Eric Holder just can’t help himself when it comes to stomping on liberty. His latest targets are climate-skeptic bloggers that received a link to the Climategate II e-mail file from an entity known as FOIA. While these bloggers are not accused of wrongdoing, they are being harassed because they received access to the e-mails and wrote articles about their findings.
The bloggers would not have known about the Department of Justice snoopers if their hosting site, WordPress.com, had not informed them. The Justice Department requested that the bloggers not be told.
The Department of Justice must be the protector of free speech. Instead they act more like the arbiter of what speech is allowed.
