Attorney General Eric Holder should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate a series of national security leaks, which are now being probed by the Justice Department, Sen. Joe Lieberman told Chris Wallace in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

“Holder would do the administration and himself a favor if he appointed special counsels in this case because it would remove any appearances that anybody in this administration was trying to block a full-scale investigation,” Lieberman told Wallace.

Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said, “Special counsels, independent counsels before them, were created for situations exactly like this.”

Before Lieberman’s appearance on the show, President Barack Obama’s Senior Adviser David Plouffe denied that the leaks were coming from the White House.

“This national security information is so critical for the president and his administration to make the right decision,” Plouffe told Wallace. “Nobody takes it more seriously than the president of the United States.”
