U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement after the White House asserted executive privilege over subpoenaed documents in the Congressional investigation into Operation "Fast and Furious":

"The Attorney General and now the President have refused to turn over documents to investigators and failed to hold anyone accountable for his department's mishandling of Fast and Furious, which lead to the death of Brian Terry.

"Today's vote could have been avoided, but the Attorney General and President Obama's insistence on stonewalling left no other option."
