After months of stonewalling by corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder, President Obama will use executive privilege to withhold subpoenaed documents pertaining to Fast and Furious, the deadly federal operation that allowed firearms to pass into the hands of Mexican criminals.

Does the president’s invocation of executive privilege imply that he was directly involved in the requested communications?  Republican members of the Oversight Committee suggested that possibility at this morning’s hearing.

Judge Andrew Napolitano says the claim of executive privilege is specific to communications with the president.

The letter sent by Eric Holder requesting executive privilege does not detail a discussion with the president, but Judge Napolitano said, “The implication is there.”

“If the attorney general sat down and discussed it with the president, he probably doesn’t want the Congress and the public to know that,” Napolitano said.

He added, “If the president was not personally involved, executive privilege doesn’t apply.”

Jake Tapper of ABC News disagrees.

Hmm. Any constitutional lawyers want to weigh in?

Either way, the Obama administration may not have the option of withholding the documents.
