Statement from Congressman Poe on Fast and Furious Update

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

It has been eighteen months since the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the Attorney General claims he still doesn't know who authorized the reckless and deadly Operation Fast and Furious. He maintains that it wasn't him. But he still won't produce the documents to Congress to prove it.

President Obama, noticeably silent about Operation Fast and Furious all along has claimed that he was never aware or involved. But in an eleventh hour maneuver just minutes before Congress began the process to hold the Attorney General in Contempt of Congress, President Obama, leader of the self-proclaimed "most transparent Administration in history", asserted his Executive Privilege to withhold documents from Congress.

Why is the President keeping documents from Congress and the American people he supposedly never saw?
