Governor David Dewhurst after President Obama exerted executive privilege over vital documents surrounding the Fast & Furious debacle commented by saying
President Obamas abuse of power hides the increasingly obvious errors by his Administration from the American people and denies closure for the devastated family of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. I hope the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight & Government Reform Committee votes in favor today of a Contempt of Congress ruling against Attorney General Eric Holder said Dewhurst.President Obama has tragically chosen to continue to hide the truth about the disastrous Operation Fast & Furious. Unfortunately President Obamas decision to hide documents through Executive Privilege is a blatant political attempt to hide damaging information from the American people in order to protect his re-election campaign. I strongly urge Congress to aggressively pursue all of its options to investigate this travesty and hold those responsible to account" Dewhurst said. We need our nations chief executive and highest law enforcement officer to be accountable to the citizens of the United States and stop thwarting efforts to find the truth about this botched operation" said Gov.
