Issa gets slapped. White House invokes executive privilege to prevent O'Reilly from testifying. "Are you gonna do something? Or just stand there and bleed?"

From the Daily Caller -- Chaffetz: White House blocking access to ‘Fast and Furious’ witness who wants to testify.
From Dave Workman -- White House thumbs nose at Grassley, Issa over F&F request.
Johnny Tyler: Listen mister, I'm getting awful tired of your...
[Wyatt slaps him]
Wyatt Earp: Are you gonna do something? Or just stand there and bleed?
Tombstone, 1993.

Since the Whitehouse wants to block the testimony there is obviously something the O'Bummer administration wants to hide. Definitely does NOT pass the smell test and the stench goes all the way to the Prez. Time for him to GO.

I think we should all send Rep. Issa a handkerchief to catch the blood. If he had an ex-girlfriend attack I doubt there'd be anything for her to rip off.

"Tombstone" is one of my favorite westerns. There were 2 films about Wyatt Earp that came out around the same time. "Tombstone" with Kirk Russell and "Wyatt Earp" with Kevin Costner. Both had GREAT performances from their "Doc Holliday"; Val Kilmer with Russell and Dennis Quaid with Costner. Kurt Russell's mustache was light years better than Costner's feeble patch and Russell had a look that could freeze your soul. You gotta see the film to appreciate it.

This so called investigation is amateur at best. Get an indictment against someone lower on the ladder, Bill Newell would do, but I'd prefer Hope MacAllister. Then, it's Monty Hall time. The prospect of doing some prison time has a way of lubricating a criminal's jaws. No deals unless the information produces significant results. I have to believe Issa already knows this, but is dragging his feet for reasons not shared with the unwashed masses. He doesn't want to know what I really think of him!

Concur, the indictments need to start, THEN people will start talking.

As long as Holder controls the Justice Dept. there will be no indictments.

"As long as Holder controls the Justice Dept. there will be no indictments."

Harp1034, you left off "in federal courts." Crimes were committed in several states: Arizona, California, Texas, New Mexico, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, and a few states in Mexico.

Sooner or later, someone in one of those states is going to file some charges and seal the indictments until the baddies are within reach of a friendly sheriff or local cop who's about to retire.

Surely one of those ATF dipsticks is in an area Holder can't reach.

Grand jury indictments are a lot easier to come by than are prosecutions. Most, if not all, County and District courts receive some form of federal funding. Threats to withdraw that funding are extremely effective in squelching prosecutions. I speak from experience and personal observation.
