Romney aide: Obama invoking executive privilege over Fast and Furious docs ‘just another broken promise’ of transparency

The campaign of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the GOP’s nominee for president, on Wednesday criticized President Barack Obama’s decision to invoke executive privilege over Fast and Furious-related documents.

“President Obama’s pledge to run the most open and transparent administration in history has turned out to be just another broken promise,” Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an email to The Daily Caller.

Romney called for Holder’s resignation in December 2011, but has remained largely silent on Fast and Furious since. His only other acknowledgement of the scandal came during a speech at the NRA convention earlier this year.
