DOJ: Eric ‘I Know Nothing’ Holder vetted Rosen search warrant, did nothing illegal

Remember last week, when Eric Holder insisted under oath that he had not personally been aware of any efforts by the DOJ to target journalists? And remember how he was busted yesterday for signing off on the criminal investigation of Fox News’ James Rosen?

Guess what: it gets better. And by better, we mean much, much worse. According to a new Justice Department statement, Holder actually vetted the search warrant.


If this is true — and if there’s any real justice — Holder could be looking at perjury charges.

It doesn’t look like we’ll be able to count on the Department of Justice to do its job. According to the statement, this is all perfectly legal:

It’s long past time Holder’s luck ran out.



‘I don’t know’: What does Eric Holder know about AP and recusals? He knows nuthin’, baby, nuthin’!

Know-nothings: Holder echoes Obama; We totally find out stuff when we read it in newspaper

    If he’s is actually called on his lie he’ll just say he misspoke, like the lying little puss gut weasel he is.

    • Sean

      That worked well for Scooter Libby.

      • SDN

        Scooter was a Republican in front of a Copperhead jury.

    • freeinaz

      To see Holder spend some time in front of a judge, get convicted, and sentenced to prison would be a true blessing.

  • Steve

    Was he under oath? Or did he “forget” that?

  • ObamaFail

    Libs would be demanding that he be jailed immediately if he were Republican.

  • detroit19

    Color me surprised that Eric Holder found nothing wrong with what he did.

  • Rob Jones

    If congress did what they really should they’d post his head on a pike in front of the DOJ as a warning to future attorneys general.

    That might be considered harsh by some… so as an alternative I say we use the less direct approach and just make him Ambassador to Libya.

  • disqus_G8xi77DYlj

    Well this is the true test, if Holder is not removed and arrested for perjury, then this is all a dog and pony show. Obama told Holder to investigate Holder, haha. Obama told Holder to investigate the IRS, haha. John “Obamanoid” Boehner said he trusts Holder to investigate the IRS honestly, HAHA. ITS ALL SCRIPTED AND STAGED. These are communist tactics to intimidate and scare the press into submission, to make sure no leakers and whistle blowers ever come forward again and sources will never share info again, this is PURE NAZI BS. The IRS issue is to rile up conservatives and Tea Party followers, to draw them out into the open, then the false flags begin and will be blamed on them.

    Nothing will happen to this Teflon coated sack of excrement.

  • Wendy Holt-Stone

    Sorry, I’m a bit confused. What do you mean by “vetting?” That Holder actually reviewed the warrant as opposed to just signing off?

    • TocksNedlog

      Bingo. But remember, he didn’t know anything about the targeting of reporters.

      • TexasMom2012

        Remember the past White House statements that Fox is not a “real” news organization and their attempt to exclude them from the White House press pool? Could be Holder’s defense. Rosen is not a “real” reporter because he works for Fox so not entitled to first amendment protections.

    I vetted my tax returns and found that I did not need to pay last year! Excuse me I’ll be right back there is someone at the door.

    The scariest part off all the scandals popping up is we haven’t seen even the tip of this corruption-encrusted iceberg.

  • dennylee60

    If Holder lied under oath, then what? Who is going to persecute him?

    I don’t read the leftist media or blogs, so I’m asking this question with all sincerity.

    What are leftists doing these days as all this news comes out? Other than smoking pot and spreading disease, I mean. Are they even aware that this is happening?

      They are sort of laughing at the fringe have a heart attack

    Nothing but a long perp walk, trial,conviction and lengthy prison sentence for this corrupt top cop or there is no justice left in this nation.

  • Bill Board

    Add another FIVE years to Holder’s prison sentence for lying to Congress.

    On one hand, I am titillated by the idea of a man who defies the law because such a man would be magical, like a unicorn!

    On the other hand, I am anguished by such an idea because such a man can hurt me very much!

    I’m not a history buff so I don’t know how this turns out.

    What does history teach us? Will the story end magically, beyond our wildest dreams?

    Or will the bohemians savage us an burn our bodies as fuel for their pagan earth rituals?

    Such a fine line! I can’t decide! History buffs, please weigh in! How does the story end with such strong and confident men in charge who are stronger than the law itself!?

        • CatHerder

          I am a bloody-minded savage, born of the remains of a peaceful man whose last desire was to see his grandchildren grow up strong, proud and secure. Now I must live long enough to teach them distrust of the very government which should have been the guarantor of such. I weep for the innocence they will not be able to afford. God’s curse on those who wrought this.

    • Jay Stevens

      I see one of two alternatives:
      “1984”, or
      Bastille Day.

      • TexasMom2012

        With today’s technology I think 1984 is chillingly possible.

  • Wiki David

    Does this add years to Holdon’s sentence when contempt of Congress if factored in? Just asking

  • Mark James

    He’ll get away with it. Because investigative journalism has been put on hold while a democrat is in office, they can do anything they want. They are accountable to no one.

    Mr. Holder will admit that what he said was true about not persecuting reporters. Then when asked about Fox news reporter he will shrug his shoulders and say, “But he’s not a real reporter and Fox isn’t a real news station, so what I said before was true.” That’s the arrogance of this administration.

    This is so while Obama is sneaking in his agenda there will be NO LEAKS and one day we will wake up and ask what happen. Lets not forget Valerie Jarrett

    “Yessir! Izza dont’s knows me nutthin bout no’s wurrants on nobodys!”

    Look at this clown and say with a straight face and a clear conscience that you trust him as the chief lawyer of this country. He is as shifty-looking as they come. This prevaricator belongs behind bars.

  • Raye09

    Well that settles it, I don’t believe a damn thing coming out of the DOJ, none of it. It’s lies all lies!

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Shocking! Holder’s justice department concludes that their boss did nothing wrong. He keeps his job. They keep theirs. Nice.

    And people wonder why no one has any respect for this ass-clown posse called the Obama Administration. Just a bunch of liars, cheats, obfuscaters, and prevaricators. Conmen all.
