Issa slams Obama over Fast and Furious executive privilege

(CNN) - The head of a House committee slammed President Barack Obama's assertion of executive privilege in the panel's probe of the Fast and Furious gun running sting and implored the president to rethink his move.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa made the remarks in a letter to the president dated Monday, as the House gets ready to vote this week on a contempt resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder.

    Shouldn't issa be in jail for stealing cars? Only in this congress does a man who is a criminal gets to review others about improprieties!
    That being said, EVERY president, including both #41 and #43, have done it. So did Clinton. The village idiot from TX did it during the outed spy, remember?
    Shouldn't this joke of a man and his cronies be working on those job they promised back in 2010? Just a sidebar for issa, you are NOT as hot as you think you are!

  2. End the Obama Dictatorship in November

    Somebody has to call Obama and Holder on the lawlessness of this adminstration. I applaud Issa for trying to keep this a nation of laws and challenging Obama, the leftist dictator in the Whitehouse.
