Barack Hussein Obama filed court papers this week to get the House of Representatives lawsuit against his corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder thrown out.
The House lawsuit asks the court to reject a claim of executive privilege by the President, who sealed thousands of documents relating to Fast & Furious, a Justice Department operation that facilitated the smuggling of thousands of U.S. weapons south of the border.
Obama calls the House lawsuit a mere “political dispute” between the branches of government. But this is much more than a political dispute. People died as a result of Fast Furious, which makes it much worse than even Watergate where no one died. Fast & Furious has led to the deaths of more than 200 Mexicans and at least one U.S. federal agent, though most likely it was two.
Mitt Romney told the American people during the presidential debate this week that Fast & Furious guns were used to kill people on both sides of the border. “They [drug lords] used those weapons against – against their own citizens and killed Americans with them,” Romney said. “And this was a … program of the [U.S.] government.”
Romney then went on to challenge Obama for using executive privilege to cover up the administration’s role in Operation Fast & Furious: “[I]t’s one of the great tragedies related to violence in our society which has occurred during this administration. Which I think the American people would like to understand fully, it’s been investigated to a degree, but [the] administration has carried out executive privilege to prevent all of the information from coming out.”
This was the first time that many Americans heard of Operation Fast and Furious because Obama controls most of the main stream media.
Obama is invoked executive privilege, simply as an attempt to cover up details as to why the U.S. government would help send guns south of the border. Of course, we in the gun-owning community know why. It was an attempt to justify support for new gun regulations.
As stated by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News: “[Justice Department] emails show they discussed using the sales, including [Fast & Furious] sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called ‘Demand Letter 3.’ That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or ‘long guns.’”
In other words, Operation Fast & Furious was intended to help the administration justify calls for a new gun registration scheme, which was eventually implemented (illegally and without Congressional authority) in four southwestern border states.
