OBAMA CLAIMS EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE OVER FAST AND FURIOUS
Somebody is lying that is a fact that is now obvious. Eric Holder claimed in earlier hearings that Barack Obama knew nothing of the illegal gun running operation known as Fast and Furious which has resulted in the death of one border patrol agent and untold thousands killed by the Mexican cartels using the guns.
Now in a last minute move by Obama he has used Executive privilege on Fast and Furious documents Holder has refused to release to Congress. According to a Supreme Court ruling during the Watergate hearings when Richard Nixon used Executive privilege on information demanded by Congress ONLY documents that specifically involve conversations or meetings that personally involved the President can be protected by Executive privilege.
Either Obama is lying to protect his Attorney General or he had full knowledge of Fast and Furious and was involved with the program from its beginning or Holder is lying about Obama not knowing anything about Fast and Furious. Either way Obama or Holder are lying about this death dealing debacle known as Fast and Furious or both are lying. I'm betting on the later rather than the former.
This is quickly taking on Watergate type proportions with ramifications that far exceed Watergate since Fast and Furious directly caused the death of thousands. It is almost sure Holder will be held in contempt of Congress and how much further this will go up to and including activities involving Obama himself remains to be seen.
