Obama agenda: Holder on NSA, voting rights, drugs.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke about NSA surveillance, new voting-rights legislation, and the war on drugs.

On the NSA: Holder dismissed a new government watchdog report which declared some NSA programs illegal, saying he hadn't read the new report from the government's privacy and civil liberties board, but noted that "at least 15 judges on about 35 occasions have said that the program itself is legal."

On the voting-rights legislation: He credited a bipartisan bill, introduced last week by Democrat John Lewis and Republican Jim Sensenbrenner, for going a "long way" towards addressing the Supreme Court's ruling against the law.
