Issa Interview After The Contempt Vote

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) was the lead guest on Fox's On the Record with Greta van Sustern last night. He discussed in detail the contempt citation for Attorney General Eric Holder, the executive privilege claim, and other items related to Operation Fast and Furious.

Of note was that Issa was not notified of President Obama's decision to claim executive privilege on the subpoenaed materials until about 10 minutes before the 10am meeting was to begin. It came to him in an 8-page document from the Attorney General's office. As to the claim of executive privilege itself, Issa said the White House was either trying to create an executive privilege that doesn't exist or that has a loosely held meaning.
