The Obama administration failed to adhere to a court-ordered Friday deadline to turn over all subpoenaed documents to Congress about the government's role in the 2009-2011 Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, prompting immediate complaints from Congress.
"Today, under court order, DOJ turned over some of the subpoenaed documents," House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz said in a statement late Friday. "The committee, however, is entitled to the full range of documents for which it brought this lawsuit. Accordingly, we have appealed the District Court's ruling in order to secure those additional documents."
A U.S. District Court judge had ruled in January that the Obama administration could not claim executive privilege to keep from making these files public. The Justice Department was given another 60 days to turn over the information.
"As we've long asserted, the committee requires and is entitled to these documents. They are critical to the committee's efforts to complete meaningful oversight. The committee has a duty to understand and shine light on what was happening inside DOJ during the time of this irresponsible operation," Chaffetz said.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
They have been dragging this out for 5 years. Clearly they have no intention of releasing the documents.
The most transparent administration ever ... maybe they’ll show the docs on CSPAN.
Obiesnicker. Court order.......chuckle, gafaw, snort.
Code Magenta cone of silence time, chief.
Can we not throw people in jail? Put the thumbscrews to someone? Pull a few fingernails?
This is now way past the point of no return.
There's no laws for the powerful.
There's no laws for pirates.
And there ain't no laws fer the brave ones.
The Executive under Obola is a law unto itself.
you would think that by now they would have had enough time to either hide the documents or shred every copy of them...or are they in Hillary’s closet like the Rose law firm billing documents........
More acting by Traitorcongress vermin.
Some people need to be frog marched (remember that?) into prison or nothing will change. Throw the vermin in the hoosegow and everything will change.
This is easy. Vote a contempt citation and put the bureaucrats in jail until the documents show up. No one in the oligarch camp will risk their necks for anyone. That is the way with criminals.
We have a criminal government with criminal assistants at ALL levels. How disgusting.
magic negro probably had the same incompetent group decide which documents to release as did Hillary on her emails.
It was probably only a matter of time until he figured he could get away with flipping off federal judges as well.
