Think tonight the investigation continues into whether or not the nation's top law enforcement officer lied under old while testifying before members of congress.
Have a chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Bob good life.
Has sent a scathing letter to Eric Holder expressing -- great concern over the AG's recent testimony before page document calls for holder.
To answer a series of questions regarding his involvement in the Justice Department's probe.
A Fox News correspondent James Rosen.
I remember it was exactly two weeks ago when the attorney general explicitly denied having any knowledge of any efforts to secretly spy on reporters.
Now what you're about to see is the portion of holder's testimony that is now very much under the microscope of congressional investigators.
With regard to the potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material that is not something that.
I've ever been involved -- heard.
-- we think would be a wise policy.
I -- not only was he involved in spying on Fox News he clearly thought it was a wise policy because he Eric Holder he was a guy that signed the subpoena authorizing it.
And that means what you just witness was the United States attorney general lying while under oath before congress.
-- later tonight to members of the House Judiciary Committee who attended the hearing in question.
We'll join me live with the very latest on their investigation into this very serious matter -- first.
Earlier today white house Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about Eric -- misleading comments.
And let's just say well things got him that he did let's take a look.
We know he was involved in every case that's the question was he not only 2008 when he was involved it's -- -- don't want -- signed off on the floor.
Maybe give their content David -- -- that you're not at all that are -- are pretty good adjustment you guys are already start inflating.
You know that the subpoena -- prosecution.
And I think it is vision.
Question again I can't possibly do what the attorney general said.
He's in technical.
Accuracy you always.
I'm saying that based on what I've seen in public reports and what the attorney general's that I don't see the conflict.
I don't Jay Carney probably did not see the conflict the last time the attorney general rules also caught lying -- -- -- there -- now.
Do you remember this exchange between holder and house oversight committee chairman Darrell ice -- this is back in 2011.
When did you first know about the program.
Officially -- we've called fast and furious to the best your knowledge what date.
How -- sure the exact date but I probably heard about fast and furious for the first time over the last few weeks.
All right that -- was later discovered to -- a lie now why because.
Justice Department documents prove that -- -- was personally briefed about operation fast and furious as early as July 5 2010.
Now the question that remains is will the embattled attorney general be able to survive this latest scandal or is his time.
As America's top cop about to come to an end joining me now with reaction Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin and Fox's political analyst Juan Williams.
One when he said that this is not something I've ever been involved in -- of board everything would be a wise policy.
And then east side is a subpoena.
He didn't suns appear he's on an affidavit that was sent to a judge you signed the subpoena to -- -- let me guess today.
What went on I think -- at one point Uga got I got your point understood you but I I think the larger point is this.
That when Eric Holder was testifying he was testifying about prosecuting reporters for publishing information.
That was regarded as a national security leak.
And that's not he was not involved with that he was involved in and I think wrongly so let me just be clear.
Wrongly so in saying that yes James Rosen -- lifelong reporter -- legitimate news organization.
Could be considered.
Potentially a co conspirator went with the man who was breaking the law by its giving away this information -- a mistake if -- -- that's true any.
-- you're saying was not misleading congress which would be a violation of law then the only other option would be.
That he intended to prosecute.
Rosen and he did.
I had to say that would mean that he would have lied to the judge to get the sweeping search warrant.
Now now oh yeah he can you.
He he -- did Rosen as they co conspirator potentially someone who aided and abetted.
-- -- -- -- -- with the crime but that wouldn't but that's that's he did that so that he could try to determine whether or not Rosen who used the alias isn't the secret email accounts why I think -- that anything but that's I think what's going on here is that the prosecutors weren't a bubble.
And that's why they made this terrible mistake -- well I think it's beyond the terrible mistake I wanna get Michelle Malkin take on this.
Michelle of course of course it is it's chilling it's disturbing and of course is.
Eric Holder just -- there I think I am willing to pay for a chiropractor.
-- because of the water buckets that he is carrying four at the White House are very heavy.
I mean I can't even get worked up enough to have my blood pressure rise I can't be mad at you anymore one -- I just I feel I.
-- -- -- -- -- Look up -- -- tell you what disappoints me.
That anybody would be surprised.
At the outcome of this thoroughly -- -- to Justice Department.
Led by Eric Holder who we have known for decades.
Has a history of obstruction.
And history of politicizing.
The rule of law and subverting.
It equal treatment under the law and our constitution.
To his political -- we knew weeks during the nomination process I have always been livid.
That there were nineteen senate Republicans who ignored the long sordid history of corrupt autocracy that Eric Holder was responsible for when he was -- Clinton Justice Department official.
And Sharon has talked numerous times we.
We have who have been watching who have been doing our jobs as watchdogs can guess what.
You don't have to be a credentialed mainstream journalists to do journalists -- and whether it was the rich pardon whether what.
It was FA Al landed all of the sordid.
Conduct of this attorney general during the new Black Panther Party and the voting rights subversion case.
Through fast and furious and now -- Korea but -- channeling of of these.
Episodes in campaigns against James Rosen and the Associated Press let me answer -- -- possibly defendant wine house.
Michelle let me just say you have gone so far afield here it's -- -- -- you're building a conspiracy theory.
I think I you know I'm just gonna say gold -- I want to do you think that -- some -- more.
There is no fact here what.
What we saw from John was -- audio and why did.
Guy you lie to the congress and I think -- has -- point and I think John I don't think he did here's what.
But I'm just say to you I understand.
Given what you just said that this is about politics this is not about anything to do with Eric Holder violate any candidate -- has run out of talk about how political agenda.
I want political ideological demonization of holding on to gonna get older.
Let let me ask you this he went and testified before the House Judiciary Committee about fast and furious back in 2011 not that long ago.
And he said I just found out about it over the past few weeks then we found the documents that show that he knew -- at least ten months before the hearing.
-- -- -- was not telling the truth and that he had to go back after he was caught and say that he gave an accurate information.
Now while it.
-- -- it went all week all week came out -- came out -- was that there was some latter is something that was sent to him.
Pro forma that you know you could say obviously he's didn't you read it whatever okay so I don't -- documents say I'm sure someone yeah it's true.
But Eric Holder got a little ahead on the hard for many borrowers that may hold on it -- Michelle.
-- -- And the stench from the top of the heap of the White House and the Justice Department is so toxic.
That 16100 Pennsylvania Avenue and the Justice Department should be declared Superfund toxic cleanup site it's and the fact.
You can't smell it -- the indicates to me that you need an olfactory specialist because all of them.
-- smell it now.
Well I worry about your blood pressure at this point so calm down because I think if that was the scandal of that magnitude it -- be -- -- Why I -- -- -- -- -- things are getting pretty pretty tough right now for the attorney general amateurish survives and I think misleading congress is a big deal.
We're watching the days to come he was not promised on two occasions and is very clear that he misled the congress I think there's going to be a lot of ramifications out of -- thanks guys.
You're welcome and.
