    Jennifer Rubin discusses the "co-conspirator" search warrant and how Holder's role seems to be in conflict with what the President has just said: “I am troubled by the possibility that leak investigations may chill the investigative journalism that holds government accountable. Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs.”

    Is Obama now trying to distance himself from Holder?

    Rubin also notes that Holder may well be in real trouble himself, and she's dubious about his recusing himself and all his "I dunnos." I agree with her that whether he deliberately misled a judge in the affidavit is worth investigating all by itself.

    Holder must go

    People shouldn't be "forced to resign". If they **** up that bad, they should just get fired.

    Well, the standard save-face way is to volunteer one's resignation, which is "regrettably" accepted.

    I don't care what you call it, but he needs to go.

    I don't think that he should be forced to resign. Politics is about public image, and if Obama thinks that he can weather this with Holden still in his Cabinet, go for it. He's a lame duck anyway - what damage can it do? He already has enough legitimate strikes against him, and people that think he walks on water will not be swayed by this.

    If Holder himself becomes a subject of investigation, he won't be able to do his job as AG.

    Thanks for the link. And many of us would prefer that Holder not do his job as AG. His understanding of the position lacks a one to one correspondence with the actual duties and responsibilities. I have no idea how one recuses one's self without written documentation and directives supplied to staff. Without that, how would anyone know and how would recusal be accomplished? Are we expected to believe that Holder simply didn't read documents pertinent to these investigations that crossed his desk or that staff somehow knew he shouldn't see them? Who believes that?

    You're asking good questions.

    BTW, I never thought Holder was an appropriate choice for AG anyway, and the way he handled the Philly voter intimidation was exactly what I expected him to do. I did not expect him to stonewall Congress re the "Fast and Furious" e-mails the way he so brazenly did. I do wonder about a search warrant that describes Jim Rosen as a "co-conspirator." It's too much.

    It is. And the idea that Rosen was a flight risk? This guy is on television pretty regularly, I believe. And I see the Judge that signed off on this mess is scrambling to clear his ass. In my experience, such judges are approached for a reason, and it's not just because the person is available. The odor is overwhelming. I've always believed Holder would step over the line in a big way at some point. The only question in my mind was whether or not he would be caught. Now, he's stepped way over the line, and been caught. That's a huge liability to a president already compromised by Benghazi and the IRS, and who knows what else.
