Holder will lose Executive Privilege fight on F&F fight

Discussion in 'Political Issues' started by stormspotter, Jun 20, 2012.


    "...there are two types of executive privilege. One is a strong form rooted in the Constitution, called the presidential communication privilege. But there is another type, much weaker and rooted in common law instead of the Constitution, called the deliberative process privilege. That second, weaker variety is what President Obama invoked today regarding Holder".

    The documents will not be given as long as Barry is in office.

    Two possibilities, they will be taken, or Romney's AG will hand them over.

    What the squatter did was try to protect himself and his administration from being held responsible for their own criminal conduct. That is all.

    If he does, the coverup will go on at leisure .....

  6. What ever the case the administration will have to cough up a list of documents they want covered shortly, if they don't than EP isn't valid on the requested documents.

    The media is FINALLY starting to report on this. They didn't have much of a choice even after their intentionally ignoring it for the last couple of years. They are attempting to spin this as a republican witch hunt and Bush's fault. But the nagging doubt will be left in people's heads as to why Obama chose to use his first EP order to protect Holder who was being investigated after guns Obama's government intentionally gave to drug dealers turned up at the murder scene of a federal agent (and others).

    Doubt it.

    Besides that it's just a political witch hunt.

    Don't we have more important things to worry about?

    Despite your desire to whitewash this, it's actually not a witchhunt, nor is it an attempt to criminalize policy differences. After all, normal-thinking people don't believe the US Government should be supplying assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels. So if you think this is just a witch hunt, then you apparently are on board with the policy matter in question, no?

    Oh...and providing guns to Mexican drug cartels is kind of a criminal matter, so there's that.

    I'm gonna have to start circulating that photo of Nixbama... :supergrin:

  11. Doubt what? Typical, say "doubt it", but don't expand on why you doubt what ever your refering to.
    So I guess if we use your logic, that means that Valerie Plame House Oversight Committee hearing was also just a political witch hunt... Right?

    That any investigation into the recent security leaks are simply a political witch hunt... Right?

    Interesting how those on the left deem any scrutiny into the causes of, and deaths associated with, Fast and Furious to simply be a political witch hunt. :upeyes:
    Like what? Bypassing Congress and legalizing more illegals? Giving bailouts to more cronies? Playing more golf? Hanging with more communists and socialists? Telling us more lies about one's past history? Doing another campaign speech? Telling insiders that he's doing gun control behind the scenes?

    Yeah. Because supplying the weapons for death and destruction at our southern border isn't that important.

    That's exactly what Republicans called it when Harriet Miers, Josh Bolton and Karl Rove refused to testify before Congress- a witch hunt. And the same thing that happened to those three will happen to Holder and the Administration- nothing.
