    Must be nice to work in washington, when the burecracracy you head up starts engaging in criminal activities, all you have to do is recuse yourself from it, and wipe your hands clean. The obama admin is a bunch of professional thugs who have a deep understanding in covering their own ass.

    Eric Holder Removed Himself From Decision To Subpoena AP

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department says Attorney General Eric Holder removed himself from a decision to subpoena phone records of The Associated Press.

    A Justice Department statement Tuesday says that Holder stepped aside — a procedure known as recusal. The statement says Holder stepped aside because he had been interviewed in a government investigation into who provided information for an AP story that disclosed details of a CIA operation in Yemen.

    Holder has assigned Deputy Attorney General Jim Cole to handle the phone records case.

    The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The AP in what the news cooperative's top executive called a massive and unprecedented intrusion into how news organizations gather the news.

    Judge Napolitano was just going over the ways the DOJ could execute this wiretap and none of the ways they could have done it the way they did are within the law.

    Good thing when holder heard about it, he simply recused himself from it....
  4. Bang.
  5. That's not an excuse. If Holder found out, he should have busted it out and gotten rid of every one who was involved.

    For not doing his is an accessory to the fact.

    you can't recuse yourself from a criminal enterprise when you are the head of the enterprise.

    That fricken ridiculous logic.

    Recusal is when you take yourself out of the decision making process because you have a conflict.

    For instance Judge Kagan should have recused herself from hearing the cases she worked on prior to being a judge.
