But little is likely to happen as a result. We look at why Congress is running out of options for investigating the president. Guest: Adam Liptak, who covers the Supreme Court for The New York Times.

Obama uses executive privilege during the fast and furious scandal on documents after Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress for stonewalling NYT: ..... Trump uses executive privilege on an report of which a version has already been released to the public NYT: OMG THIS THREATENS THE CONSTITUTION AND OUR NATION... OHHH THE HORROR!!!

Mateus Oliveira What are you talking about? My entire point was that the NYT is a bias shitstorm of a paper and covers both sides differently. My point isn’t pointless because they never covered Obama using exec privilege the way they covered trump doing it... Funny part is trump actually released the report largely unredacted before he used exec privilege, Obama went straight to exec privilege.
