No, he didn’t.
Via Daily Caller:
White House press secretary Jay Carney insisted Wednesday that Attorney General Eric Holder “testified truthfully” in a May 15 hearing.
Holder told the House committee that “with regard to potential prosecution of the press for disclosure of material, that is not something that I have ever been involved in, heard off, or would think would be a wise policy.”
But a few days later, news reports showed that Holder personally sought surveillance of a Fox News reporter under the grounds that he had possibly broken the law. Two judges rejected the requested, but a third approved the surveillance.
That statement prompted members of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to announce an investigation of Holder’s apparent denial of a personal role in the investigation.
