Belatedly Released and Revealing Fast & Furious Docs

Sharyl Attkisson details the Fast and Furious documents Judicial Watch obtained after filing a FOIA lawsuit against the Department of Justice. Most of the obtained documents are heavily redacted, yet many documents have yet to be released by this executive agency. In addition, reviews of these obtained documents show President Obama had no legitimate basis for invoking executive privilege over them in the first place. Read more details about this enormous trove of Fast and Furious documents here.

This powerful, truthful quote from Attkisson, as cited in the article, highlights why President Obama exerted executive privilege over these documents:

Clues as to why President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder kept the public documents secret for so long may be found in one 60-page release examined below. Nearly three years after-the-fact, its news value is diminished. If these documents had been turned over when Congress subpoenaed them or when they were first requested under FOI law, they would have revealed damaging information in the lead-up to President Obama’s re-election in 2012. By exerting executive privilege, the President and Holder kept them hidden until the court challenge forced their release.
