Skip to comments.Obama grants Holder request on 'Furious' documents as contempt vote looms (Executive Privilege)
Posted on 06/20/2012 7:37:10 AM PDT by stevie_d_64
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.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead Wednesday morning with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway.
If the vote proceeds, Republicans have more than enough votes on committee to pass the resolution. However, Holder would not be considered held in contempt of Congress unless and until the full House approves the measure.

So far: 94.91% favor Full Steam Ahead on Contempt proceedings all the way to the House floor.
so does executive privilege tell us Obama was involved with fast and furious all along
Oh, big surprise...
Holder hiding behind Obammmy’s skirts...
Most transparent admin evah!
Impeach the President and Holder. If not, America is done. This is now past the joke our Federal Government is. America, it is time to kick all these useless bast@@@@ out on their collective butts.
IMPEACH THEM BOTH!
Issa needs to immediately supoena(?) phone records for the last 72 hours from Obama, Axelrod, Jarrett and Holder. And I do mean now!
This President and the people he has surrounded himself with are a bunch of LIARS and they certainly don’t believe in the Constitution!! AND Obama was a constitutional professor...WHAT a CROCK OF BS! Even if he’s elected again, he will have to resign just like Nixon during his next term! The TRUTH always comes out. NOW we just need the REPUBLICANS and some DEMS to stand up for our Constitution regardless of the skin color of the president and attorney general. That’s what’s keeping all this from going full steam ahead...AND EVERYONE knows it!
“so does executive privilege tell us Obama was involved with fast and furious all along”
It most certainly does.
Poll link here ping.
Yes...they do need those records NOW! Do they have the guts to do it??? I certainly hope so. Our country’s future is depending on this very moment because if Obama and his ilk can get away with this....they can do pretty much anything they want!
Yes. But we knew that already.
The latest move by obama to reinforce his message to the lowly peons that he is KNG!
I think you’re right with your statement and was wondering if Fast and Furious really wasn’t about tracking drug lords but rather a “deal” between the drug lords to use the guns for a short period of time, thus legitimizing that theory, and then with directions on how to get them to the Muslim Brotherhood along with a substantial payoff to these same drug lords. I think Obama and Holder can hear the barking dog.
“Executive Priviledge” proves the lie that Obama did not know about F&F.
Can’t assert a priviledge over something you didn’t autthorize.
I would say this is worse than Watergate, but unlike the Watergate hearings which were shown all day on the major networks, looks like it's regular programming on all the networks!
“so does executive privilege tell us Obama was involved with fast and furious all along’
Yes and this was their plan all along. Obama told Holder, “Stonewall. If the Pubbies actually get the balls to vote contempt, I’ll CYA with EP. No prob. We are safe. We’ll continue to work on gun control other ways.”
... and unlike 1973, Big Leftist Media doesn’t have a monopoly on the message anymore
39 years later, get ready for “The Democrats’ Watergate”!!
Your lack of trust in the most transparent and ethical administration ever is disturbing.
If I understand correctly, the only way that Obama could claim it’s Ex.P. is if he is directly involved in, and/or has direct knowledge of, the documents subpoenaed.
That’s really big.
It’s long past time for a special prosecutor and then a Grand Jury.
