WND's Farah: Obama Now An 'Accessory to Murder'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah writes in his June 20 WorldNetDaily column:

When Barack Obama claimed executive privilege today in an effort to protect Attorney General Eric Holder from a contempt-of-Congress charge in the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal, he may have inadvertently exposed himself as an accessory to murder.

[...]

Obama cannot claim executive privilege for any member of his administration. He can only do so for himself and his inner circle of advisers, and should never do so unless it’s a matter of national security.

What Obama did, in apparent desperation, was to expose his own personal complicity in this scandal, making him, quite possibly, an accessory to murder.

Can you imagine how big this scandal is and how far it reaches for the administration to take such a gamble?

 [...]

Obama is going down for this – whether it’s in the election in November or before. Democrats should start deciding now if they want to go down with him or stand up for principle as many Republicans did during the darkest days of Watergate.

Farah has already accused Obama of deicide, so this is actually a step down for him. Besides, as Media Matters points out, Farah is misreading Obama's declaration of executive privilege.

So deranged Obama-hater Farah is not just hyperbolic, he's wrong. Anyone surprised?
