Correction: Intelligence Leaks story
WASHINGTON (AP) ' A story that moved June 7, 2012, about members of Congress discussing leaks of classified information erroneously stated that the Justice Department would not cooperate in an investigation into the leaks. Some Justice Department officials have recused themselves from one of the investigations to avoid appearance of a potential conflict. The AP also neglected to include Justice Department comment in the story. A Justice Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity to avoid discussing sensitive issues, said that such a decision is a routine matter and in no way suggests any wrongdoing on the part of these officials but is designed to ensure complete compliance with all potential ethics obligations.
