Political analysis Brit Hume and Fox contributor Juan Williams sparred on Sunday when Williams pointed out that the investigation of journalist leaks was the GOP’s idea. Right Wing media outlet The Blaze characterizes this exchange a little differently that we do with their explosive headline, “Brit Hume rips Juan Williams’ excuses for Obama, Holder.” Really? Hume “rips” Williams?
The conversation started with Williams pointing out that Republicans wanted the leaks to be investigated to begin with, saying,
Republicans have been hammering Eric Holder–to go after the leaks, that they have wanted him to pursue leaks that had to do with how bin Laden was killed to secret prisons to the attack on the cyber network in Iran. That came from Republicans. And it has been something that the Bush administration started and it has been continued with a vengeance, to everyone’s surprise, by this administration.
Williams went on to explain,
Eric Holder did not conduct the probe that led people to somehow come to the madhouse conclusion that James Rosen is somehow a co-conspirator, is somehow to be suspected. He signed the affidavit as attorney general of the United States, he did not conduct the probe.
