FBI may step into British investigation of Murdoch empireThe FBI has told Scotland Yard it is "prepared to step in" if the Metropolitan Police fails to investigate the full extent of impropriety in the Murdoch empire. The warning came at a meeting between the transatlantic law enforcement groups at the Ministry of Justice in London.
Fear of such a US investigation, where financial penalties and potential jail sentences are held to be more punitive than in the UK, is one reason cited why News Corp, Murdoch's US holding company, has stepped up efforts to assist UK police in recent months. It is widely believed to be one of the reasons it handed over to police a cache of millions of emails containing evidence of possible crimes, to the dismay of many of its own staff. The Murdoch operation has assembled a team of US legal "big guns" to deal with inquiries by the FBI and other investigators, including the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Just wondering where the FBI gets the idea that they can go to a foreign country and investigate without an invitation? Am I the only one or does Holder think he is God, too?

I think it's because Murdoch owns substantial US media interests as well.
We do seem to be able to extradite easy pickings to the US while being unable to actually get rid of real trouble.
