FAST AND FURIOUS
Judge says she leaning toward White House privilege claim in Operation Fast and Furious

WASHINGTON


A federal judge says she is leaning toward allowing President Barack Obama's claim of executive privilege in Operation Fast and Furious, the failed law enforcement operation at the center of a congressional investigation and subpoena fight between the Justice Department and House Republicans.

At a hearing Thursday, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson cautioned that she has not decided how she will rule in the case.

But she said she views the executive privilege claim as qualified. That means some Justice Department records that House Republican want might be kept confidential, while others might be subject to public disclosure.

Lawyers for the House and the White House argued the issue before Jackson, who will rule on whether the president's privilege claim trumps the congressional subpoena.
