Donald Trump will not use Executive Privilege to block James Comey from testifying

June 5, 2017

 Last week, after Sean Spicer refused to deny the possibility, it was speculated that Donald Trump would invoke Executive Privilege to block James Comey as did Barack Obama with documents concerning Eric Holder during the Fast and Furious investigation. I was very concerned about this possibility…

  It is now being reported by Politico that the President will not try to stonewall the investigation and will not invoke Executive Privilege, here is more:

President Donald Trump will not invoke executive privilege in order to block former FBI Director James Comey from testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday.

“The president’s power to exert executive privilege is very well established,” Sanders said at Monday’s White House press briefing. “However, in order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey’s scheduled testimony.”

  This is good news: this investigation has already dragged on something like 10 months now and there is no sense in prolonging it if Donald Trump has nothing to hide.
