Trump asserts executive privilege to block release of full, unredacted Mueller report

Trump asserts executive privilege to block release of full, unredacted Mueller report | 08 May 2019 | President Trump asserted executive privilege on Wednesday in a bid to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller's unredacted report and underlying documents from subpoena by the House Judiciary Committee. The president's move came after the Justice Department, late Tuesday night, requested that the House Judiciary Committee postpone a scheduled vote on to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena to provide the Mueller files to the panel. The Justice Department warned that if the committee did not postpone the vote, the attorney general would recommend that Trump claim executive privilege over the materials. On Wednesday, the White House did just that.
