House resolution condemns NY Times

As expected and hoped for, GOP leadership in the House of Representatives today will do the right thing.

The Hill reports:

House Republican leaders are expected to introduce a resolution today condemning The New York Times for publishing a story last week that exposed government monitoring of banking records.

The resolution is expected to condemn the leak and publication of classified documents, said one Republican aide with knowledge of the impending legislation.

This is indeed a welcome development. GOP House leadership is showing that they are in tune with the American people. Paging Bill Frist…where is the Senate companion resolution?

UPDATE: Here is an AP story with this choice quote from Jack Kingston:

“Somebody clearly broke the law in leaking this to The New York Times. The New York Times in my opinion has simply acted irresponsibly,” Kingston, R-Ga., said.

UPDATE: The Senate this afternoon is slated to debate and vote on the Oman Free Trade Agreement. Is that really as pressing as dealing with the NT Times issue?
