156. Reuters: Wire-tap argument a red herring

 

Reuters today:

M - You said wire taps would be illegal to turn over.

I said: But wire taps is just a subset.

Are you suggesting that ALL DOCUMENTS POST FEB 4 2011 - in other words, all documents in the past 15 months, are IRRELEVANT to an investigation?

Seems odd.

Here's Reuters: (Chicago Tribune)
The White House executive privilege claim has put all post-February 4, 2011 documents off limits. Republicans argue they need those emails and other correspondence to corroborate Melson's testimony and determine who at Justice saw them

And to me, the below seems reasonable, given that there have been multiple statements retracted that are hard to call 'inadvertently made statements'
Democrats complain that Issa has shifted his focus from investigating how Fast and Furious went wrong to a look into how the Justice Department has communicated with Congress.

I don't care who's Republican or Democrat or Libertarian or Socialist or Monarchist. I care about the facts. They don't add up.
