GOP leaders skeptical about US attorneys' freedom in leaks probe

So what's gonna happen when the investigators are lead right straight to the white house and to obama himself? Do you think these leaks are an accident? Or some rouge in the administration? It's neither. This shit is coming directly from obama himself. He is trying to inflate his already oversized ego by going public with things that should be kept on the down low, at least for a while.

Just like the killing of that scumbag, bin laden. Don't you think it would have been the smarter move to analyze the data found in his home before telling the entire planet what just went down? There is no telling how much intelligence that could have yielded. And that fucking moron biden, telling exactly which unit made the raid. What a dipshit. Do you really think the Navy SEALS are in this shit for fame and glory? I can guarantee you they are not. They aren't like biden and obama, they are above that. They do what the do because they are True American Patriots.

These leaks are coming from the white house, everybody knows it. Nobody wants to admit it. And holder won't let it go that far, count on it. They will find some lowly sacrificial lamb to take the rap and obama will come out of this unscathed, again. It's bullshit and the republicans know it...

From FoxNews

Attorney General eric holder's announcement that two U.S. attorneys have been assigned to lead a criminal investigation into possible, unauthorized leaks of classified information is being met with skepticism by GOP lawmakers questioning whether the attorneys will be able to act independently of the Obama administration.

"I have no doubt that these U.S. attorneys are excellent prosecutors," GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss, vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said. "However, they would still be operating under the obama administration's Department of Justice. The better solution is to appoint an outside counsel to impartially investigate what will likely lead to a White House inquiry."

holder said late Friday he had assigned the investigation to Ronald C. Machen Jr., a U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, and Rod J. Rosenstein, a U.S. attorney for Maryland.

"These two highly-respected and experienced prosecutors will be directing separate investigations currently being conducted by the FBI," holder said. "I have every confidence in their abilities to doggedly follow the facts and the evidence in the pursuit of justice wherever it leads."

The announcement follows a bipartisan call from Capitol Hill for an investigation and a special prosecutor to look into suspect national security leaks -- which congressional lawmakers say is needed because the disclosures have put Americans world-wide at risk and perhaps came from the administration.

holder said Machen and Rosenstein are "fully authorized" to prosecute criminal violations and talk with U.S. intelligence officials and that their investigations can reach into Congress and the administration.

Still, congressional Republicans expressed uncertainty.

"The Attorney General is so politicized in his office," Texas GOP Rep. Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News on Saturday. "I just hope these U.S. attorneys will be totally independent and go where the trail leads them."
