if they are that egregious on lying on that issue, what else are they lying about? good night. >> andrea: this is a fox news alert. furious showdown, executive order from the president and historic vote on capitol hill today. after the nation's attorney general failed to deliver crucial documents to congress on operation "fast and furious." hello, everyone. i'm andrea tantaros. this is "the five." moments ago, a house committee voted to hold eric holder in contempt of congress. it came after 48 hours of political fireworks and year-and-a-half after two border patrol agents were murdered with guns, allowed over the border by the u.s. government. the vote comes after president obama issued executive order to withhold the documents lawmakers were seeking from holder regarding operation "fast and furious." take a listen to some of what
2:01 pm
went on today on capitol hill. >> the department of justice fought the committee's investigation every step of the way. >> the attorney general has been stonewalling this committee. >> what could be so damning in the documents they can't be given to us? >> why is it that president obama is suddenly invoking executive privilege on documents that we were told yesterday would be glad to give to us? >> for the past year, we've been holding the attorney general to an impossible standard. >> this activity went on under both administrations. it shouldn't be a political witch hunt. >> holding the attorney general in contempt is the only way to send a strong message. to this administration, and future ones that no one is above the law. >> andrea: that was a party line vote today. 23-17. found in contempt. we learn now that the vote will be a full house vote next week. we don't know the date. but big implications for white house, especially after holder said i'll give you the
2:02 pm
documents. he then said no, and obama says all right, executive privilege. >> eric: i spent the best part of yesterday and today thinking of this, researching, looking through some stuff. i put something together. look, i don't know if this is why the president decided on the morning of this vote to assert exective privilege. take a look at the full screen. i'll telestrate it a little bit, though. i don't have it on here, guys. so i'll just explain it. on the left. february 4, 2011, this letter i'm holding up in my hand, the department of justice denies any knowledge of gunrunning. put the full screen back up again. december 2, 2011, nine months later, they retract that denial. in between that time, this is important. first of all, darrell issa wants to know what went on in that time. in between that time, take a listen to what president obama says to univision. listen. >> did you operate the
2:03 pm
operation with president calderon sworn about? >> first of all, i did not authorize it. eric holder, the attorney general authorized it. >> who authorized it? >> we don't have all the facts. that's why the i.g. is in business, to collect the facts. >> you were not even informed about it? >> absolutely not. >> eric: here is the problem, absolutely not. attorney general didn't know about it, president obama claims he didn't know about it. but we know on february 4, they said they didn't know on december 2, they said they did know. they retracted the denial. and there are a whole lot of e-mails i have here that show that very high levels of the department of justice, people did know about it. at one point they said tie it to deliverance. it's not a -- it's a d.e.a. program. a lot was known. did president obama know and covering up for eric holder? or did eric holder know and he
2:04 pm
was trying to lie to president obama to shield -- >> bob: i thought deliverance was a movie? >> eric: no. it's a program. >> andrea: in the letter, this is what makes me think it's part of the deliberative process that president obama may not have known. two ways to invoke executive privilege. one could be whether or not president obama knew about it, the senior officials or if somebody in the agency, d.o.j., was mapping out a response, program, the decision could have ended up on president obama's desk. there could be a chance he didn't know about it. >> dana: or someone within the white house. this is program we learn from the "new york times" deliberate on individuals that will be killed on drone attacks around the world. a little micro manager. take him at his word and say he didn't know about it. the department of justice had been good until now about shielding the white house from this and keeping it apart. by asking president obama to assert executive privilege,
2:05 pm
there are a lot of different levels. a complicated law. what you're saying is within the deliberative discussion, there was some sort of letter or communication in between that time frame that might have said someone in the justice department knew or didn't know. there is something there. one reason this is hisser to rick, you usually can reach some accommodation. eric holder said he thought he had offered what he thought was reasonable. the committee rejected that. that is how they ended up with the vote today. >> eric: you said you think -- >> andrea: you said you think you can predict what the vote will be. >> bob: there won't be a vote next week. congress has no right to external communications of the executive branch of government. none. this is playing a game of politics, republicans are. party line vote. i thought the graphic was pretty. >> dana: that is not true. >> andrea: historically -- >> dana: that congress doesn't have right -- >> bob: internal communications? >> dana: executive office of the president you have circles so someone works directly for
2:06 pm
the president, they are protected. that's why in the bush administration if you want to make a comparison, president bush asked for executive privilege for josh bolton and harriet meyers in the u.s. attorney issue. they never had to go to contempt vote because they reached accommodation. they worked for the president. at the justice department, those people don't work in the executive office of the president. that's why i say it's more complicated than saying they don't have a right to it. they do. >> andrea: why don't you say it won't happen, though? >> bob: first of all, i have to go against you about the historic vote. world war ii is historic vote. my birthday was an historic vote. this is not historic. it happened ten times in the bush administration, 14 times in the clinton administration. >> dana: a criminal contempt -- >> bob: no, vote for executive privilege. this went to criminal contempt because darrell issa who knows a lot about criminal contempt decided they wanted to play politics. what they asked for here is internal communication. eric holder does work for the president of the united states. he went to the president because they were fishing here for more than they have a
2:07 pm
right to have. i hope they hold the feet to the fire. >> dana: then why didn't they apply that same rule, that same interpretation of the law in the bush administration? >> bob: they did. >> dana: it doesn't make sense. >> dana: alberto gonzalez did testify and turn over dock meants. >> bob: he testified and turned over -- >> andrea: bob, why don't we hear what president obama said in 2007 when he was asked about executive privilege. >> there has been a tendency on part of the administration to try to hide behind executive privilege every time there is something a little shaky that is taking place. i think the administration would be best served by coming clean on this. >> andrea: greg? >> greg: yes. >> andrea: you heard the president basically contradicting himself. >> greg: i doesn't listening to him. >> andrea: oh, no. >> greg: i was thinking that eric holder should change his name to eric withholder. >> eric: nicely done. >> greg: this drives me crazy. i'm going to make a couple of points and then i'll get a
2:08 pm
glass of water. we had 2,000 weapons walk in to mexico which fueled cartel violence and killed hundreds of people. so why isn't president calderon commenting on this? he was willing to comment on this dream act but not the ream act this literally killed hundreds of his own citizen. >> dana: over 200. >> greg: yeah. another thing, based on the whole idea on a narrow subset of documents the argument is there are things that the public should not hear. and they are within these documents but that doesn't include apparently information on a secret computer virus to fight iran. it doesn't include a president developing a kill list. it doesn't include identifying a doctor who helped get bin laden. so apparently when it comes to releasing information, the white house is like a prostitute who rediscovers her virginity. suddenly, they are holding back the info. >> bob: that is good. first, there are 50,000 people kill in the drug war south of the border. if they hadn't gotten these guns they would have gotten other guns.
2:09 pm
>> greg: how is that an arguement? >> bob: i think it's a good argument. >> greg: so they don't get them from us? >> bob: a lot of discussion taking place in the executive branch of government where you have a right to have your discussions internally protected. the congress has no rights. >> dana: "i" agree. unless it's shielding -- >> eric: until it's shielding. exactly. i'll read an e-mail from we weinstein to person right under eric holder. from the briefing, atf let a bunch of guns walk to get upstream conspirators but didn't recover many guns. some discovered in mexico after used in crimes. i think the best way to announce this without highlighting the negative part of the story and risking embarrassing atf is -- >> bob: how did you get the document >> eric: this is a coverup. >> bob: a coverup? a coverup? watergate now, is that -- >> greg: can i read a quote.
2:10 pm
>> eric: when president obama signed executive privilege i think he has made this as big as watergate and iran contra. >> greg: i want to read a quote. president can't claim executive privilege to hide information needed for criminal investigation. congress should exercise all authority to get details on crimes broken. who said that? the director of the american civil libertys union in 2007. >> bob: they will line up with the republicans on this. they will. they always do. >> andrea: do republicans risk looking a bit distracted if they keep focusing on this? the left would argue that the details of fast and furious, how this was formed, terry's death, this is not in the communication of the documents that issa is looking for. what are they looking for? besides -- >> bob: he read internal communication. i don't know how you got it but you did. shouldn't be. the answer is the republicans they want to play this game out. let them play it out.
2:11 pm
i go back to eric's point is the economy has not been talked about all week. this is dominating the entire discussion. it's a ridiculous, obsurd, issa -- >> greg: would it help obama, then? >> bob: sure. i think sure. the courts are not going to side -- >> greg: this is scary when the scandal helps obama. >> dana: i disagree. it hurts them because the president owns the stonewalling. if they continue to stonewall and don't reach accommodation of the congressman and the family of brian terry, have a little information he owns it. plus he would haven't the information at all. we wouldn't know any of this. unless there was congress. so you have a -- so you have a lot to thank the republicans for bringing republics to the majority in congress. >> bob: you call it stonewalling. is that a fact? stonewalling? >> dana: they're exerting executive privilege. >> bob: that is not stonewalling. that's a right. >> dana: if they prove the documents belong in executive
2:12 pm
privilege, they will be fine. >> bob: i think they will. >> andrea: hold that thought. much more to come next on the breaking news in washington today. later, take a listen to this.

2:17 pm
asked something very important. is this, is this in ils quirky way helped the obama administration re-election campaign? >> andrea: i think it can. i think they believe it will. i think obama wants this fight with republicans. i think that he would rather talk about anything but the economy. he would rather have the republicans screaming about the second amendment and guns because optics benefit him rather than screaming about the economy and how he hasn't produced jobs. that is my thinking. the second amendment voters aren't with the president anyway. >> dana: i think they don't want it because it's a distraction of the kind you don't want. the remember the thing, the policy they were driving on contraception the first amendment mandate and now the church is up in arms, that is a fight they designed started, planned and implementing. this is one they didn't want, they waited until the 11th

hour. they were trying to keep the white house out of it. >> eric: why did the white house get involved? why didn't they let it go and let eric holder go up against the vote, even risk contempt of congress? >> bob: because the president has to issue executive privilege this way so. that why? >> bob: for good reason. the interesting thing about the politics of this. has anybody heard one thing from mitt romney this week? not much. >> dana: exclusive interview with sean hannity last night. >> andrea: issued a statement today, spokesman who said this president considers himself the most transparent in history and yet, he won't release the documents. staying away from it. >> bob: i wasn't complaining about romney saying something. but in the scheme of things he has been shut out of the dialogue here. on hannity that's fine. >> andrea: that is the point. he doesn't want to get involved. any shrewd republican knows

2:20 pm
>> eric: is that a banned phrase? >> bob: this is fascinating for people watching the new york. america could care less. >> eric: i found this interesting. all the democrats, especially those testifying today were saying it's a witch hunt. in 2007, they brought roger clemens to the hill to testify if he did steroids 20 years ago. that wasn't a witch hunt that was good legislation, i guess. this isn't a witch hunt? >> andrea: this is not a witch hunt. we had a border agent that died. a gun running program went awry. this is my issue.

2:22 pm
>> bob: obama was playing politics then and republicans are playing politics now. >> dana: but in this case, someone died. >> greg: the point is in the media if there is a scandal that a democrat is involved it's called politically charged. this is politically charged. but if it's a republican it's seeking the truth. >> eric: don't the american people deserve to know who, what, when, whether or not the president told us the truth and/or the attorney general? >> bob: the chairman of the committee calls the president of the united states a liar doesn't have a right to have a chairmanship, number one. issa has experience with criminal investigation. >> eric: you keep bringing that up -- >> bob: it is as wrong for her to do it as him to do it. >> dana: i agree. i know. >> eric: darrell issa before congressman was never charged with a crime. never found guilty of a crime. >> bob: he had a plea bargain. >> andrea: next week, say the house votes, to holderer in contempt. where does it go next >> the u.s. attorney's office. guess who they work for? eric holder. by the time they get answers
