It’s pretty pathetic when a sitting President invokes Executive Privilege (EP) over something that he supposedly had nothing to do with. If he didn’t have anything to do with Fast and Furious, then why is invoking EP?
If, as he claims, he had nothing to with, or any fore knowledge of F&F then how in the hell can he invoke EP?
Looks like shit, smells like shit, tastes like shit. Guess it’s a good thing they didn’t step in it.

House committee suspects ‘Fast and Furious’ cover-up
Answers may be in 1,300 pages it wants

The House committee investigating Fast and Furious has received more than 7,600 documents from the Justice Department, but Republican lawmakers say none addresses who approved the gunrunning probe, who failed to stop it before a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed and why department officials initially lied to Congress about it.

Now the panel has its sights set on an additional 1,300 pages of documents it believes will answer those questions and also expose a political cover-up at Justice.

Nevertheless, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s quest for records got more complicated this week when President Obama asserted executive privilege and refused to turn them over — and the committee in turn voted to recommend holding Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt of Congress.

Together, they are the crux of what has become the biggest separation-of-powers battle of the Obama administration.
