The following is a statement from David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, calling on Congress to investigate Wikileaks and the Obama Administration’s handling of the Wikileaks investigation. Bossie served as Chief Investigator of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee under Chairman Dan Burton in the late 1990s.
“If the lame duck Democrat Congress fails to act now, incoming-Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Congressman Darrell Issa, should launch an investigation into the Wikileaks case and the ineptness of the Obama-Holder Justice Department. The Obama-Holder Justice Department has fumbled the most damaging national security case ever in American history. With news out today that more damaging leaks will be released, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have been sitting on their hands for months.
“Why were President Obama and Eric Holder caught completely blindsided by what was leaked on Sunday? How did Julian Assange become essentially the biggest spy the world has ever seen under the nose of the Obama Administration? If Attorney General Eric Holder can shutdown websites offering counterfeit goods, why can’t he shutdown Wikileaks? Clearly, this investigation should be conducted in a bipartisan matter, and incoming Chairman Issa should use all his power to get to the bottom of the most damaging spy case in American history. Why this has not been a priority until now is a mystery to many Americans.”
