The Obama Administration has a whistleblower problem
Grassley had privately expressed his concerns to Holder about internal Justice talking points regarding the ATF whistleblower that were leaked to the press. Holder bristled when the senator asked him to name and shame the DOJ officials responsible for attempting to smear the former ATF agent.
“As you said, we had a ‘private conversation,’” he said. “In a different time in Washington, I’m not sure that what you just said would have been shared with everyone here.” Holder said leaks from the agency are being reviewed and he is “not in a position to comment on ongoing investigations.”
