President Trump asserted executive privilege on Wednesday in a bid to protect Special Counsel Robert Muellers unredacted report and underlying documents from subpoena by the House Judiciary Committee.
The presidents 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.

Game, set, math with doo doo on Nadler’s face.
Here we go!...............
Game, set, civics....................
Of course Pelosi and Schumer will jump up and down....saying he's obstructing justice.
The Rats would use the unredacted report to dox and persecute witnesses for starters.
Ball is in your court NoNads...to impeach POTUS or not to impeach.
About time he claims executive privilege.
He did it while Nadler Circus voting !
Its fiction! Not even Democrats have bothered to read the report thats publicly available.
Theyre simply upset it didnt provide them with grounds for impeachment.
In a rational world, they would have moved on. Instead, they keep digging.
No one outside their rabid anfi-Trump base cares.
Apologies if this has been posted. Listened to Rush last week and he stated the unredacted report has been available in a secure room to all in the house and senate, with the caveat that it can only be viewed by signing-in and cannot be removed or copied by the viewer. It had been several days since the report was made available and only 2 legislators viewed the document...both were Republicans.
We all know the left is only interested in cherry-picking quotes from the report to attack Our President.
This has been reported on Fox too. I’ve seen Republican members say this. That tells is this is all theatrics which undermines the Dems actions if it goes to the courts.
Game ... Blouses!
It’s the ‘underlying documents” they want. Herr Mules homework.
The names and statements of the hundreds of those interviewed and were not charged. The millions of pages subpoenaed
I guess Sandy Berger wouldn’t be allowed in, then, if he were still alive.
Any legal expert freepers out there who knows what will happen next???
As a novice I am guessing it will get tied up in the courts for quite a while.
The summary was released, they did not find that he did anything wrong. That is sufficient.
Executive privilege? why? It would be against a real Congressionally passed federal law for Barr to release the unredacted report. There is no EO necessary.
