Eric Holder Still Trying to Hide "Fast and Furious" Documents

From Red Flag News

One scandal after another.  I submit that if any previous administration even had one of the Obama-Holder-Clinton scandals, then that administration would have been gone - like Nixon.  Instead we have the Obama Administration which gets away with lying to the American people on a daily basis, ruling through executive fiat since most of his radical agenda cannot be enacted through laws,....and surviving scandal after scandal.  There will be another one tomorrow or the next day, I assure you. 

This Red Flag news report is how Obama denied knowing anything about Fast and Furious, yet is able to place his papers and e-mails concerning Fast and Furious under Executive Priviledge, and how Holder is trying to protect this travesty from seeing the light of day.   It is simple:  If Obama knew nothing of Fast and Furious then he would not have any e-mails or correspondance to place under Executive Priviledge! 

Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch. The lawsuit seeks the enforcement of open records requests relating to Operation Fast and Furious, as required by law.

Judicial Watch had filed, on June 22, 2012, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking all documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious and “specifically [a]ll records subject to the claim of executive privilege invoked by President Barack Obama on or about June 20, 2012.”

The administration has refused to comply with Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, and in mid-September the group filed a lawsuit challenging Holder’s denial. That lawsuit remains ongoing but within the past week President Barack Obama’s administration filed what’s called a “motion to stay” the suit. Such a motion is something that if granted would delay the lawsuit indefinitely.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said that Holder’s and Obama’s desire to continually hide these Fast and Furious documents is “ironic” now that they’re so gung-ho on gun control. “It is beyond ironic that the Obama administration has initiated an anti-gun violence push as it seeking to keep secret key documents about its very own Fast and Furious gun walking scandal,” Fitton said in a statement. “Getting beyond the Obama administration’s smokescreen, this lawsuit is about a very simple principle: the public’s right to know the full truth about an egregious political scandal that led to the death of at least one American and countless others in Mexico. The American people are sick and tired of the Obama administration trying to rewrite FOIA law to protect this president and his appointees. Americans want answers about Fast and Furious killings and lies.”
