cry baby liberals on Eric Holder

I wonder why these crybaby liberals are so quiet about Obama and Eric Holder trying to cover up crime when they still whine today about Bush, Rove, Chenney and others? This is part of a letter sent to Obama on the 25th. Their silence is deafening.
Fast and furious letter to Obama from Issa
June 25, 2012The President The White House Washington, D.C. 20500Dear Mr. President: On June 19, 2012, shortly after leaving a meeting in the U.S. Capitol, Attorney General Eric Holder wrote to request that you assert executive privilege with respect to Operation Fast and Furious documents he is withholding from this Committee. The next day, Deputy Attorney General James Cole notified me in a letter that you had invoked executive privilege. The Committee received both letters minutes before the scheduled start of a vote to recommend that the full House hold the Attorney General in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with its subpoena. Courts have consistently held that the assertion of the constitutionally-based executive privilege — the only privilege that ever can justify the withholding of documents from a congressional committee by the Executive Branch — is only applicable with respect to documents and communications that implicate the confidentiality of the President’s decision-making process, defined as those documents and communications to and from the President and his most senior advisors. Even then, it is a qualified privilege that is overcome by a showing of the committee’s need for the documents. The letters from Messrs. Holder and Cole cited no case law to the contrary. Accordingly, your privilege assertion means one of two things. Either you or your most senior advisors were involved in managing Operation Fast & Furious and the fallout from it, including the false February 4, 2011 letter provided by the Attorney General to the Committee, or, you are asserting a Presidential power that you know to be unjustified solely for the purpose of further obstructing a congressional investigation. To date, the White House has steadfastly maintained that it has not had any role in advising the Department with respect to the
The President June 25, 2012Page 2congressional investigation. The surprising assertion of executive privilege raised the question of whether that is still the case. As you know, the Committee voted to recommend that the full House hold Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress for his continued refusal to produce relevant documents in the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious. Last week’s proceeding would not have occurred had the Attorney General actually produced the subpoenaed documents he said he could provide. The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the contempt resolution this week. I remain hopeful that the Attorney General will produce the specified documents so that we can work towards resolving this matter short of a contempt citation. Furthermore, I am hopeful that, consistent with assertions of executive privilege by previous Administrations, you will define the universe of documents over which you asserted executive privilege and provide the Committee with the legal justification from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC).

Because most of America has something to hide, the 'vote' and uphold criminality to appease their guilt.
BTW. Can't WAIT till the verdict is in tomorrow, though I have no fear withholder will ever serve time. What I CAN lavish, is that 'it' is the first DA to have EVER been held in contempt. Wall of DA shame. Assh____
Give and Assh___ a bit of power and they lose their mind. I've known that for decades. It takes a REAL man to resist the narcissism of power. Holder loses, IMO, like most.
