Good question. CNN's John King recently interviewed House Oversight Committee ranking member Elijah Cummings about Attorney General Eric Holder's conflicting testimony regarding when he first knew about Operation Fast and Furious. After a subpoena was issued Wednesday to Holder from Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa, Cummings came out in a full court defense of Holder, calling the move "a political stunt" and "deep-sea fishing."

In the interview with Cummings, King shows a clip of stumbling President Obama trying to explain who knew about Fast and Furious and when. The problem? Obama gave the interview in March 2011 and Holder testified before Congress on May 2, 2011 that he had only known about Fast and Furious for a "few weeks."

Freudian slip?
