Skip to comments.Issa: 'Our Purpose Has Never Been to Hold the Attorney General in Contempt'
Posted on 06/20/2012 11:33:45 AM PDT by Nachum
In a last-minute maneuver before a House panel voted on a contempt of Congress charge against embattled Attorney General Eric Holder, the Justice Department notified the House that President Barack Obama was invoking executive privilege to shield documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious. (Snip) Our purpose has never been to hold the attorney general in contempt. Our Purpose has always been to get the information the committee needs to complete its work that it is not only entitled to do but is obligated to do, Issa told the committee Wednesday. If the Justice Department had delivered the documents they

ISSA: I’m Still Screwing Around?
What the he!!. Who gives a damn that murders were committed. Issa, just quit because you know you really don't give a damn or Holder would have been held in contempt a long time ago.
” the Justice Department notified the House that President Barack Obama was invoking executive privilege to shield documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious.”
In other words, there’s something incriminating in there that they don’t want out?
Yes: That is what this says. It says when he was speaking to Ms. Brady about working under the radar, F&F was what he was talking about.
Obama and Holder should both be charged with manslaughter of all of the victims of F&F.
That is such an insult to President Nixon (but the point is well taken)... At least Nixon has some measurable successes in his Presidency.
Eric Holder should be up on charges of being an accessory to murder!
My belief (emphasis on belief) is that the simple explanation is that Holder and Barry are full time employees of the drug cartels. Payment has been (President worth a billion?) facilitated through Hezbollah. Would explain our foreign policy also. Why would a lazy ass like Barky want to get his payoffs from the banks in a long drawn out speaking fee process like Billy Jeff. Billy Jeff loves the public whore hunting expeditions. Billy's got graft for life over the elimination of GlassSteagall. Take a look at his $125,000 speaking engagements. Just following the money.
Living down to our expectations.
Bobo has now tied himself to withholder with handcuffs by claiming EP to withhold more documents. Maybe Issa knows exactly what he is doing. He has now pulled Bobo into this officially.
Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa notes that this means that Obama is claiming privilege for documents it has been claimed he never saw.
“The assertion of executive privilege raises monumental questions,” Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley said in a statement released Wednesday shortly after the president’s move. “How can the President assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement? How can the President exert executive privilege over documents he’s supposedly never seen? Is something very big being hidden to go to this extreme? The contempt citation is an important procedural mechanism in our system of checks and balances. The questions from Congress go to determining what happened in a disastrous government program for accountability and so that it’s never repeated again.”
Grassley is the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee and has previously called a Justice Department investigation into the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning operation “botched.”
Mexico is the only place where a trial could be performed. The US has two justice systems. One for the elitists, demonrats and connected and another for the rest of us.
