Correction: Intelligence Leaks story

Friday - 6/8/2012, 2:22pm EDT

WASHINGTON (AP) - A story that moved June 7, 2012, about members of Congress discussing leaks of classified information misstated what Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said. Rogers said that parts of the Justice Department had recused themselves from one of the investigations to avoid the appearance of a potential conflict, not that the department had refused to cooperate. A Justice Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive issues, said other parts of the department were participating in the investigation, and a decision to recuse certain officials was routine.
