Napolitano Rips on DOJ Targeting Fox Reporter: ‘Don’t Know How Jay Carney Sleeps At Night’

Napolitano explained that Rosen, being a reporter, naturally “cultivated relationships” with people in State Department — but that his “talking and flattering” was not a crime. Firstly, Napolitano said Rosen didn’t receive any national security secrets, and that it’s not a crime for him to ask for information.

“That affidavit was so inaccurate, it said that James committed a crime by doing something that it is only a crime for government employees to do,” he asserted. “This is the first time that the federal government has moved to this level of taking ordinary, reasonable, traditional, lawful reporter skills and claiming they constitute criminal behavior.”
