It’s official, Obama has moved to help coverup Fast and Furious:
President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House.
I’m not surprised that a man who orders the assassination of others would try to help coverup an operation run by one of his goons that has lead to the death of a border guard and an unknown number of Mexican citizens. On top of that the documents in question probably show Obama knew about Operation Fast and Furious much earlier than he admitted to, which could make for an undesirable situation this close to the elections. On the upside Issa isn’t playing ball:
Rep. Darrell Issa said Wednesday that he is pressing ahead with a committee vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, despite an 11th-hour move by President Obama to exert executive privilege over the Fast and Furious documents at the heart of the dispute.
It will be interesting to see what’s in these documents if they’re ever unveiled to the public. My primary interest is learning who knew what and for how long although I suspect these documents may hold far more incriminating evidence considering the amount of effort going into keeping them a secret.
