Did Attorney General Eric Holder's Destruction Of Illegal NSA Files Constitute Obstruction Of Justice

Eric Holder

 According to a recent press report, it was discovered disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder, destroyed incriminating files revealing under his direction, the NSA illegally spied on innocent Americans. As Holder is an employee of the United States government, destroying incriminating files constitutes obstruction of justice. It is the equivalent of destroying evidence in a case.

Where are the "checks and balances?" Where is the oversight? Where is the rule of law? Where is the accountability in that a corrupt, scandal prone sitting Attorney General can make the call to destroy evidence of serious wrongdoing on the administration's part. It amounts to a criminal cover up.

Officials: NSA mistakenly intercepted emails, phone calls of innocent Americans
Insisting that attempts at "100 percent security" will always come with inconveniences, President Barack Obama said "we're going to have to make some choices as a society." NBC's Pete Williams reports. The National Security Agency has at times mistakenly intercepted the private email messages and phone calls of Americans who had no link to terrorism, requiring Justice Department officials to report the errors to a secret national security court and destroy the data, according to two former U.S. intelligence officials.
