was happening.
