Governor Sarah Palin takes to Facebook to ask President Obama why no apology and resignation have come from Attorney General Eric Holder:
Where is the apology and resignation of your attorney general, Mr. President?
Governor Palin included the link to this letter from Fox News chief Roger Ailes to his employees:
The recent news about the FBI’s seizure of the phone and email records of Fox News employees, including James Rosen, calls into question whether the federal government is meeting its constitutional obligation to preserve and protect a free press in the United States. We reject the government’s efforts to criminalize the pursuit of investigative journalism and falsely characterize a Fox News reporter to a Federal judge as a “co-conspirator” in a crime. I know how concerned you are because so many of you have asked me: why should the government make me afraid to use a work phone or email account to gather news or even call a friend or family member? Well, they shouldn’t have done it. The administration’s attempt to intimidate Fox News and its employees will not succeed and their excuses will stand neither the test of law, the test of decency, nor the test of time. We will not allow a climate of press intimidation, unseen since the McCarthy era, to frighten any of us away from the truth.
I am proud of your tireless effort to report the news over the last 17 years. I stand with you, I support you and I thank you for your reporting with courageous optimism. Too many Americans fought and died to protect our unique American right of press freedom. We can’t and we won’t forget that. To be an American journalist is not only a great responsibility, but also a great honor. To be a Fox journalist is a high honor, not a high crime. Even this memo of support will cause some to demonize us and try to find irrelevant things to cause us to waver. We will not waver.
As Fox News employees, we sometimes are forced to stand alone, but even then when we know we are reporting what is true and what is right, we stand proud and fearless. Thank you for your hard work and all your efforts.
The vicious assault on Liberty and freedom by the Obama regime must be stopped. Obama and his thugs have used the full power of the Executive Branch to attack an untold number of law abiding, hard working, American people. Obama and his thug government have, for all intents and purposes, has declared war on the American people. It’s past time something was done to counter this assault.
Readers will remember the Governor was calling for Holder’s resignation in 2011, after learning the details of the gun smuggling operation Fast and Furious, that saw Holder and Obama arm Mexican narco-terrorists in a failed attempt to use the mass murders in Mexico caused by these weapons, as a way to confiscate weapons from law abiding citizens in our country.
Governor Palin said, in part:
Why would any government official with an ounce of common sense think it’s a good idea to facilitate the smuggling of thousands of guns into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels? That’s what Operation Fast and Furious did.
