Obama DOJ Fought to Keep Search of Rosen Emails Secret
When do the lies catch up with them?
Check it out:
Late on Friday, the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza reported that the Obama administration did not merely greenlight a search warrant on Fox News reporter James Rosen’s email account – it “fought” to prevent Rosen from learning about it. Ronald C. Machen, Jr., the US attorney prosecuting former State Department advisor and alleged leaker Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, asked a judge to prevent Rosen from learning about the search and seizure of his emails. Machen wrote that emails “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.”
Machen said that such secrecy should continue indefinitely, since “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.”
