Something we can actually thank Reagan for. LOL

Washington (CNN) -- The White House and the Justice Department made clear Friday what had been expected all along: Attorney General Eric Holder will not face criminal prosecution under the contempt of Congress citation passed by the U.S. House.


Legal experts noted this week in the runup to Thursday's House vote that President Barack Obama's assertion of executive privilege in the case would prevent a criminal prosecution under a practice dating to the Reagan administration.

 heck I knew that and they knew that before the vote of contempt.    

Bush's "de-Bathification program" eliminated all vestiges of Sunni power in Iraqi society and set the stage for the Sunni insurrection against American occupation and the new Shiite-led government. Bush disbanded the entire Sunni-dominated Iraqi Army and bureaucracy. He didn't change it. He didn't make it more inclusive of Shiites and Kurds. He just disbanded it. It is no accident that two of the top commanders of today's ISIL are former commanders in the Saddam-era Iraqi military.

I have posted before the  fast and furious hearings and indictment will come back to bite the  Republicans in the behind.  GW Bush and Ronald Reagan both refused to prosecute officials for not talking to congress on the ground of Executive privilege.


 It is very clear that F&F was a GW Bush era operation that went south, both geographically and  figuratively . Obama and  Holder stopped it,

I'm not interested in prosecuting that joke of an AG, he's leaving with Barry in January of next year.

Anyone with any grasp of the situation knew it. Its a purely political move.

Not too likely at this point. Things may change though.

This was never about a prosecution, it was about bringing injustice to light. The American people know Holder is lying. He lied before, and he is still doing it. The people should know something like that. Now Obama has tied his name to Holder's, and gives Romney another piece of ammunition. That is called a win/win situation.

Anyone with a grasp of the situation knows that they already caught Holder in a lie, and now he is hiding behind the president to cover up an even worse lie, namely that he was intimately involved with fast and furious from the jump.

Yep and I don't have a problem with Obama doing so. The problem is that Obama on multiple occassions condemned and criticized Bush for using executive privelege and hiding behind it when things got rough. Being a hypocrit will hurt Obama.
