Miller Statement on President Obama's Assertion of Executive Privilege

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

"I am disappointed at the President's decision to invoke executive privilege to try to protect the Justice Department from releasing documents related to the "Fast and Furious' operation. This is yet another extraordinary power grab by the Executive Branch. For months the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has been seeking documents related to the Justice Department's "Fast and Furious' operation, only to be stonewalled at every turn. Instead of working with Congress to resolve the issue, Attorney General Eric Holder continues to refuse to provide these documents.

With this 11th hour assertion of executive privilege, the Administration is clearly engaged in a cover-up over the "Fast and Furious' debacle. I join my colleagues in demanding that President Obama instruct Attorney General Holder to immediately turn over the documents requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, instead of playing politics and hiding the truth."
