White House Press Secretary Jay Carney speaks during the daily press briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, DC, May 14, 2013. Jay Carney said the White House had nothing to do with the operation to comb the AP’s phone records — as part of an apparent case targeting national security leakers. “We are not involved in decisions made in connection with criminal investigations, as those matters are handled independently by the Justice Department,” said Carney.
