Constitutional Confrontation: Contempt of Congress vs. Executive Privilege

20 Jun

Today, just prior to the hearing and vote on whether to charge Attorney General Eric Holder with Contempt of Congress for withholding documents that had been under subpoeana for well over a year, the President just invoked Executive Privilege over those documents.

This is looking familiar.


The cover up is often worse than the crime

So, we have a dead border agent as the result of actions taken at a level that appears to originate from the very top, otherwise this Executive Privilege decree would not have been invoked. Executive Privilege did not work during Watergate, but it may work here because this lawless president simply ignores the other branches of government when they displease His Royal Highness.

Remember when Mark Levin used to call candidate Obama, Barack Milhouse Obama when his opponent objected to us using his full name? How precient, Dr. Levin.

    Methinks that there is skunk in White House….

    House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, raised another question after the president invoked the privilege.

    “Until now, everyone believed that the decisions regarding ‘Fast and Furious’ were confined to the Department of Justice. The White House decision to invoke executive privilege implies that White House officials were either involved in the ‘Fast and Furious’ operation or the cover-up that followed,” said Boehner’s press secretary Brendan Buck. “The administration has always insisted that wasn’t the case. Were they lying, or are they now bending the law to hide the truth?”

      Yes, they were lying, and yes they are now bending the law to hide the truth. How can you tell Obama is lying? His lips are moving.
