Obama’s senior adviser was incensed. It had gotten back to him that Holder and his aides were spreading the word that he was trying to improperly influence the Justice Department. Axelrod, who knew all too well that even the hint of White House meddling with Justice Department investigations could detonate a full-blown scandal, had been careful not to come close to that line. ‘Don’t ever, ever accuse me of trying to interfere with the operations of the Justice Department,’ he warned Holder after confronting … [Read more...] about NEW ROMNEY SLOGAN: ‘PUTTING JOBS FIRST’ — MARK PENN: OBAMA SHOULD ANNOUNCE NEW JOBS PLAN focusing on education, innovation — Caren Bohan leaving Reuters — Chris Lehane b’day
