Yesterday, a federal judge “ordered the Department of Justice to turn over the Fast and Furious documents President Barack Obama has been protecting with executive privilege.” The Daily Caller,
“U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson gave the department until Oct. 1 to provide the list of documents to Congress, The Washington Post reports. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hopes the documents explain why the Justice Department refused to acknowledge the failed Fast and Furious operation for almost a year.
“Obama has invoked executive privilege in an attempt to protect the documents, and the Justice Department has said the documents should not be released.
“In the operation, federal agents allowed the illegal purchase of weapon in an effort to track down high-level arms traffickers, but lost track of about 2,000 guns. The operation came to light in 2010 after two of the guns were found on the scene where border agent Brian Terry was killed.”
