Russia Today: US President Donald Trump has invoked executive privilege over the unredacted Mueller report and other subpoenaed materials, the Justice Department has said.
Bush and Blair discuss executive privilege

The decision was announced by Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd in a letter to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday morning. The committee was poised to vote on a contempt citation against Attorney General William Barr over failure to present the unredacted Mueller report and other materials, that have been demanded through subpoena.

What happened in the rest of the film….?

Where did the nose go?

The White House defended Trump’s move, stating that the president had “no other option” besides invoking executive privilege, as he faced “blatant abuse of power” from the committee’s chairman Jerrold Nadler.

Democrats have sought greater transparency surrounding the special counsel investigation into President Trump’s alleged Russia ties, requesting a complete, unredacted version of the special counsel’s final report, as well as testimony from Robert Mueller and Attorney General William Barr.

The Department of Justice recently offered to allow select lawmakers to see a more complete version of the report, but for many Democrats that was not sufficient.

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Democratic chairman Jerry Nadler, is to vote to hold Barr in contempt of Congress on Wednesday over his handling of the report, which likely prompted the White House’s assertion of executive power.

  1. The purpose of the Mule, the Dirty Dossier and the whole Russian Collusion Hoax was to drive Trump into the arms of Neocons and force him to abandon his America First agenda. Frankly I don’t really give a damn how corrupt he is. Like JFK he’s no angel but the fact is that he wanted a rapprochement with Russia and withdraw troops from the Middle East put him on the enemies list just as JFK’s efforts to end US involvement in Vietnam did or Nixon’s efforts to bring about detent did or even going back to Eisenhower and his effort to establish an accord with Kruschev that was sabotaged by Gary Powers.

  2. Missing a lot IS the point of this administration. There is no human way to keep up with all the lies and corruption going on in this White House. I am assuming you agreed with the redactions of the faulty 911 report as well? Lizzie you seem to be OK with the lesser evil philosophy of governance. Personally I think we need to shed light on all miss deeds and evil, and with such gained knowledge make informed decisions. The AG would not be violating any laws by providing the full Mueller report because the sensitive information you allude to would be taken up by the court and through established legal proceedures the congress would, under court mandated restriction receive the “unredacted” report. The Russian support header refers to the destabilizing effect Trumps executive order has on the US government. I’m sure you know the ‘hoot’ Russia gives about that. I am not a lawyer so I am certain this issue with Barr will drag on to eternity.
