Administration grants executive privilege to Eric Holder

The investigation into what role Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department played in Fast and Furious continues to rage on. Representative Darrell Issa has threatened to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for not turning over the necessary documents, but Holder has continued to defy orders.

Never one to shy away from controversy – or create some of his own – President Obama has now come out and claimed ‘executive privilege’ on Fast and Furious. It seems like a weak moment for the administration, who to some degree is admitting they are in trouble.

“Here's my question. My question is are you going to investigate this and will you put people in jail that deserve to be in jail no matter how high they go up after they leave office,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “It looks like President Obama now is claiming executive privilege on Fast and Furious. They're in trouble and they know it.”

Holder and the Justice Department have been a doing a song and dance for months – offering to comply one day and missing deadlines the next.

“They said that they, ‘Oh, we'll turn over all the documents. We have nothing to hide.’ All of a sudden, ‘Umm... executive privilege.’ They know they're in trouble,” Glenn said. “This is the most corrupt administration I think probably of all time.”

While Glenn did not accuse President Obama of any wrong doing in relation to the Fast and Furious investigation, he did take a hard stance on how to prosecute government officials who break the law.

“And I wonder – because we set a precedent with Nixon, and I'm not saying that the president is involved in anything and, you know, should go to jail,” Glenn said. “If you're breaking the law and you're involved in corruption, no man is above. I think, you know, people say, ‘You can't put the president of the United States in prison.’ Oh, I think that's the best place for him.”

Glenn believes such action would send a message to politicians and to the country as a whole that this type of behavior will not be tolerated. “I think that sends a message not only to, you know, our own politicians, ‘It doesn't matter how high you've gotten. You can still go to jail,’ but it also sends a message to the rest of the world and to our kids.”

Perhaps the best news to come out of this whole ordeal is that it seems the American people are finally putting their foot down.

“This administration is on fire. It is on fire,” Glenn concluded. “The good news is I think America's waking up to it.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
