Whew! Yeah, so maybe sources within the Obama Administration have leaked classified information. But our illustrious Attorney General, who just yesterday oh-so-deftly (*cough*) navigated his way through a House Judiciary Committee hearing and has never once suggested that he’s full of it, has got this all under control.
He takes this all very seriously or whatever:
Holder: "Unauthorized disclosure of classified information can compromise the security of this country and all Americans."

Holder will be appointing two U.S. Attorneys to oversee the investigation.
The attorney general said Ronald Machen, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, and Rod Rosenstein, the U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland, will direct separate probes that are currently being conducted by the FBI.
“These two highly respected and experienced prosecutors will be directing separate investigations,” Holder said in a statement. “I have every confidence in their abilities to doggedly follow the facts and the evidence in pursuit of justice wherever it leads.”
What could possibly go wrong?
OMG! Holder is going to clamp down on White House leaks & investigate! Kinda like @darellissa saying "ok you can have till july 4th" #doh

Eric Holder appointing anyone to investigate Obama's White House would be like appointing Margret Sanger to investigate Planned Parenthood

Feeling good about Holder leading the charge on the WH leak investigation. Which Iranian spies will he assign to it?

See? Nothing to worry about. It’s only national security, after all. We’re just lucky we’re in Eric Holder’s capable hands.
