THE SLIPPERY SLOPE OF EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE

I have not paid very much attention to the entire Operation Fast & Furious gunwalking scandal that has been going on for what seems like a decade. This issue as I saw it was nothing more than a scratching post for the claws of conservative blog readers. Though it is a tragedy of incompetence for Attorney general Eric Holder, a favorite target of conservatives, until this morning I did not see this case as a matter that could bring down a presidency.

President Obama’s decision to invoke executive privilege in the case of documents AG Holder does not wish to submit to congressional review is at best a political blunder and at worst the tip of an iceberg of cover up. One invokes this privilege for only one of three reasons. First to protect the Executive branch from embarassment. Two, to protect the Executive Branch from civil or criminal action. And finally, three, to do both of the aforementioned things.

While I am certain that despite the outcome of the November elections in the United States Eric Holder will no longer be the AG in late January 2013 no observer of this administration with any reason could accept that this will be a permanent stain and a scandal that could gain traction within the MSM causing irreparable damage to Obama’s hopes for re-election.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
