Minutes ahead of the scheduled beginnings to official contempt of Congress proceedings against Attorney General Eric Holder over Operation Fast and Furious, Holder has asked President Barack Obama to assert the Executive Privilege to allow the administration to withhold documents from Congress.

The White House has asserted the privilege.

The Evil George Bush testified before Investigators on more than one ocassion as did anyone in his Administration taht was requested, when the Office Worker Valerie Plame claimed "Victim Status" and was treated like the Poor little woman that she was in need of help from the Big BOI'S.

The evil Richard Nixon tried to cover up the actions of his Zealous Campaign Personnel and had the decency to "quit" before America was dragged further into a Constitutional Crisis.

NOW we have the Black Male Candidate that was erected by the Demokrat Power Brokers using the Authority his Handlers have told him to excersize to act to "Prevent" the truth about the Corrupt Handlers and the actions of thier Lackeys which have resulted in the death of a Federal Agent (Not a revelation that he was at a time in his life and ACTIVE Agent as the Victim Plame was)....A DEATH that is a DIRECT result of the Puppets Handlers......AND...how many more deaths in Mexico because of the Incompetence of the Puppets Handlers?

Compare what the Evil Republicans Nixon and Bush did, to the DEATHS! that resulted from the actions of the Incompetent Demokrats of Amerika Today!

It is sad that the real Power Brokers of the Chicago Mob and the other Demokrat Power Brokers cannot be Impeached.....But Mr Obama signed on for the Golf, Basketball, Patries and the Teleprompter....And therefore he needs to face justice at the hands of the peoples Representatives in order to avoid the worst Constitutional Crisis in US History!

The Justice Department sent nearly 500 pages of documents to Republican lawmakers Thursday that suggest the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives may have used questionable tactics and lost track of American-made weapons in a gun trafficking investigation on the Mexican border as early as 2006.

The documents sent to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) could add a new dimension to a political controversy that's raged on Capitol Hill for a year. Issa and other Republican lawmakers have accused the Obama administration of acting recklessly by losing track of almost 2,000 guns on the Southwest border in a botched ATF operation called Fast and Furious. Two of those weapons were recovered near the body of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

The newly released email messages and briefing papers suggest there may be similarities between the Obama operation "Fast and Furious" and an earlier effort during the Bush administration to target the flow of guns into Mexico. The papers include several communications between ATF supervisors and Justice Department prosecutors in Arizona who were trying to build a case against "a very powerful, aggressive and violent" Mexican drug cartel in an earlier operation dubbed "Wide Receiver."

A senior Obama administration Justice Department official who briefed reporters on the documents said the papers show law enforcement officers in the Bush years could have filed criminal conspiracy and false statements charges against lower level figures in the gun trafficking operation, but they decided to watch and wait until they could move higher up the chain of command.

"We want the... manufacturing and distribution pieces also we want it all," an ATF official wrote in March 2006.

The case ultimately languished in the U.S. Attorney's office in Arizona until the Obama administration sent help from Washington D.C. and indictments were handed down in May and October 2010. Six people have been convicted in connection with Wide Receiver, the senior Justice Department official said.

The new disclosures could be featured in a Feb. 2 hearing where Attorney General Eric Holder will square off against Issa over the ATF failures. The last time the two men met on Capitol Hill, fireworks erupted, when Issa likened Holder to the Nixon era Attorney General John Mitchell and Holder reached back to the era of Joseph McCarthy and asked Issa whether he "had any shame."

Anyone with a brain that has kept up on this act of Political Chicanery by the incompetents that the Sheeple Erected in 2008 KNOWS the story and the truth......Claims of "Executive Privilege" by The Messiah's Handlers only show that even the incompetents fear what a revelation of thier crimes will do to the incompetents.

THIS IS the final act of idiocy that will make the Demokrat Party of Amerika a footnote in histroy!

Who were the idiots that voted for this fraud?

Why would a leftist stooge not mention that Operation Wide Receiver ended in 2007 after it was found that the Mexican government was not able to complete their end of the program? Operation Fast and Furious was not a continuation of the Bush admin program, because that program was shut down nearly 2 years earlier! If anything the failure of the Operation Wide Receiver makes the question of "why was Operation Fast and Furious implemented?", even more baffling.

Wreeeeek, Polly want a Cracker?

Amerika should never have had Bill Clinton assign Eric Holder to the Position of Atty General for the administration of the Mannequin-in-Chief........Eric Holder is 1/2 a degree different tham Marrion Berry of DC......

Worse than Incompetent, Mr Holder is Stupid....a good fit for the Demokrat Power Brokers.....but awful for citizens of a country that voluntarily live under the Laws of the US COnstitution.
