Darrell Issa Writes Obama: Anyone at the White House involved

In the 7-page letter dated June 25, Issa writes that the highest courts in the country have held that the assertion of the constitutionally-based executive privilege “is only applicable with respect to documents and communications that implicate the confidentiality of the President’s decision-making process, defined as those documents and communications to and from the President and his most senior advisors.”

Issa, R-Calif., then questions Obama whether Attorney General Eric Holder or anyone at the White House was involved in a cover-up.

“Your privilege assertion means one of two things,” he writes. “Either you or your most senior advisors were involved in managing Operation Fast & Furious and the fallout from it, including the false February 4, 2011 letter provided by the Attorney General to the Committee, or, you are asserting a Presidential power that you know to be unjustified solely for the purpose of further obstructing a congressional investigation.”
