Eric Holder was informed he would be held in contempt of Congress (after having already LIED to Congress) if he did not produce the requested documents Tuesday morning.
He postponed until Tuesday evening then did not produce them.
Today he gets Big Obama to suppress them.
Classic “dog ate my homework”.
Throw him in the cell they prepared for Roger Clemens. Lied to Congress, right?
It will be interesting to see what a Federal Grand Jury does with this.
Obama has now admitted that he was a participant in the Fast and Furious program. He and Holder are responsible for the murder of Brian Terry.
They can stall this until the end of time. But, eventually justice will deal with these two criminals.
Because George Bush made them.
CNN is not conflicted and still with obama based on how they are presenting this at their web site.
RE :”White House Mocks Issa Fast & Furious Investigation as “Political Theater”,
Did I tell you that Republicans havent thought this out past their vote? Well the past 5 minutes did I tell you?
This is fundraising stuff on both sides now.
Think a MSM reporter will try to get Romney to comment on this?
Then what’s with the executive privilege if it’s all a big nothing?
This is just another new chapter of their made-up narrative to run against dysfunctional Congress. I hope our guys are loaded and ready to fire back with the indisputable facts.
Nixon would have tried this if he had the press in his pocket... If the MSM helps in the cover up, will anyone respect journalists - ever again?
How about the fact that they had 18 months to assert executive privilege and waited until Holder had run out of options?
Are there any thinking people in the Justice Department who don’t like what’s going on?
CNN cover up torture and murder in Iraq under Saddam Hussein to maintain their Baghdad bureau. They will align with evil for political advantage.
The White House Insider, over at the Ulsterman Report, has been predicting that this Holder issue would explode right about now. The timing isn’t accidental. I can’t wait to hear what he says in his next interview.
My recollections from the earlier CSPAN coverage include
Predictable! Assert Executive Privilege, Stonewall, accuse opponents of playing political games.
Hang tough and never admit to anything. Bill Clinton wrote the playbook and now they all run those plays.
Headline on Drudge now...
GRASSLEY: ASSERTION RAISES MONUMENTAL QUESTIONS...
...over documents hes supposedly never seen?
Obama busted...Mexico can go ahead and apply for that international arrest warrant for the gunrunner-in-chief!
On the other side of the political spectrum Breitbart News has gotten its’ teeth into the story. I don’t think they’re gonna let it go. They have some pretty decent investigative journalists @ Breitbart to unleash on this. We shall see.....
All your assertions are logical conclusions.
It will be a cold day in hell before the left is ever logical.
Supreme Court case United States v. Richard Nixon ” the president cannot use executive privilege as an excuse to withhold evidence that is ‘demonstrably relevant to an investigation.’The question is, will Obama get away with this?
Excellent article here-
“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders” 2 Thessalonians 2:9
If the DOJ will not go into court for the House, then Boehner and Issa would have to hire their own counsel to file suit. When the DOJ itself is corrupt and the media is complicit, there are enormous obstacles to overcome to obtain any justice against the Administration.
You declare executive privilege to protect yourself from political theatre?
And this speaks to Obama & Holder's real contempt toward Mexicans.
Pander to them with phoney amnesty or facilitate their murders for political advantage. Whatever.
I don’t tweet.
I'm sorry - I thought the private sector was doing "just fine", right?
No, sir: this isn't about theater... it's about murder.
AHaaHaHahaa.... GREAT POINT! I failed to see the forest while looking at the trees.
No one with a brain. But that's already the case.
Of course there was no statement such as, “If I had a son, he’d look just like Brian Terry.”
It's interesting that when Mexicans serve no political purpose, their deaths don't matter.
It was the news media that brought Nixon down. Obama doesn't have to contend with them.
Could all be a ruse to replace Obama with Hillary to go against Romney. Ugg.
Whether Nixon gave approval or knew about the break-in beforehand, no one died. In F&F people died including, including two Americans: one border control agent and another officer. The total death toll is about 200 people according to Issa and seems consistent with what I’ve read.
These memes leave no room for the true story, that the ATF FORCED gun dealers to comply with a criminal supply system for Mexican gangs trained by the US Military. That the ATF made NO EFFORT to track the weapons, UNLIKE the Bush administration Gun Runner program which had been DISCONTINUED.
Once those two facts are established, there is no possibility of claiming that this was some kind of "botched" sting operation. At that point, one MUST ask, what was the true purpose of such a program so obviously illegal that it had to be authorized from the White House.
When one recognizes the claims made by Hillary and others that '80% of the guns supplying Mexican gangs originate int he Untied States" and that Los Zetas were the principal beneficiaries, the same gang stocking weapons in the Los Agneles area, the resulting obvious purposes of GunWalker were two:
Their political purpose in this case was to serve as exploitable murder statistics.
What is obamma trying to hide?
I read or maybe heard today that is this F&F investigation is not completed by the House committee, by election day, then the investigation has to stop, and the new Congress will have to restart it again next year? Any truth to that?
And The One said, “Let there be jobs!” and there would have been, if only those poopy pants Republicans had agreed to spend more money again. And The One saw the jobs, that they were good, and signed an executive order to create them and spend the money anyway.
White House Mocks Issa Fast & Furious Investigation as “Political Theater”
Lets talk about who died because of this Fast and Furious political theater.
Oh I Forgot! fascists don’t really count death as something which needs investigation,or that a citizen has a right to live?
The Obama administration deserves Americas utter contempt and hatred.
I guess the "transparent" 0bungles administration is above answering any questions about any subject extending to every department under The Won!?!
Nixon’s sin was greater. He was a wildly popular republican.
Mexico - and I mean the people on the streets - is furious about this and it's big news down there. Of course, you'd never know, because our press doesn't bother with Mexico unless there's a gang riot.
Bambi is trying to bail by blaming it on Bush. But comparing Bush's anti-gang sting program, Wide Receiver, which had the support of the Mexican government and the supervision of various US and Mexican federal agencies, with Bambi's anti-gun free-for-all, which the Mexican government never knew about until Issa opened his hearings, is not going to save either Holder or Bambi.
I bet Hillary's revving her motors right about now.
“I think this is turning out better than Issa ever dreamed.”
Perhaps, but Issa was given BOXES of paperwork in 2010 from an unknown source. I suspect he knows what to do about it.
