Holder Says He Gets It

The president has given him a deadline – July 12 – to rein in investigations of the press over national security leaks. I know that because the details of the “off-the-record” meeting are all over the press today. Heh.

I think, especially after the James Rosen case, that the rules should lean much more heavily against any investigations into reporters’ records. But we’ll see.
