Eric Holder Develops Sudden New Respect for Journalists Rights

Speaking of leaks and perjury and Eric Holder....The case involving Democrats who illegally recorded Mitch McConnell and leaked the tape to Mother Jones is now before the Justice Department. As you may remember, Curtis Morrison secretly recorded the strategy session, in violation of federal criminal eavesdropping laws, while working for Progress Kentucky, (a group with close ties to the Democratic Party both in the Bluegrass state and in Washington) and he admitted his guilt in a rambling 3000 word essay in Salon.

Shawn Reilly, the head of Progress Kentucky “met with White House officials on Dec. 5, just days before his began a messaging blitzkrieg against the Republican leader, according to White House visitors logs” if you can believe that!
I'm quite sure they didn't discuss how nice it would be if Kentucky managed to elect a democrat: "Will no one rid me of this turbulent Minority Leader?"
Politico reported this morning that “Justice Department prosecutors in Washington are now part of a high-profile criminal investigation into the secret taping at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign headquarters in Louisville… “

But you won't believe it. The Justice Dept. is hesitant to subpoena Curtis Morrison because well - the whole deal is a "potential headache" for Holder because of Morrison's status as a journalist.
Some pigs are more equal than other pigs, and it depends on whose pigs are getting gored by the ox.  Can I slip any more cliche's into a sentence?
