Leak Investigation by DOJ
Posted by madjillmom on June 9, 2012
The same DOJ that can’t seem to tell us what went on in Fast and Furious is now investigating the leaks that may have come from the White House. This is the same DOJ that didn’t pursue the New Black Panthers. This is the same DOJ that botched the Ted Stevens prosecution. This is the same DOJ that botched the John Edwards prosecution.
Late yesterday, the DOJ announce it has appointed an Obama appointee and a Bush appointee in the DOJ to investigate. They will not be special or independent prosecutors. They will work for Eric Holder. Eric Holder will be investigating the White House.
Actually, they won’t be investigating the White House. What they are is a quick attempt to distract a real investigation into the leaks. From here on out until the election, the few questions the press asks about the leaks will all be stalled because of an “ongoing investigation”. This investigation won’t really go anywhere, just like the internal investigation of Fast and Furious.
Also, why didn’t PresBO announce this at his mini-presser yesterday morning? Did he not know about it, or did things get too hot after the presser to cause this pathetic attempt at “investigation”to be trotted out late on Friday afternoon?
