this is from ~ The Washington Post<quoted text>Duh? officer duh!
Executive privilege "CUTS BOTH WAYS".!
Why has executive privilege been such a contentious issue?
Because it is at the fulcrum of a very delicate balancing act — between a president's right to candid advice and Congress' right to information. Also, executive privilege is a power that political parties tend to support when they control the White House, but abhor when they're out of power. For that reason, neither party is eager for a definitive ruling from the Supreme Court. For its part, the high court seems to be in no hurry to wade into such contentious constitutional waters.
BTW...guess who was the first President to invoke EP?
The Father of our nation...George Washington!!!!
It's one of those Damned if you do and Damned if you don't things!
