"I don't want to jump to judgment here because many of us did call on the administration to investigate leaks; I am struck by what appears to be a very broad net and not a very targeted look," Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told reporters on Tuesday, Buzzfeed reports. "I think the best thing to do would be to have the attorney general come over and testify before the Judiciary Committee."
