President Trump wants to move the country forward and wants the media to quit dwelling on its witch hunt.
For that reason, he has announced that he won’t block former FBI Director, James Comey’s, testimony, which is expected to happen this Thursday.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee was back today, and she announced this:
She first reminded the media that the president does have the power to exert executive privilege, but he wants a swift and thorough examination of the facts, so he won’t even try to block his testimony.
That says a lot, I think. Privilege is when certain communications are protected. Like how I, as an attorney, can’t talk about what my clients tell me. That communication is privileged. Similarly, a president’s communications are privileged.
The courts have consistently recognized the executive privilege since the early 1800’s. In fact, the Supreme Court has held:
“A President and those who assist him must be free to explore alternatives in the process of shaping policies and making decisions, and to do so in a way many would be unwilling to express except privately. These are the considerations justifying a presumptive privilege for Presidential communications. The privilege is fundamental to the operation of Government, and inextricably rooted in the separation of powers under the Constitution.”
I don’t claim to know what Comey will say. But the media doesn’t know, either. They sure want to make implications though, don’t they? I, for one, look forward to his testimony, as it will get out out of the realm of implications, assumptions and innuendo, and into fact, at least Comey’s version, anyway.
If you are proud of your President and want him to be able to move on an Make America Great Again, SHARE this, please, everywhere!
