HOLDER HEARING: Holder Preempts Marc Rich Questions
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) just gave Eric Holder the chance to preempt the minority questions on Marc Rich, and I think this quote sums up what his talking points will be on the subject:
“I will be a better attorney general, having had the Marc Rich experience.”
Holder also said that he supports the Media Shield Law, the right of reporters to withhold the identity of their sources in most federal court cases. This is expected, as the Bush administration has opposed it, but it’s good to have him on record in support.
