Holder Refuses To Say If DOJ Monitored Phones of Members of Congress

Attorney General Eric Holder testified before the Senate Appropriates Committee Thursday and refused to answer whether the government monitored the phones of those within Congress. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) posed the question in light of reports that the federal government has been obtaining phone records of millions of Americans who use Verizon as a service provider under a top secret court order, reports Joe Schoffstall .

When asked if he could assure the committee that phones of those in Congress were not monitored, Holder refused to answer the question, saying the current time was inappropriate to discuss the topic.

I'm really not against different factions of government spying on each other, the more infighting, the less time they have  to harass the rest of us. That said, it is really interesting that Holder wouldn't answer the question.
