Given that Clinton had waived all executive privilege claims, either Holder was not being truthful when he refused to discuss his role in the pardons -- or President Obama did, indeed, make a claim of executive privilege to protect Holder . . . contrary to Jay Carney's assertions that this go-round with the privilege is the Obama White House's first.
Look, any time that isn't spent discussing the abysmal state of the American economy is, in a sense, time wasted for Republicans in terms of the election. But Holder's record is so appalling -- and The White House's claims of executive privilege so specious -- that they simply can't go unchallenged.
