The New Yorker has a piece detailing the travesty, signed off by Holder himself, involving our most transparent and ethical government ever spy on a Fox News reporter, whom they accused of espionage, of all things because he, unlike the sycophants in the LSM that can’t line up quick enough to lick Obama’s balls clean for him, no matter where they have been, was investigating these fuckers, and they want none of that. So they then went in front of judges and made the incredulous case that the warrants needed to be kept secret so they could keep spying on the guy they accused of spying.
The Obama Administration fought to keep a search warrant for James Rosen’s private e-mail account secret, arguing to a federal judge that the government might need to monitor the account for a lengthy period of time.
The new details are revealed in a court filing detailing a back and forth between the Justice Department and the federal judges who oversaw the request to search a Gmail account belonging to Rosen, a reporter for Fox News. A 2009 article Rosen had written about North Korea sparked an investigation; Ronald C. Machen, Jr., the U.S. Attorney who is prosecuting Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a former State Department adviser who allegedly leaked classified information to Rosen, insisted that the reporter should not be notified of the search and seizure of his e-mails, even after a lengthy delay.
E-mails, Machen wrote, “are commonly used by subjects or targets of the criminal investigation at issue, and the e-mail evidence derived from those compelled disclosures frequently forms the core of the Government’s evidence supporting criminal charges.”
He argued that disclosure of the search warrant would preclude the government from monitoring the account, should such a step become necessary in the investigation. Machen added that “some investigations are continued for many years because, while the evidence is not yet sufficient to bring charges, it is sufficient to have identified criminal subjects and/or criminal activity serious enough to justify continuation of the investigation.”
Machen insisted the investigation would be compromised if Rosen was informed of the warrant, and also asked the court to order Google not to notify Rosen that the company had handed over Rosen’s e-mails to the government. Rosen, according to recent reports, did not learn that the government seized his e-mail records until it was reported in the Washington Post last week.
So Rosen’s crime was to point out how fucked up these idiots were, and for that they decided they would need to spy on him. I ask the question again: if a story like this had come out about the Boosh Admin’s DOJ spying on the media – and I remind you this Rosen case, so far, is not the only such story we know of, and I can’t wait to find out the details of what the Obamanauts did to Sharyl Attkisson, a Fast & Furious and Benghazi-gate reporter from CBS that didn’t tell the story the WH wanted – as part of a pattern that now clearly shows the agenda was to rig an election, do you think the LSM would be so blasé about it?
It was not conspiracy theories. These fuckers are and have done worst than practically every conspiracy theory I heard about them accused them of. But no way they will do to black Jesus what they would do to someone with an R next to their name if the people with the R next to their name abused power in this way. After all, as most of the leftard commenters point out: the end justifies the means, and the real enemy is anyone that doesn’t like the left’s vision and nanny state. I shouldn’t be gloating, but I have to again point out that I was right when I pointed out to the Boosh haters that any candidate from the left would do far worse and they would make excuses for that candidate simply because they were hypocritical leftist hacks.
