Obama invokes executive privilege on Fast & Furious documents.
President Barack Obama has asserted executive privilege over documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious. The move followed Attorney General Eric Holder’s last-second request for him to do so, ahead of a scheduled House Oversight Committee vote to begin contempt of Congress proceedings against Holder.
Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said this assertion raises more questions than answers.
“The assertion of executive privilege raises monumental questions,” Grassley said. “How can the President assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement? How can the President exert executive privilege over documents he’s supposedly never seen? Is something very big being hidden to go to this extreme? The contempt citation is an important procedural mechanism in our system of checks and balances. The questions from Congress go to determining what happened in a disastrous government program for accountability and so that it’s never repeated again.”
So just exactly what is this administration hiding? The President just admitted that the documents in question involve communication with the White House. This is the same president who said he had no knowledge of the gun-running operation lead by the ATF.
I’m guessing the documents lead right to the Oval Office and document its plan of letting guns walk to bolster the 90% lie, all in an effort to pave the way for stricter gun control laws (as he promised the Brady folks). This was the “under the radar” approach. And a border patrol agent was murdered because of this policy.
There is nothing this administration won’t stoop to to “fundamentally change America”.
