Donald Trump Asserts Executive Privilege Over Unredacted Mueller Report

Donald Trump Asserts Executive Privilege Over Unredacted Mueller Report Trump has used his executive power to prevent the full disclosure of Robert Mueller’s report.

The order was delivered to the House Judiciary Committee just as they were voting on whether to hold AG William Barr in contempt of Congress.

Trump’s move is in retribution for the committee’s refusal to postpone their vote, as requested by the Justice Department.

Sarah Sanders, via statement Trump’s decision is considered a “protective assertion” of privilege and will allow him to decide what information will be withheld.

This does not cast Trump in a favorable light, as he has consistently remarked that the report offered him “complete and total exoneration.” Jerry Nadler, chair of the committee, reaffirmed their stance in the matter, saying nobody “can be permitted to be above the law.” Jerry Nadler, via ‘CNBC’
