House Mulling Perjury Charge Against AG Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee on May 15 that he didn’t know about the Justice Department’s investigation of Fox News’ James Rosen.  When pushed by a Democrat to relate the DOJ’s behavior to the 1917 Espionage Act, Holder said:

“In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material — this is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.”

Well, it turns out that Holder not only knew of the investigation into Rosen, but NBC reported last week that Holder actually approved the warrants!

If true, that’s perjury and the House is apparently looking into the charge.  The House has already voted Holder in contempt on the “Fast and Furious” scandal, so a perjury charge is not at all out of the question.

Holder and Obama are correct to be upset about the leaking, but their ire should be at the leakers, not the press.  When the New York Times outed an incredibly important and useful program by the Bush Administration to monitor terror suspect’s bank accounts, they spilled the beans without remorse even though the Bush Administration asked them not to run the story.  But as we already know, despite its faults the Bush Administration was considerably more mature, organized, and apparently less insidious than the Obama Nation.
