Mr. Holder, I have a couple of simple questions. Regarding the seizures of the AP telephone conversations you said the following: "I'm confident that the people who are involved in this investigation ... followed all of the appropriate Justice Department regulations and did things according to DOJ rules." I would imagine those words are true. You do have a tendency to make up your own rules. My question is this: Did that action violate the First Amendment of our county's constitution? OK How about the fourth amendment? You know that set of laws that has governed our nation so well since its inception?
My second question is even simpler: Do you care?
Holder, speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, said the unauthorized information put the American people at risk and required "very aggressive action." (So THAT is the reason you violated the law of the land.)
He said he did not have specific knowledge about the formulation of the subpoena for AP telephone records, but he said he does not believe there was any wrongdoing.
I notice that he now believes that the fourth amendment does not apply in most cases. You don't need a warrant just a "subpoena".) I guess the fifth amendment is not to be considered any more either.
What a country we have allowed ourselves to become.
No wonder there is so much talk of civil war against this administration.
