AG Holder reviewing possible News Corp investigation

Once again, if the tables were turned there’s no question an investigation would have started already. It’s hard to believe so many Democrats are sitting on the side with this issue. CNN:

News Corp. is embroiled in a phone hacking scandal in the United Kingdom that forced one of its top executives, Rebekah Brooks, to resign Friday. Now, U.S. legislators say they want to know if the company engaged in that illegal activity in the United States

“There have been serious allegations raised in that regard in Great Britain; there is an ongoing investigation,” Holder told reporters in Sydney, Australia.

“There have been members of Congress in the United States who have asked us to investigate those same allegations. And we are progressing in the regard using the appropriate federal agencies in the United Sates.”

The office of prominent American attorney Brendan V. Sullivan Jr. confirmed to CNN that he has been retained by News Corp.
