On May 17, 2013, the United States Department of Justice was reported by the Washington Post to have been monitoring Rosen's activities by tracking his visits to the State Department. After the intel was gathered, James was labeled a "criminal co-conspirator" with Stephen Jin-Woo Kim. In a written statement, the Justice Department said it had followed “all applicable laws, regulations, and longstanding Department of Justice policies intended to safeguard the First Amendment interests of the press in reporting the news and the public in receiving it.” Nevertheless, the Department’s aggressive tactics that were used in order to gather information, sparked an outcry among analysts who claimed that such an approach has a chilling effect on news organizations. Fox News contributor, Judge Andrew Napolitano, commented: "This is the first time that the federal government has moved to this level of taking ordinary, reasonable, traditional, lawful reporter skills and claiming they constitute criminal behavior."

Dana Milibank of the Washington Post made an even bolder statement against the government: "The Rosen affair is as flagrant an assault on civil liberties as anything done by George W. Bush’s administration, and it uses technology to silence critics in a way Richard Nixon could only have dreamed of. To treat a reporter as a criminal for doing his job seeking out information the government doesn’t want made public deprives Americans of the First Amendment freedom on which all other constitutional rights are based”.

Public opinion was in favor of James Rosen, which kept the government from going further with the investigation. The matter was soon forgotten.
