Historians may look back at this point in the Obama administration and ask the question: When did the lines cross?
It is no surprise that America has lost faith in its chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.
If not for Fast and Furious, the Benghazi disaster, the politicization of the IRS, the Associated Press and James Rosen hassling, and secret data collection by the self-described most open and transparent administration in history ("Scandalmania," Commentary, June 11), I do believe I'd be at peace with the universe.
It's apparent to me that most people in their 20s and 30s have little concern about what is going on in their own country.
President Obama has learned nothing and forgotten nothing. In elevating truth-challenged U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice to the government's premier national security position, Mr. Obama effectively flashed an upturned middle finger toward his critics as if to say, "I'm large and in charge. If you have a problem with her, then come and get me."
When examining the scandal surrounding the Justice Department attack on reporter James Rosen and Fox News, one question that should not be left out of the congressional inquiry is, Where was the judge?
The CIA’s inspector general has concluded that agency officials did not always follow rules for safeguarding sensitive information when they briefed Hollywood producers making a movie about the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden, according to a lawmaker who was briefed on the watchdog’s findings.
The trifecta of scandals bedeviling the Obama White House shares a common theme: high-level government officials put their signatures on a document and later disavow accountability for its contents. Call it government by rubber stamp.
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee say the Justice Department's defense of Eric Holder is inadequate and it dodges a real question behind the agency scandal: What role did the nation's leading law enforcer play in the agency's surveillance and records seizure of members of the media?
As a longtime, ink-stained wretch, I'm actually glad that some of the Obama administration's bombs targeting our essential liberties found their way out of the Tea Party kill zone and were dropped instead on the Fourth Estate.
House Republicans confirmed Sunday they are investigating Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. for perjury, while Sen. John McCain suggested he consider resigning in the wake of accusations that he lied to Congress about the probe of a journalist.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has disgraced his office and engaged in a systematic abuse of power. He has also lied under oath. He can no longer remain as our nation's chief law enforcement office.
The Associated Press, the New York Times and CNN have turned their backs on one of President Obama's top Cabinet officials.
No administration official should ever hold the threat of jail time over the heads of reporters who are doing their job responsibly.
The Justice Department won't do to other media outlets what it did to The Associated Press or to Fox News correspondent James Rosen, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday.
"We believe — and we hope you will agree — it is imperative that the committee, the Congress, and the American people be provided a full and accurate account of your involvement in and approval of these search warrants," he wrote, adding that he wants answers to his questions by Wednesday.
