Trump administration again pushes limits of authority in shielding whistleblower complaint from Congress
From The Washington Post:
Jim Baker, a former FBI general counsel now at the R Street Institute, said that while the president could generally invoke presidential communications privilege to keep secret his talks with foreign leaders, his publicly acknowledging the conversation could complicate that.
If Trump was invoking privilege merely to keep secret an inappropriate request of a foreign leader, “it could be interpreted that he has abused his power,” Baker said.
