Obama: If You’re Investigating a Case, ‘Just Do Your Job’ Unless You Unearth Something

During an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton broadcast on Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s “All In,” President Obama commented on recent FBI leaks by stating, “When you are investigating a case, then, unless you have unearthed something, you need to just do your job. If there are things that you think are worth presenting, then you present them to a prosecutor.”

Obama said, “When you are investigating a case, then, unless you have unearthed something, you need to just do your job. If there are things that you think are worth presenting, then you present them to a prosecutor. … We give enormous power to our law enforcement officials to keep us safe, to do a great job, to protect us, but we also put these norms and rules in place, some of them written, some unwritten, to make sure that any of us are not suddenly effected by innuendo or rumors. And that’s true for an ordinary citizen, and it’s true for somebody who’s running for president of the United States.”
