Turley brings up a key issue, that Leahy is smart to first request e-mails directed to DOJ officials, which he's entitled to as they "dead ended in the Justice Department," which falls under his jurisdiction. At that point, according to Turley, if Leahy finds evidence of criminal activity he's going to "be a bulldozer and he's going to go straight for the White House and I think he's going to succeed."
