Gasp! Eric Holder May Have Lied to Congress

Jay Carney April FirstMaybe. But what is a lie? No, but really.

Hot Air:

The Sunday talk shows spent considerable time focusing on the scandals at the Department of Justice, mainly on the question of what happens to Eric Holder.  Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, confirmed that the panel had begun investigating Holder’s remarks under oath on May 15th denying any knowledge that the DoJ had even considered “potential prosecution” of a reporter under the Espionage Act of 1917 when Holder himself signed a warrant application targeting Fox News’ James Rosen with that allegation included. Goodlatte cautioned that Holder should have an opportunity to respond to Judiciary’s initial request for an explanation before a full-scale investigation starts, but also warned Justice that their first attempted defense holds no water: [Video]

Mommy, I know five dollars is missing from your purse, and that you found five dollars in my room, and that I told you I didn’t steal it, but if you’ll just let me explain why that is technically not a lie…

There is a perfectly good explanation for why Democrats and Republicans disagree on what exactly constitutes a lie. Here is the Democrat’s version:

First is because… because… I know you are but what am I? And secondly, Jay Carney explained all this.

Republican version. Did Holder tell the truth? Uh, no, not really.
