The White House has asserted executive privilege over documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal.

Is he even back from Mexico?
Nope. Too late for both of them. They are linked like the Siamese Twins. (Like someone said earlier) Holder had too much/many goods on teh WON.
Their only hope is the massive voter fraud they’ve been hoping (and manufacturing).
Chief Justice Roberts should announce the Supreme Court will be bstaying in session this summer, due to a request from Congress to expedite ruling on Zippy’s assertion of executove privilege.
William Lacy Clay of St. Louis up at bat—another Rat defending the AG.
Now hearing from Ann Marie Buerkle, NY-Syracuse, R—about holding the government accountable. A theme Rats cannot fathom.
full DU thread (all replies easy to read)
note that there are a few replies to it, at least two also critical of Holder / F&F
HA! Now Gerald Connolly, RAT of CA, calls this “a kangaroo court!”
BTW, next time a RAT says “sad day for this committee”, DRINK!
Having heard and read hundreds of millions (approaching near 700 million rounds during two separate purchases), yet do not have actual numbers of rounds purchased, does anyone have the absolute numbers purchased?
Rat Gerald Connelly, D-Fairfax up now.
Almost started crying at beginning of statement, calls this “a kangaroo court”.
Call the Waaaaaaaam—bulance!
“...paving the way for the fascist super-state we see emerging more and more with every passing hour....”
Man, you hit that one right on the head, good brother...
I saw it as either of two outcomes: FuBO throws Holder under the bus to protect his own ass, or the Exec Priv option.
He won’t throw a “brutha” under the bus, especially when that brutha’s running the law enforcement apparatus, so it leaves the other option.
Which, again, tells me the paving stones lead right to FuBO’s doorstep.
Every GOP member in the House and Senate should see this for what it is, reach down and prove they have a pair, and start taking whatever steps are available to a co-equal branch of the government to bring these two to justice.
(Fat chance, I know...)
There is a surprising amount of reasonableness in that thread.
Based on the liberals’ responses to Obama’s hi-jinx over the last couple of months I think the guy is in serious trouble.
Now this dim calls the hearing a “Kangaroo Court” and THEN accuses the GOP of name calling, etc. What vile scum these dims are.
Now Rat Connally gets to the crux of the Rat strategy in F&F:
We need more stringent gun laws to prevent guns from going across the southern border.
beg pardon, Connolly is a RAT from VA (neighbor-key typo earlier)
also invokes Wide Receiver lie — DRINK!
also wants us to believe that House has never considered Contempt against AG, therefore it shouldn’t be done now — DRINK!
I’ll bet the post went ignored by them and disappeared shortly after.
Patrick Meehan, R-Media, PA—says I was a former US attorney and prosecutor and this is no kangaroo court, in answer to Connally’s absurd charge.
I’d like to see what 1/2 of 1/3rd of the government can do here.
Contempt is very likely and once it goes before the entire congress, there will be democrats that vote just because they evoked executive privilege. What the executive branch did was the very definition of contempt.
very historic few days ahead of us..
My question is are they willing to sacrifice O and H to get those gun laws? Once this investigation gets to the point they expose (as in talk about it openly) the plot to use FF to ram gun laws down America’s throat, the backlash will be total destruction of Dem power for decades. All those record gun sales show there are still more of us than them. Those owners will not be voting to give up their guns.
Will they stop the train before it gets that far?
Rep Patrick Meehan, Republican PA, also asks what did he know and when did he know it
Rep Steven Lynch, RAT of MA: throws Phoenix ATF office under the bus
I got a live person...her name was Grace and was extremely nice!
Rep. Stephen Lynch D-Mass has just admitted the Dept. of Justice sent Congress a false letter on C-Span. Yet he is circling the wagons with the rest of the democRATs to blame W. Currently calling the investigation partisan. If the investigation is partisan Mr. Rep. why not call for the truth and the documents?
