The House Oversight Committee, headed by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA (There are some of us left)), has filed a civil suit against Attorney General Eric Holder to force release of subpoenaed documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal that the DoJ is refusing to turn over, claiming executive privilege.
Now, you may think what we’re seeing is a constitutional clash between equal branches of the government, each trying to assert its independence from the other. Or maybe you think this is a valiant effort to get at the truth that’s being blocked by a near-criminal Attorney General and his “Chicago Way” president. (1)
Don’t be silly, silly. It’s all about suppressing minority voters.
No, really. Nancy said so:
Democratic lawmakers blasted the filing of a federal lawsuit against Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi charging that the effort is an attempt to suppress voter rights.
“This partisan lawsuit wastes taxpayer dollars and resources, and is a distraction from the urgent business before Congress: acting to create jobs and grow our economy,” she said in a statement. “It is also designed to distract the Justice Department from its critical job of challenging state laws designed to restrict the rights of Americans to vote.”
So, there you go. Yet another example of “Democrats think you’re so stupid and gullible, they can say anything and you’ll believe it.” Because everything is racism.
Really, there has to be someone left among Democrats who’s embarrassed by this moron.
