    Pathetic last resort. Obvious cover up is blatantly obvious. They didn't even leave themselves enough time to sugar coat this one, it screams cover up.

    THis is rediculous The only difference between what we are going through now and Nixon is the press is up Obummers butt. Well now they have no excuse from covering this, Obummer is dead meat and he knows it.

    Good

    And everybody knows it, The Supreme Court already gave the rules and this goes not fall within them. Just like his Usurping the Immigration Laws to glean votes.

    I do not think its use fits this situation. But I am not legal scholar.

    we have a dead agent , three out of control operations that put US citizens at risk and today Obama made what may be the biggest bone head mistake of his short and disastrous political career ...if he had a brain he would have cut Holder lose , but he didn't and now we are all free to demand answers and question his direct involvement !
    Good- riddance to bad rubbish ! By-By Obama (if that was ever even your real name) LOL

    Maybe and I'm just spitballing here but just maybe Holder the way he's playing this would squeal to the ceiling if Obummer tried to hang him with all this alone and maybe a couple of security leaks just for fun!!!!

    U.S. v Nixon established that executive privilege does not apply in criminal matters. Of course, getting the AG to admit his criminal acts (or that criminal acts were committed by those under his direct supervision) is the problem, isn't it?

    Unless o-bamboozler has something to hide theies no reason for him to get involved. So he's probably guilty of something in this fiasco and the EP proves it.

    Clinton: invoked Executive Priviledge 14 times in 8 years. G.W.Bush: invoked Executive Priviledge 8 times in 8 years. Seems to be a normal past-practice.

    ...now, honestly, Franklin...why would I take your word for it that G.W. was not up to his earlobes in monkey business that required him to invoke Exec. Privileges 8 times? (You knucklehead Conservatives are as desperate as a box of fudgesickles in a power outage. ; )

    your the one saying things you will be 100% against as soon as its not "Obama" doing them . You tell me when did President George W Bush use EP and why ...you don't know do you ! His worst abuse of it was to cover for illegal campaign contributions in 2000 to Al Gore that would have put Bill Clinton on trial . The biggest problem that President Bush ever had was being far to nice a guy and way to dam liberal -

    GASP! COVER ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS TO AL GORE?? SAY IT ISN"T SO!...*..wipes a tear from her eye...* Relax Franklin. You're gonna give yourself a stroke getting all fluffed up like a hen protecting her chicks from that dasterdly fox=Me? I'm harmless.

    ...whatever, Drue...I could say the same about my nephew dying in Iraq..It's just too easy to point the finger and get all huffed up and sanctimonious over these invokings of Exec. Priviledges when, in fact, none of us here on SH Really Have the inside scivvy on why it Really was done. We, none of us, should be going on the musings of political bloggers and supposed insiders as fact. Even the biggest news sources are given to 'creative writing' from time to time when reporting these happenings.

    Remember the President said he had no knowledge of what goes on in his administration, so why can he expect to invoke Executive Privilege? Obviously he has something to hide!
