President Trump today said he will not try to block former FBI investigator James Comey from testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which he is scheduled to do Thursday.
Talk about a move that would have raised a lot more questions than would be worth it.
From the White House:
The President’s power to assert executive privilege is well-established. However, in order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey’s scheduled testimony.
