Lawmakers: Justice Must Move Fast on Leaks Inquiry

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Rep. Mike Rogers suggested on CBS' "Face the Nation" that they're willing to see how prosecutors conduct their investigation before considering whether a department-appointed special counsel should take over.

Rogers says he'll be watching for signs of undue political influence.

Feinstein says she believes Obama's assertion that the White House wasn't involved in the disclosures and she hopes the investigation can "get to a relatively quick disposition."

At issue are disclosures about U.S. involvement in cyberattacks on Iran and drone strikes on suspected terrorists, and an al-Qaida plot to place an explosive device aboard a U.S.-bound flight.
