Obama Enters the Fray UPDATE

Eric Holder, who has steadfastly delayed or refused to turn over documents pertaining to the "Fast and Furious Scandal" has asked Obama to grant executive privilege. One hopes they find him in contempt still.

From FOX News:
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead Wednesday morning with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway.

If the vote proceeds, Republicans have more than enough votes on committee to pass the resolution. However, Holder would not be considered held in contempt of Congress unless and until the full House approves the measure.
We need to know why Border Patrol agent Brian Terry died, as well as hundreds of Mexican citizens.

Update 1: If Obama is involved, then Obama's INVOLVED!

Senator Chuck Grassley, via The Des Moines Register:
"How can the President assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement? How can the President exert executive privilege over documents he's supposedly never seen? Is something very big being hidden to go to this extreme?"

Update 2: Apparently, it's okay to use executive privilege unless it's a Republican.
