Obama’s desperate use of executive privilege to save Eric Withholder from having to turn over incriminating Fast & Furious documents doesn’t just remove the firewall between the Manchurian Moonbat and his skeevy Attorney General. It directly implicates Obama himself in the F&F gunrunning fiasco that has cost Americans their lives. From a Congressional Research Service Report for Congress entitled “Presidential Claims of Executive Privilege: History, Law, Practice and Recent Developments” [PDF]:
The Nixon and post-Watergate cases established the broad contours of the presidential communications privilege. Under those precedents, the privilege, which is constitutionally rooted, could be invoked by the President when asked to produce documents or other materials or information that reflect presidential decisionmaking and deliberations that he believes should remain confidential.
That is, Obama is effectively confessing that the gunrunning operation that deliberately armed extremely dangerous Mexican drug cartels, evidently to generate bad press for the Second Amendment, and that has resulted in the deaths of American agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata, was a result of his own “decisionmaking and deliberations.”
The media has its work cut out, being tasked with preventing the American people from hounding this punk out of office before his reelection can be engineered.
