Pressing Matters

Holder is currently at the center of two scandals that critics say violate the freedom of the press. In the first, the DOJ secretly obtained the phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors as part of its investigation into a national security leak. It was later learned that Holder signed off on a search warrant seeking email and phone records of Fox News reporter James Rosen and his parents' phone records and monitoring his movements at the State Department.
