HOUNDS STILL ON HOLDER: House Asking Fed Court to Remove Exec Privilege Barrier
Fast & Furious will not go away—because the House Oversight Committee will not be denied. And, so, the legal chess match continues.
After the Department of Justice neutralized the historic contempt-of-Congress charge against Attorney General Eric Holder by refusing to prosecute, the House has now officially filed suit with a federal court.
The suit asks that the court dismantle the White House’s dubious executive privilege claim used to shield Holder in his refusal to turn over specific documents relevant to the investigation.
Available for interviews to discuss the Fast & Furious scandal, what he believes is the Obama administration’s M.O. and why it is stonewalling the investigation so vigorously at this point is Alan Gottlieb, executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF).
In response to these latest developments involving the Committee’s shift to filing a federal lawsuit, Gottlieb’s statement is clear and concise: “No public official is above the law—not even Attorney General Eric Holder.”
Call Special Guests right now for a supercharged interview with the always blunt and articulate Alan Gottlieb.
