At a news conference Tuesday, Holder said the AP records were seized as part of an investigation into leaks. The information had been in an AP report about a CIA operation in Yemen that stopped an airliner bombing plot.

Update at 1:30 p.m. ET. Lawmakers Have "Serious Concerns":
As the hearing gets underway, "the leaders of the House Judiciary Committee are expressing serious concerns about the Justice Department's gathering of phone records at The Associated Press," the wire service reports. "Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte told Attorney General Eric Holder at a hearing Wednesday that he worries about any infringement on freedom of the press. Democratic Rep. John Conyers said he was troubled by the notion of the government pursuing a broad array of phone records."
