How much difficulty.
Is he and with these do you think -- these allegations.
All but misleading congress.
I think this is a significant at least a political problem now you get into the -- -- there might be justification for a we've seen a lot of different.
Of what went on with Dave Justice Department.
Going after James Rosen and he's -- alleged source so but I do think if you look at his may fifteenth that statement to did you shake committee.
He says that he is not in favor of going after journalists and yet they're going after James Rosen is a co conspirator now.
So that it can this be justified as a way to.
Go after the source and -- there have been some legal experts saying.
The Rosen is not going to be a target but they had to get that information to emails to go after the source but we'll see we'll see if what happens with change whether he.
Is prosecuted -- whether the source is prosecuted but I think from a political standpoint.
-- has to bring clarity to this situation because.
Everyday Americans don't know legalese and certainly I think the White House has been a little bit put off.
By this that's why I think that present Obama ordered.
Eric Holder to come up with a thirty day review and also to meet with news organizations over the next month it means you think that the White House sees a book.
The problem of this.
-- -- I'm shore ahead aren't that there's not a lot of interesting stuff in the in the hill today also wanna get -- -- -- if we can -- Senator McCain.
Going off on this unannounced visit to -- I mean I think he was in the across the border from.
Turkey for not much more than a few minutes but this significant -- that I had somebody who has been hawkish on this area.
Goes into -- crosses that border to meet with some of the rebels what's the fallout likely to be up there on the hill.
I tell you John McCain's been around long time he knows everything in politics is timing and right after the -- Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
As reported out hasn't has -- helping.
-- the Syrian rebels Senator John McCain does this on a bipartisan basis is bipartisan support in the senate.
And the house on this and bush McCain is really.
Been pushing this for months to help the rebels he does this he meets with the rebels it -- -- -- international headlines and I think it does put more pressure.
On this White House to come up with more of a strategy though at the same point Jonathan -- -- you look at some polls and and and some American certainly wary of another international conflict.
And then it does seem.
That we -- some way yet.
-- -- -- much pressure senator McCain's visit builds with still some way yet from.
Physically giving it any weapons to the rebels even the European Union statement is much more about principle rather than practice -- again.
That's right I think -- in -- our way there and we still don't know we don't have any kind of not know much clarity on.
On the use of chemical weapons.
There's pending investigations on that so.
But we're moving in that direction congress is moving that direction and McCain senses that he's got momentum.
On his side and clearly they are trying to push this administration.
On this and you know other international issues like death.
More sanctions for Iran where the White House Atlanta let's do this diplomatically we don't want congress get involved what congress is get involved in both issues and.
