President Barack Obama is resisting a congressional subpoena for documents related to how the administration responded to the revelation of the failed operation known as "Fast and Furious" on the U.S.- Mexican border.
Justice Department lawyer Ian Gershengorn told a hearing the matter was best left to the give-and-take of the U.S. government's two elected branches, the president and Congress, and should not be a matter for the courts.
"That is how it has worked for 225 years," said Gershengorn, referring to the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson was skeptical and told Gershengorn, "There are three branches here, not just two." She did not say how she would rule, but questioned Gershengorn for more than twice as long as she did House of Representatives lawyer Kerry Kircher.

gun control everywhere... but you’re not finding out about MY gun operations....
John Boehner AKA "The No Nutz Putz"
Yup. The GOP are an embarrassment. Totally spineless.
He has to kiss ass to be able to be one of the boys and play golf with his master.
The GOP is just the “non- communist” arm of the Democrat party..
Nearly 2 1/2 years after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s death, we still don’t have justice.
Sadly, I don’t think there will be justice for the Benghazi deaths either.
Let’s do a count of how many Mexican children died as a result of obuma’s gun-running operation into Mexico.
No, he’s NOT “resisting a subpeona” - he’s in direct violation of the law.
So SAY it!!!!
“Obama’s breaking the law again!”
There, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
“The GOP is just the ‘non- communist’ arm of the Democrat party..”
That’s the truth!
Thanks for the ping.
Obama and Eric Holder illegally shipped thousands of “assault” weapons to the Mexican drug cartels in their operation Fast & Furious, they have been involved in at least 302 deaths of innocent men, women and children, isn’t time to release these document even if it saves just one life?
obama deserves to be impeached if he does not hand over these documents.
He’s not just gun running to the mexico border, he’s gun running all over the world.
I’m documenting it @ guns2jihadists.com
Damn! Isn’t it’s just unbelievable that during the most evil administration ever we have such a wussy leading the opposition?
It’s no wonder people feel helpless as they watch this loser party not say a word about these crimes.
