Former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson on Saturday posted 2011 email correspondence between attorney general Eric Holder and communications adviser Matthew Miller on how to best manipulate press coverage of theFast and Furious gun-walking scandal.
(President Obama withheld the email under executive privilege but it was recently released as a result of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch against the Justice Department).
In response to Miller’s decision to leave the Justice Department that same year, Holder said in a statement that he was ‘greatly saddened” by the decision and that he “will miss his judgment, humor and spirit.”
“He has been one of my most trusted and tireless advisers, a person to whom I could go with the most difficult of issues and always receive wise counsel. Matt has played a critical role in helping reshape the Department over the last two and a half years.”
