The Department of Justice is providing tougher oversight of the AP than it did of its own ATF during the Fast and Furious scandal.
Rand Paul’s filibuster over all the president’s drones was a huge hash tag hit on Twitter. While Senator Paul talked himself blue in the face (with the help of Ted Cruz, MikeLee, Marco Rubio and others), old guard red state Republicans dined with the president. They were not happy with the kids’ behavior while they were out.
Eric Holder’s Justice Department sued Standard and Poor’s for giving bad advice. That bad advice consisted of high ratings the company gave for mortgage backed securities leading to the 2008 meltdown.
Jack Lew, the president’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, worked for Citigroup’s subprime department during the time leading up to the 2008 meltdown. Lew was rewarded with a nearly million dollar bonus following Citigroup’s government bail-out.
In an effort to divert attention from Lew (okay I made that up), the White House released Justice Department documents justifying the killing U.S. citizens without judicial review. I didn’t make that up.
The justice department is 0-2 vs the Rocket and the Creep.
Meanwhile Attorney General Holder could be held in contempt for trying to stall a congressional investigation into the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal.
Update: President Obama has asserted executive privilege in the Fast and Furious case.
AG Eric Holder announced, that under certain conditions, it would be quite all right to kill American citizens overseas.
Conor Friedersdorf at The Atlantic picked up on this, but why do I think if Bush had said it the legacy media would have given it considerably more attention? True, the WSJ likes the policy. But where’s the outrage we heard concerning mere electronic spying on mere non-American citizens who happened to call or email Americans?
