GOP senators press Holder for special prosecutor into potential national security leaks:
GOP senators are putting the pressure on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special counsel to investigate whether the White House is responsible for national security leaks.
To me that is like putting the fox on guard duty in the hen house.
“The numerous national security leaks reportedly originating out of the executive branch in recent months have been stunning,” according to a copy of the letter to Holder, signed by more than 30 GOP senators and obtained by Fox News. “If there were ever a case requiring an outside special counsel with bipartisan acceptance and widespread public trust, this is it.”
Can this potential breach of national security be placed on the same plateau as “Nixon-Gate”? Hopefully, if a breach does exist it will be brought into the open and the weak links will be eliminated regardless of whom they are.
Optimistically Holder is not the person driving the team of Donkeys. The Congress needs someone that doesn’t have a zipper on their lips and is willing to answer questions when asked.
