Republicans to challenge Obama’s Executive Privilege on Fast and Furious in civil court
It’s about time the Republicans grow a spine. Much to the chagrin of ABC, House Speaker John Boehern said that Republicans are preparing to file a civil suit in an attempt to gain access to to the documents in the botched Fast and Furious operation that Eric Holder and Obama are hiding.
The planned civil suit, which comes on the heels of a letter sent by the Justice Department stating that the DOJ would not prosecute Attorney General Eric Holder following a House vote to hold him in criminal contempt of Congress.
“It’s not clear to me that the U.S. District Attorney will in fact, go down that path. That’s why we’re going to file, in District Court, a civil suit, over the issue of executive privilege,” Boehner said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
