What did Obama know and when did he know it as it pertains to Fast and Furious?
office suggested Obama's assertion of executive privilege indicates
that the president himself may have known about Fast and Furious,
because the privilege applies only when the president has direct
involvement in the matter. Obama has denied knowing about the operation,
in which U.S. agents allowed thousands of guns to be sold across the
Boehner's office noted that the courts could still reject Obama's assertion of privilege.
"The White House spinners face a difficult choice," a Boehner aide said. "Either this privilege claim
is a specious political stunt that the courts will reject, or top White
House aides were involved either in Fast and Furious itself or the
cover-up. Not a good choice."
