MSNBC host Chris Hayes "bet" on national TV today that the Justice Department has also targeted the New York Times for publishing pro-Obama leaks:


“The other shoe to drop on this is the Stuxnet leak investigation,” Hayes added. He said that the leak relating to the Stuxnet virus which debilitated the Iranian nuclear program was clearly released toNew York Times reporter David Sanger from a high-level source. “There’s just no way it wasn’t,” Hayes added.

Hayes said that it would only be fair for the DOJ to be investigating those leaks as well, and he suggested that those investigations had probably taken place.

“There is no way, in my humble opinion, that the New York Times was not subject to the same kinds of warrants,” Hayes speculated. “We haven’t seen them yet, but I would bet that they’re going to come out.”
