Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Tuesday defended the Justice Department's use of its subpoena power to monitor the telephone records of editors and reporters at The Associated Press in a leak investigation, but said he was unaware of the details because he had recused himself from the leak case.
"This is an enormous opportunity to set a tone and to empower hundreds of thousands of federal employees to do the right thing," said Lucy Dalglish, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, who characterized it as a "180-degree turn" from the Bush administration.
"No administration that values the free flow of information to the public would use this tactic. And I think the public and Congress will probably conclude the Justice Department has overplayed its hand. Notice is only required for phone records. It is highly likely they also have credit card receipts, airplane records and other digital information about all of these journalists. I've never been more disturbed about a government subpoena," she said.
