Should the POTUS be allowed to claim Executive Privilege over documents that could potentially (with high probability) incriminate him and those in his inner circle?
No, he ought to depart Washington on a rail.
Stop blaming W.
Stop blaming who?
I'm tired of you people always going after W. He had every right to keep those meetings secret. The American people don't need to know every little detail about what goes on in the Oval Office.
I think maybe you should do a little research before you open an argument. First of all, this is a scandal and the type of information Obama claimed executive privilege on is legally public information.
2nd, Obama claimed EP over personal emails between Eric Holder and his wife talking about Fast and Furious,clearly out of the scope of his executive power.
3rd, this is a congressional/possible criminal investigation of his administration, OBAMA stonewalled by claiming all of the 15,000+ documents that could have either put it to rest or incriminated him and Holder. Doesn't that sound a tad suspicious?
Fact: September a federal judge denied the Executive Privilege, gave the president and Holder until the 28th of October to provide a Vaughn index of the documents. 2 days later, Holder announced his stepping down as attorney general.
They wanted to wait until after the midterms, but the judge denied them due to absolute lack of reason other than political fallout.
Of course not. But he owns the Attorney General.
No. He acts like a dictator.
Wow is right. And Eric holder announced his retirement 2 days after the judges order. Coincidence?
