    As I understand it the argument presented by Holder has been he and his Justice Department knew nothing about Fast and Furious.

    If that is true then how does releasing documents to prove it involve Executive Privilege? If as claimed no one at Justice knew about the Program then how does releasing documents to prove that jeopardize confidential communications or decisions between the Executive?

    The entire argument by the White House and justice is they did NOT KNOW. If true then no records they have can implicate them and thus can not implicate executive decisions or policies.

    This thread is a prime example of why old threads need to be archived.

    Irrelevant to a 5 year old thread being bumped solely for trolling purposes. There is LITERALLY NO REASON TO REVIVE THIS OLD SHIT when we have plenty to talk about with current events.

    On that we can agree.

    This looks like nothing more than an attempt to change the subject to me. Democrats are falling flat on their face. We need to let that sink in rather than flip the script
