Eric Holder Learned From Unethical Texas Prosecutor!

Can't get a warrant or a subpoena from a judge? Just keep shopping until you find one.

GRETCHEN CARLSON: I think this may be the most egregious thing that comes out of this case so far today, which is it's now becoming apparent that possibly Eric Holder was judge shopping, so to speak. So, he had to go to a judge to get a subpoena to be able to look into James Rosen's personal e-mails, his phone calls, etc., who he was talking to. Now, it turns outs that apparently he went to not one but two, no three judges on a shopping spree to find a judge that would actually say, let's not tell James Rosen that we're doing this. Let's not tell Fox News or News Corps that we're doing this, and I find that to be the most egregious part of this story thus far.

STEVE DOOCY: The first two judges said, no, we can't do that. You're prosecuting journalism. Eventually, Judge Royce Lamberth overturned the first two judges and away we went.

CARLSON: That is a lot of deliberate work to go from one judge to two judges to three judges and then for Eric Holder to get under oath and say he's never done this and never had anything to do with this. To me that is one of the most important points of this story thus far. 

7:07 a.m. Eastern

CARLSON: Apparently Eric Holder was judge shopping to get this whole thing to happen where he could investigate James Rosen who works for Fox News and the dealings he was having at the State Department. Why did he have to judge shop? Because let's look at the three judges. The first two said, no, we're not going to let this happen. Were not going to let you subpoena and not tell James Rosen that you're looking into his personal e-mails and his personal phone records and listening possibly into his phone calls. Judge Alan Kay denied it. Judge John Facciola - I hope I pronounced that right - denied it, and it finally went to Royce Lamberth, who did approve it. So look guys, this was not just, hey Ill see if, you know, this is on a whim; I am going to go to a judge and see what happens. This took a lot of work. It took a lot of work and effort to get to three judges who finally the third judge said yes. 

That immediately rang a bell for me, regarding the conduct of the unethical partisan prosecutor who got Tom DeLay indicted.

"During the five-day period of Sept. 29, 2005, to Oct. 3, 2005, Ronnie Earle and his staff engaged in an extraordinarily irregular, and desperate attempt to contrive a viable charge and get a substitute indictment of Tom DeLay before the expiration of the statute of limitations on Oct. 3, 2005," the motion states.

That's right -- if the government doesn't get what it wants with its first bite at the apple, it will bite again and again and again until some part of the judicial system gives in.

Remember -- a corrupt prosecutor believes justice isn't served until he gets his way.

Whatever happened to Speaker Delay? The whole case seems to have fallen of the face of the earth. Was he ever tried? Or is the case just hanging fire, neither fish nor fowl.

They got a conviction, but the whole thing is being run through a series of appeals.
