BREAKING: Judge rejects Obama's executive privilege claim over Fast and Furious records

A federal judge has rejected President Barack Obama's assertion of executive privilege to deny Congress access to records pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, a gunrunning probe that allegedly allowed thousands of weapons to flow across the border into Mexico.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Tuesday that the Justice Department's public disclosures about its response to the so-called "gun walking" controversy undercut Obama's executive privilege claim.

"There is no need to balance the need against the impact that the revelation of any record could have on candor in future executive decision making, since any harm that might flow from the public revelation of the deliberations at issue here has already been self-inflicted," Jackson wrote. "The Department itself has already publicly revealed the sum and substance of the very material it is now seeking to withhold. Since any harm that would flow from the disclosures sought here would be merely incremental, the records must be produced."

So reading this it looks like the Obama administration is trying to say that revealing the documents would make them look bad. His whole crew thinks they are above the law.

Two sets of laws.
"we, the people" go to prison for distributing ONE gun that is used to kill someone (accessory to murder). if that gun is used to kill a federal police officer, then "we, the people" might get the death penalty.
Our "leaders" distribute hundreds of weapons to known criminals (!?) and at least (at least!) one gun was used to kill a police officer.
They keep their job and their freedom. With a pension.
And you just can't stop cheering.......

As if Obama and Holder give a rat's haunch what the courts think.

It's time for both executive privilege and orders be revisited by the courts. It has become abused with this administration more so than any other administration - it must be ceased.

5:38 Imclain is 100% correct. Obama & Holder been hiding the evidence of the Operation Fast&Furious for years, and there is Reason for that. Just like Clinton & Obama been hiding evidence from Benghazi Attack for years, there is a Reason for that. Just like Obama's been hiding their personal files for 8 years away from public, there is a Reason for that. Ever seen a single picture of Michelle Obama ever being pregnant? No. And there is a Reason for that. Most Transparently Crooked Administration in history of US of A.
Keep Cheering, Sheeple.
