A federal court has ruled that the Obama Department of Justice must turn over to the non-profit watchdog group Judicial Watch an index of materials related to the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal that were withheld by the White House under executive privilege claims.

Judicial Watch sued because the government didn’t respond to its Freedom of Information Act requests in June and September of 2012.

The ruling by Judge John D. Bates of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia forces the Obama DOJ, for the first time, to provide a Vaughn Index, a detailed listing of all documents that it has withheld from Congress about the scandal along with justification for each withholding.

“Once again, Judicial Watch has beat Congress to the punch in getting key information about another Obama scandal – this time, the Fast and Furious outrage,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Fitton said the information could, for the first time, provide specific details about “who in the administration is responsible for Fast and Furious lies to Congress and the American people.”

    Could we just turn Holder over to the cartels and tell them that Holder was the one that set them up, and then maybe we would get the true story.

      I doubt they would have him, to sneaky even for them. Even sneaks need to be able to trust their own.

    Hopefully in these Documents We will finally discover Obumer’s reason to claim Presidential Privilege. Obumer and Erick Holder’s desire to Prove Our Guns were Responsible for all the Poor Mexican Death’s were Our Fault. May I Point Out IS Our Fault because Republicans did not Vet this Criminal called Barrack Hussein Obama a Man With Out a Real Birth Certificate. All He Has is a PDF File On Record Protected by the Democrat Party!!!!! This Was Obumer’s and Erik Holders Design for GUN Control!!!!!

    Great- so far. Now to try for treason and do what the law demands. Both Holder and the white kenyan. Isaiah 9:10. Peace,

    How about the contacts between DOJ, BATFE, and the staff at Government Executive (GE) magazine? The December issue had a big story about the “Gun Problem” on our southern border that was published about two months before Fast & Furious exploded on the public scene. This was an obvious “prep” story to get people tuned into gun control. Questions: 1. Who initiated the story? 2. When did they go over the details? 3. Were there internal (within the government) messages about the story? 4. Who organized the photo-layouts including Govt Furnished Equipment (GFE) such as those scary looking guns? Remember, the lead time for a glossy publication like GE is on the order of three to four months with some stories taking longer. Therefore, some people were in loop at least as early as August 2009.
