“Holder’s Misguided Oil Spill Probe”
Audrey Hudson has the top story today at Human Events:
President Barack Obama says it’s his responsibility to make sure the massive oil spill creeping across the Gulf of Mexico is plugged and the shoreline and pelicans coated in the black goo are scrubbed clean, but a premature criminal investigation by his attorney general threatens to interfere with the cleanup.
Atty. Gen. Eric Holder launched his inquiry into criminal charges against BP, but the ongoing spill is far from being under control and officials are still trying to determine what caused the catastrophe.
“This is not the time to be focusing on a criminal investigation, and I have to believe that is part of the effort of the Obama Administration to look like they are doing something,” said Jack Coleman, a senior attorney and advisor at the Interior Department from 1989 through 2003 under both Presidents Bush and President Clinton.
