President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway.

They got oo’s.
Most. Open. Administration. Ever. NOT!
Issa: A Border Patrol Agent was killed by a gun used in operation Fast and Furious. I want to know why.
Obama: Hide the documents!
That was fast ... obozo didn’t even wait until lunch ...
IL Duce has spoken.
Now let’s see if Congress had a spine, or can grow one ASAP.
THEY SHOULD STILL VOTE AND HOLD MR. WITHHOLDER IN CONTEMPT as he was withholding information and stone walling
A tacit admission that Obama was involved in F&F
We are now into Constitutional crisis territory.
0bama’s definition of transparency.
Nixon’s Watergate was, by today’s standards, “victimless.” I was the cover up of an office break in. Obama’s Fast and Furious involves the DEATH of a US Border Patrol Agent AND HUNDREDS of Mexican nationals.
Hold Holder in Contempt of Congress and draw up the Articles of Impeachment.
The next days will be fascinating.
Start the impeachment proceedings in the House now. Just do it. Don’t tell me “he’ll lose the election in 4 months anyway”. He might find a way to prevent that too.
Captain Transparency Strikes Again!!! We are ABOVE the law!!!
I’m no longer going to refer to Barack as Dictator in Chief. He’s merely to be know as a dick now.
How could Obama NOT have been involved?
Here we had the first African American president, and his tool Holder. Can anybody honestly believe that Holder would have been making moves without the knowledge and approval of his boss?
That defies all logic and would prove the utter incompetency of the administration right there!
Neal Bortz getting set to go wild on this on the radio.
Cannot wait to hear Rush today.
Grassley said: How can the White House grant executive privilege when these discussions did not allegely happen in the white house. My god Jim, even he sees it. By doing so, he tacitly agrees with the contention this was the plan all along, a move against the 2nd amendment.
