Daily Caller continues trying to get on Eric Holder’s naughty list

Oh, will these tiresome journalists ever stop printing facts and seeking the truth?

A largely overlooked exchange from Thursday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing includes what appears to be an admission from Attorney General Eric Holder that emails to and from him about Operation Fast and Furious may exist, and that he’s refusing to provide them to Congress.

The possibility was first addressed during an exchange with House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, who also sits on the House Judiciary Committee, early in the hearing.

Holder’s emails cannot be protected by executive privilege, and the Attorney General could find himself in contempt of Congress or ever more likely, an impeachment process that would lay bare the inner workings of Operation Fast and Furious and finally proven answers to such basic questions as who came up with the Operation, who approved it, and how far up the executive branch chain of command the plot went.
