DOJ won't prosecute Holder

In a move to surprise no one. The DOJ has exerted it's privilege to not bring their boss before a Grand Jury and force him to face the charges of lying to Congress. Since Obama implemented Executive Privilege on the documents for Fast and Furious, Deputy Attorney General James Cole has said that no laws were broken.

So now we get to see just how this falls out politically. Darrel Issa already has backup plans in place. We're going to court again folks.

Issa, R-Calif., had acknowledged Thursday night that it was "very possible" the president would instruct the U.S. attorney not to prosecute Holder. He indicated Republicans would use the civil courts to get what they want. 
"The House has authorized me to hire staff and legal staff who can pursue civilly through the courts to try to get a federal judge to order, separately, this discovery," he said. 

Well at least we have that sure thing in the court system to work for us. Oh wait. So lets see how long until a court date is set, hearings held, trial done, verdict rendered? 

But lets be honest here. We don't necessarily need the verdict, we just need enough info to get out that we can hang Eric Holder around Barack Obama's neck come Nov. Then we can really move forward and make sure that anyone that had any hand in this monstrosity of ignorance is held accountable.

Read the full letter here.

Quick thing though, Executive privilege is suppose to cover the president and communications that he could be involved in to determine policy and such forth, so when James Cole talks about the WHITE HOUSE employees that were protected by Executive Privilege by the Bush Administration that were not prosecuted by the DOJ at the time we are talking about a completely different set of circumstances. 

One group worked directly for the President (Bush), one group has repeatedly said that the President had nothing to do with it and involves employees of the DOJ.
