Obama’s use of executive privilege
It’s being observed by Drugs and Other Things that Karl Rove’s complaints about the use of executive privilege seem hypocritical. A couple of observations.
1. I see your hypocrisy and I raise you Obama’s view:
2. Executive privilege shouldn’t be used to protect a known crime, perjury:
Holder has already demonstrably lied to Congress on several occasions, most recently when he claimed that emails dating from October 2010 which referred to “Fast and Furious” did not refer to Operation Fast and Furious but to another program called “Wide Receiver”. In reality, the emails referred to both programs, proving that Holder was being deceptive.
As we have exhaustively documented, the whole argument surrounding what Holder knew and when he knew it is largely a smokescreen to hide the explosive probability that Fast and Furious was deliberately designed as an effort to demonize gun ownership in the United States and introduce Second Amendment-gutting legislation.
I’ll be curious to see if Drugs And Other Things is willing to accept Holder’s perjury as acceptable.
