Bowdoin’s Rudalevige on Whether Trump Has the Power to Block Comey from Testifying (Monkey Cage)

It has been reported that President Trump will not invoke “executive privilege” to prevent former FBI director James Comey from testifying before a Senate committee Thursday.

As Andrew Rudalevige, Bowdoin’s Thomas Brackett Reed Professor of Government, writes in the Washington Post political science blog, The Monkey Cage, “the popping of that trial balloon has less to do with the broader concept of executive privilege and more to do with the specifics of the current situation.” Read his piece, “Does Trump have the power to block Comey from testifying? Probably not.”
