The most open administration in history exerts executive privilege to prevent release of "Fast and Furious" documents

Above the law...
WASHINGTONPresident Barack Obama asserted executive privilege for the first time Wednesday, escalating a fight with congressional Republicans over documents about a gun-trafficking probe.
The move threw into uncertainty a possible vote to sanction Attorney General Eric Holder with contempt of Congress.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee was meeting Wednesday morning to discuss the contempt fight. The panel's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), said the committee was evaluating the White House's assertion.

Just like we have to "pass" the bill to find out what's in it, there is no such thing as truth or honesty on the left. When a Republican commits an offense, they step down in disgrace. On the left, they are celebrated. It will be interesting to see how this plays out and how the MSM (under) covers it. I believe we have a marriage of criminals now ready for lockup but we'll have to wait and see. Unfortunately it will not be resolved until after November.
