No Congress, we don't have to listen to you:
http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/20/politics/holder-contempt/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

"President Barack Obama has asserted executive privilege over documents sought by a House committee investigating the botched Fast and Furious gun-running sting, according to a letter to the panel Wednesday from Deputy Attorney Gen. James Cole.

The move means the Department of Justice can withhold the documents from the House Oversight Committee, which was scheduled to consider a contempt measure Wednesday against Holder."

And in turn, congress doesn't pay much attention to the constitution....

Wonder to what extent they could just pull funding from the exec branch if they got pissed?
