House Oversight Committee Brings Obstruction Lawsuit Against AG Eric Holder

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has brought a civil lawsuit against Attorney General Eric Holder asking the federal district court in Washington D.C. to reject the Attorney General's assertion of executive privilege in refusing to turn over documents related to the so-called "Fast and Furious" gun walking program.  The lawsuit requests that the court order the Attorney General to comply with the Committee's subpoena and release the documents immediately.
