Pres. Barack Obama has used the Executive Order to extend diplomatic immunity to Interpol. Any files the organization holds on any US elected officials, including the president, are now immune from the legal fact-finding process.
Pres.

The amendment to Executive Order 12425, signed by Obama on December 17, 2009, declared Interpol records immune from search and seizure, "The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable."
By virtue of this declaration, any information that Interpol may have on political operatives or elected officials in the US -- including SEIU president Andy Stern, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and President Obama himself -- would be immune from any attempts to bring the information to light.
