    This poll is a trick poll, it's nothing more than a litmus test to identify political hacks who ignore the Constitution and the rule of law.

    And your point is ?

    How many judges did they (DOJ) have to go through before they found a judge that would sign off on the warrant ?

    What evidence was there that a crime was committed by the Fox News reporter? Has the DOJ filed criminal charges against the Fox News reporter ? It seems not because the Fox News reporter didn't commit any crime as the DOJ accused the reporter of to obtain a search warrant.

    The perjury charges against Eric Holder was that Holder swore under oath in front of Congress that he had no knowledge of the search warrant when it was discovered that Holder signed off on obtaining the search warrant. Eric Holder lied and committed perjury. Who's going to send Holder to prison ?

    Fox News or the AP didn't comit any crime, the crime that was committed was that someone with in the Obama White House and possibly Hillary Clinton's State Department released classified information to the media for Obama's own political gain to help him get reelected.

    As one high ranking member of the intelligence community said last week, he thinks the leaks came from high up in the Obama White House. Why not look there ? It seems like a no brainer.

    He specifically stated he was never involved in the subpoena of news media phone records but we now know that to be false.
    To be fair, my recollection is that Holder testified that he has never been involved in an attempt to have a journalist charged under the espionage statutes, not that he wasn't involved in the subpoena.

    The issue of perjury relates to that statement and the supporting documents that Holder signed to the court in order to get the Rosen warrant that stated that Rosen was suspected of being a party to an attempt to illegally leak classified information. Holder is now in the position of having either lied to congress or having submitted false representations to the court that granted him the Rosen subpoena - he can't have it both ways.

    It was a former intelligence advisor for the Obama White House. He was on one of the Sunday talking heads programs two Sunday's ago. The Drudge Report had a link to the story last week.

    Here is what Holder said:

    The panel is looking at a statement Holder made during a back-and-forth with Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) about whether the DOJ could prosecute reporters under the Espionage Act of 1917, an aide close to the matter told The Hill.

    In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material this is not something Ive ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy, Holder said during the hearing.

    However, NBC News reported the following week that Holder personally approved a search warrant that labeled Fox News chief Washington correspondent James Rosen a co-conspirator in a national security leaks case.

    He didn't go after Rosen for disclosure of material, he went after him for requesting it. So, what Holder said before the panel wasn't inconsistent to what he did with Rosen.

    If you believe that, you're probably still curious about what the "definition of is, is".
