Eric Holder to be Investigated on Perjury Charges

Karl Rove told Greta Van Susteren tonight that Eric Holder lied under oath to Congress when he told Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) that targeting journalists was bad policy and something he'd never been involved in.

The AP investigation demonstrates the urgent necessity to modernize laws that have been outpaced by technology and the ease of collecting massive amounts information about Americans. We need to modernize the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 by requiring a warrant for surveillance involving communications, phone records, and movements. We need to update the Espionage Act of 1917 to limit prosecutions to cases involving real harms to our national security.
