Slight Knock-Down of Eric Holder Story

Some are a little meh on this story, because, they say, the law requires Eric Holder (and no one else) to sign these sorts of warrants.

So, they're saying: Didn't we already sort of know/guess this? The knock-down isn't that the story is false, but that it is, or should have been, obvious, and hence isn't shocking news.

Ehhhh... I guess I admit I didn't consider that.

Still... certainly it's news to me he signed the warrants, given that he'd been so fulsome in noting his complete recusal from decision-making in the AP case.

I guess I was assuming that the signature here, too, may have been delegated.

But it wasn't.

So I insist this is a big story. It adds to what we know. Perhaps many (smarter than I) suspected this was the case, but knowing beats suspecting.
