Got a minute? ‘I am not stonewalling’, attorney general testifies … the secret GOP healthcare bill… will Trump fire special counsel?… and everything in US politics. By Tom McCarthy
Before he signed a letter recommending the firing of James Comey, attorney general Jeff Sessions may or may not have spoken with Donald Trump about the FBI’s Russia inquiry. We don’t know, because Sessions refused to answer that question Tuesday.
If it comes to a point where the issue is clear and there is a dispute about it, at some point the president will either assert the privilege or not, or some other privilege … It would be premature for me to deny the president a full and intelligent choice about executive privilege.
