    Finally, a clear, justifiable case for impeachment.

    Give Obama the Gaddafi treatment!

    I don't believe in "executive privilege." The whole idea is un-democratic and un-American in concept and against the principles this nation was founded on...

    it also goes against the Peoples RIGHT to know what the FED is up to at all times.

    the nation turned out and showed that they still love him when he passed away ! there is something to be said about doing the wrong thing for all the right reasons / Obama is not so lucky and his motives are far from as pure
    "Mexico-Gate" will be a big part of his down fall-

    I sincerely hope so, but so far, he and the rotten press corps are acting as if he has the divine right of kings on this.

    the true irony is that Nixon was not wrong when he thought the DNC was meeting with the KGB ...he just went about exposing them the wrong way and underestimated how deep the roots where - no such luck with "Mexico-gate" !

    0bama claiming Executive Privilege means he was involved.

    Unless, the president was involved in the discussions about the Fast and Furious, according to Judge Andrew Napolitano. Here are some quotes and a link:

    "Executive privilege protects communications with the president, the human being of the president, not with people that work for him and the Justice Department," Judge Andrew Napolitano said on FOX News today.

    "If the attorney general sat down and discussed it with the president, he probably doesn't want the Congress and the public to know that, because we know of the awful events that occurred as a result of the Fast and Furious escapade. But we also know that executive privilege only pertains to military, diplomatic, and sensitive national security matters. Now, was fighting the drug gangs at the border a sensitive national security matter? And, if so, was the President of the United States of America personally involved in making decisions as to how to conduct that fight? If that's the case, this has reached a different level and we now know why the attorney general has ferociously defended these documents," he said.

    But it shouldn't apply to anything of the sort:

    Executive Privilege: Wikipedia Excerpt - "In the United States government, executive privilege is the power claimed by the President of the United States and other members of the executive branch to resist certain subpoenas and other interventions by the legislative and judicial branches of government. The concept of executive privilege is not mentioned explicitly in the United States Constitution, but the Supreme Court of the United States ruled it to be an element of the separation of powers doctrine, and/or derived from the supremacy of executive branch in its own area of Constitutional activity." --In other words, it is not constitutional. Nor was it made law.

    It cannot apply if the documents show that the putative President was engaged, not in any genuine protection of the southern border, but instead in sending "throw-down weapons" south of the border so that he could call for more gun control.
