Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday assigned two U.S. attorneys to lead a criminal investigation into possible, unauthorized leaks of classified government information.
The announcement follows a bipartisan call from Capitol Hill for an investigation and a special prosecutor to look into suspect national security leaks — which congressional lawmakers say is needed because the disclosures have put Americans world-wide at risk and perhaps came from the Obama administration.
Holder has assigned Ronald C. Machen Jr., a U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, and Rod J. Rosenstein, a U.S. attorney for Maryland.
