Posted on 10/01/2013 4:33:59 AM PDT by MestaMachine
A federal judge has rejected Attorney General Eric Holders attempt to keep the courts from wading into the Fast and Furious documents dispute that led to him being held in contempt by the House last year.
In a ruling Monday night, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson turned down the Justice Departments request to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee after President Barack Obama asserted executive privilege to prevent some records about the administrations response to the Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal from being turned over to Congress.
The decision from Jackson, an Obama appointee, largely tracked with a ruling U.S. District Court Judge John Bates a President George W. Bush appointee rendered in 2008 in a similar fight over records pertaining to Bushs dismissal of a batch of U.S. attorneys in 2006.

More appeals. That’s what will give. They will run out the clock in the courts.
Remove holder, then odungheap.
He must not have received the memo, er, horse’s head yet.
One may believe that Darrel Issa is a man of principle and conviction. Or not
One may believe that justice can still be obtained. Or not.
If one chooses the “not” option, why torture yourself even reading the news?
Just being realistic. I’ll get back to you in two years and we’ll see where the investigation is then.
The Judge had better upgrade her medical insurance
before the criminal Holder sends in his personally-armed
thugs and killers to get even (the DO”J” way).
Hey, I’m Eric Holder; do you seriously believe I give a rat’s *ss what some judge says???
Sounds like another "Fresh DOJ Loss" in the making
Show me the documents!
“Maybe something will finally give.”
I would not bet on it!
I’m old enough to remember Watergate.
When Nixon tried this, it was über-national news, blared from TVs, radios and front page headlines in every major paper. We couldn’t get away from it there was so much coverage.
Democratic administration? Ho Hum...
Holder’s gotta go.
Thugs and killers are passé.
He'll send a drone.
But so does the stinking media that enable his crap.
While that was true late in the game, early on the coverage was rather limited. I remember clearly that I had heard the term "Watergate" many times before learning what it was about.
To catch up, I began reading any article I could find. In my local newspaper the articles were invariably on the back pages. Once I started following the story I realized that there was a great cancer growing in the White House.
It was only later that the media began to realize that the issue wasn't going away quietly.
Ooooh, uppity-wuppity JUDICIAL BRANCH...!
Puttin’ on AIRS, getting all FANCY with that, there “Separation of Powers” stuff..!
Somebody in for a whuppin’ from da people who COUNTS..!
Holder should be in prison.
