Why Did Holder Resist Issa's Request?

Cummings says the documents, or "internal deliberations," are like attorney-client privileged information. Holder voluntarily gave up 1,000 pages of notes from before Feb. 4 and was willing to produce more, even though past attorney generals have resisted such requests. But he also maintained that turning over post-Feb. 4 documents would have "significant, damaging consequences" and impair criminal prosecutions.
