Issa admits not a single bit of evidence White House involved with Fast & Furious…

But the second Obama invoked executive privilege to keep Issa from demanding yet even more documents after getting everything on the actual operation, the rightwing conspiracy theorists had all they needed.

Which, I imagine, is the intended effect of Issa’s demand. Either he gets full license to pore over every single burp and fart in the WH records to look for a scandal, or he runs into a roadblock and the base goes crazy.

Because you go ahead and advise skepticism to people who still think Obama is a Kenyan-born Muslim.


UPDATE: Now Issa admits he isn’t even suspicious that Holder knew about the operation.

    The President can’t have it both ways, he can’t say he didn’t have anything to do with Fast and Furious and then claim executive priviledge. The Justice Department has claimed that the documents sought by Issa’s Oversight & Gov. Reform Committee do not implicate the White House. Then why the need for executive priviledge?

    Have you actually read Issa’s letter to the President or are you just content to spew liberal talking points?

    From the letter:
    “In his letter, the Attorney General stated that releasing the documents covered by the subpoena, some of which he offered to the Committee hours earlier, would have “significant, damaging consequences.” [1] It remains unclear how – in a matter of hours – the Attorney General moved from offering those documents in exchange for canceling the contempt vote and ending the congressional investigation to claiming that they are covered by executive privilege and that releasing them – which the Attorney General was prepared to do hours earlier – would now result in “significant, damaging consequences.”

    Ah, how rightwingers love to make up new rules we must follow. Obama doesn’t have to be directly involved to invoke executive privilege because, whatever its merits, it involves the executive branch. He says it impacts ongoing investigations.

    “…he can’t say he didn’t have anything to do with Fast and Furious and then…”

    Rightwingers and their reading problems. Read it again: Issa says Obama doesn’t have anything to do with F&F as far as he knows.

    Regarding Issa’s letter, is he suggesting that even handing over the requested documents would not be enough to derail a contempt vote? If not, then what part of Issa’s investigation isn’t a witch hunt? The letter just as equally implies Holder didn’t have much to fear from turning over the documents, but Issa tells him he gets nothing for doing so and then is mystified Holder didn’t bend over?

    If Holder is just telling Issa to go fuck himself for shits and giggles, it really doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

    Really, go fuck Issa and his witch hunt. Years of Bush crimes that we’re not supposed to prosecute because “it would divide the nation” but oh, let’s just start investigating the Obama administration until something trashy and easy to smear pops up, eh? We went through this with Solyndra already.

    Btw, I just heard a clip from Fox News that you parroted almost word for word.

    Bottom-feeder. Why don’t you try thinking for yourself, for once?
