“Executive Privilege” Should Be Ended, Not Extended

“On November 9, DC District Court judge Tanya Chutkan refused former US president Donald Trump’s request, based on ‘executive privilege,’ for a preliminary injunction forbidding the National Archives and Records Administration to release documents to the US House committee grandstanding on … er, ‘investigating’ … the January 6 Capitol riot. If  Trump’s name goes down in history for anything of substance rather than mere flash, it  should probably be for his bizarre claim that  people who aren’t executives anymore retain ‘executive privilege’ over information pertaining to their time in office.” (11/09/21)
