    When the Justice Department began investigating possible leaks of classified information about North Korea in 2009, investigators did more than obtain telephone records of a working journalist suspected of receiving the secret material.

    They used security badge access records to track the reporter’s comings and goings from the State Department, according to a newly obtained court affidavit. They traced the timing of his calls with a State Department security adviser suspected of sharing the classified report. They obtained a search warrant for the reporter’s personal e-mails.

    The case of Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, the government adviser, and James Rosen, the chief Washington correspondent for Fox News, bears striking similarities to a sweeping leaks investigation disclosed last week in which federal investigators obtained records over two months of more than 20 telephone lines assigned to the Associated Press.

    At a time when President Obama’s administration is under renewed scrutiny for an unprecedented number of leak investigations, the Kim case provides a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one such probe.

    Court documents in the Kim case reveal how deeply investigators explored the private communications of a working journalist — and raise the question of how often journalists have been investigated as closely as Rosen was in 2010. The case also raises new concerns among critics of government secrecy about the possible stifling effect of these investigations on a critical element of press freedom: the exchange of information between reporters and their sources.

    “Search warrants like these have a severe chilling effect on the free flow of important information to the public,” said First Amendment lawyer Charles Tobin, who has represented the Associated Press, but not in the current case. “That’s a very dangerous road to go down.”

    I think he's gonna skate on all of them actually.

    IMO...the IRS "leak" was timed to take the heat off of him about Benghazi.

    Then yesterday you had his latest designated liar go on all the talk shows spinning all of this away and saying the Republicans owe Susan Rice an apology.

    The IRS leak was timed to head off the worst of it, but it's still gathering steam. The idea was to try and get ahead of it and claim that it was an isolated incident, but the truth traveled as fast as the spin, with the result that the administration came off looking blatantly dishonest. This is actually multiplying the effect of Benghazi, as well as the AP story, since all three of them involved suppressing information that might impact on Obama's reelection (the IRS suppressed dissenting viewpoints, Benghazi suppressed damaging information and the AP story imposed administration control on the release of news within the cycle). They are all bad news for Obama, although he will not see any Constitutional penalties for them, since he will not be impeached. Some of his subordinates might, however, especially if the house issues citations for perjury. Remember that Hillary lied under oath about the internet video, as did several other administration sources. Holder is probably looking at multiple contempt citations for his stonewalling, and Sebelius could end up going to jail for her fundraising activities. Those should be the targets.

    Thank you. SR and I have been discussing this at home. He thinks Obama will skate. I think that there is some justice in the world. Call me naive, but I think that you can only push things so far before there is a push-back. The Obama administration has become way too over confident.

    As an ex-English major, the Obama administration is the embodiment of the fatal consequences of ego. The "ego" comes before the fall, sort of the fatal flaw that leads to a tragic ending. Obama thinks that there is no reckoning, that he rises above the law. I'm hoping there are enough good men and women who will stand up and say "enough".

    Think of Lady Macbeth and her "out out damned spot" cries. Obama might just find that he can't erase the blood of those butchered in Benghazi. And Americans have always been distrustful of the IRS. Now his administration has given a basis for their fears, made them more tangible.

    The Tea Party had been damaged by the IRS policies and the constant scorn of the dems and the press. But now they seem to be emerging stronger than ever. They're getting perhaps too strident. Somehow I'm on their email list, and have been receiving way too many emails. At least I'm being kept current on all the latest Obama scandals, courtesy of the Tea Party.

    I'm hoping that this builds to a critical mass. We were at a subdivision picnic Saturday. I heard many people talking about politics, guys saying "I didn't vote for him". This is the first time when I've heard such discussions at the little get-togethers. Usually folks are more careful and avoid political topics.

    If they don't get Obama with an impeachment, they should take down some of his subordinates. His standing in history shouldn't be honorable. The word honor is besmirched by Obama. He doesn't have a clue to its meaning.

    This is getting worse:

    Fox News reports that three Fox staffers, two reporters and one producer, were targeted by Barack Obama's Justice Department. Fox doesn't have all the details yet on reporter William La Jeunesse and producer Mike Levine, but their emails showed up in a IG report regarding Fast and Furious. Either their emails were leaked by the Justice Department officials they were sent to, or the email accounts of both were subpoenaed and invaded by government investigators.

    Every Conservative talk show host...news paper writer and television broadcaster needs to file FOIA requests to find out if they were targeted too.

    My guess is this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as this Administrations "enemies list."

    Obama's impeachment is the last thing we want. It's emotionally satisfying to think that he finally "gets his," but in realpolitik, impeachment is a disaster for conservatives. Two possible outcomes:

    1.) He is both impeached and removed from office. This would be the first time in American history that this has actually happened (although chances were that Nixon would have been removed from office had it gotten that far). In reality, there is almost no way that this process starts and is completed before January 20 of next year. We get President Biden, and a truly energized far Left kook base, angry that the lord and savior has been taken down a notch, and they GOTV for Biden in droves. We're looking at a potential ten-year Biden Presidency. Ugh.

    2.) He is impeached and not removed from office. Then we would see what we have always seen in these matters: the "aggrieved" party gets a huge amount of sympathy and the President, weakened to complete irrelevance in the United States, suddenly has the sympathy of most of the people who see him as having been wrongfully accused, or else the accusations were over-blown. We still see this to this very day with Clinton. Twenty years after the fact, the Left and the "mushy middle" all think that Clinton was impeached over a blowjob and that it was the wrong thing to do, and he gained a lot more stature in the end because of it.



    The thing to do is to not impeach Obama, but just keep him completely irrelevant. No relevance, no ability to push any of his agenda any more, and the Democrats will have no coattails. They won't be able to fight back against even Captain Milquetoast, the Speaker of the House, on relatively pedestrian Congressional matters, most particularly spending. Obamacare can get de-funded and the Left will not have the bully pulpit from which to shout about it. We won't be able to completely un-do Obamacare so long as he's in office, but we can basically gut it to the point that it's a tenth of what it is even today, before full implementation. Then after Obama slinks out of the White House in disgrace, after the Democrats lose their ass in the mid-terms next year, we can finally eradicate that cancer from this country before it does any more damage.

    A hurt, weakened, impotent, lame-duck Obama is much, MUCH more preferable than an impeached and sympathetic one.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
