This is what makes me believe that Issa has had the info all along but he couldnt just come out and show them...its like getting a spouse to admit they are cheating when all along you have video of the transgression, but you want to see just how far they are willing to continue the lie...this was not a fishing expedition, you dont go this far without having the proof in your chest pocket

What I don't understand is why Holder hasn't found someone he can throw under the bus? Or why hasn't Obama thrown Holder under the bus?
I don't think one can say that this is an electionerring stunt when it started 18 mos ago, and should have been done and over with except for Holder's stonewalling.
So ... I can only imagine that nobody is willing to fall on their sword to save Holder's behind; and Holder isn't willing to fall on his sword to save Obama's tush.
You have a whistle-blower on the operation. You have gun dealer's supporting the whistle-blower's allegations. You have CBS with document leaks that also confirm hanky-panky.
So, what's in those documents that make them a matter of national security? Can't they strike out names to protect cover of field agents, if need be? They sure weren't sensitive about getting a Pakistani doctor thrown in jail.
Buzz, you're a logical person, do you really think there is nothing in all this that smells really, really bad?

Executive Privlage has been used by every president this country has ever had. It has went under several different names, but all the same principle. As for this use it will not stand. Executive Privilege must list the documents being protected, just like lawyers have to, not just a blanket time frame. Secondly it can not be claimed if the president has no knowledge of said documents, which was their position until this morning.
