The US Department of Justice (DOJ) taped into 20 telephone lines of The Associated Press (AP) in April and May 2012.
This is the warning from Gary Pruitt, president and CEO of The Associated Press:
Statement from May 13, 2013
The U.S. Department of Justice notified The Associated Press on Friday, May 10, that it had secretly obtained telephone records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP journalists and offices, including cell and home phone lines.
AP is asking the DOJ for an immediate explanation of the extraordinary action and for the records to be returned to AP and all copies destroyed.
AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt protested the massive intrusion into AP’s newsgathering activities in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, May 13.
In the letter Pruitt states:
“There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters.
These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s newsgathering operations, and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know.”
“We regard this action by the Department of Justice as a serious interference with AP’s constitutional rights to gather and report the news.”

The present regime in Washington is quickly copying the working tools of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Gobbles. To be able to rule without opposition, the media needs to come under supervision and control of the Government.
Obama represent a Trojan Horse that has entered into the power houses in Washington. Totalitarian men, who embrace lies and cheating. Many of the advisers of Barak Hussein Obama, are men who claim “Islam is a religion of peace”.
Terrorism is based on the ideology of controlling people by creating fear.
Americans at large is scared, or are sleeping. Few are voicing their option against the Obama-regime. Freedom, democracy and liberty is at risk.
The Lord said to me, “Son of man, these are the men who are plotting evil and giving wicked advice in this city.
This is another Watergate. Richard Nixon had to get his hands on analog documents, and became a burglar. Obama just tapped into emails and SMS log’s. “Bengazigate” was just a follow up. Get ready for a new totalitarian America and the emerging One World Government.
Are you sleeping, or are you just lukewarm?
