Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was interviewed on Fox News this afternoon about the Inspector General's report and the hearings into them. He said the report was fairly good. He attacked the Obama Administration's claim of executive privilege. He noted that there was a lot of stuff covered under executive privilege that wasn't even shared with the DOJ IG even though they are both in the executive branch. However, he said that the IG's report did provide an opening as over 300 pages of documents previously sealed by the claim of executive privilege were used in the production of this report.
Grassley nails Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer over what he knew or should have known of Operation Fast and Furious and is disappointed that the report absolved Breuer.
