Holder lied, either to the Court or Congress

Jennifer Rubin notes that when AG Eric Holder told Congress that he had nothing to do with the wiretapping of Fox News' James Rosen, it doesn't square with the court order DOJ requested:
The catch is this: If Holder never considered prosecution of journalists including Rosen, then the affidavit laying out a purported criminal case against Rosen was a ruse, a false statement under oath, directed to the court to conduct a wide-ranging dragnet. If, on the other hand, the affidavit which Holder signed off on is true in laying out the case against Rosen, then he didn’t level with Congress. In either event, he needs to come back and explain himself. If he refuses or takes the Fifth, there is no alternative but to name a special prosecutor.
Also, we now know that Holder went judge-shopping until he found somebody to sign off on the secret spying.  This case has gone far past the question of impropriety.  Time for a special prosecutor.
