Trump Asserts Executive Privilege Over Full Mueller Report

President Trump asserted executive
privilege on Wednesday in an effort to shield hidden portions of Robert
S. Mueller III’s unredacted report and the evidence he collected from
Congress. The assertion, Mr. Trump’s
first use of the secrecy powers as president, came as the House
Judiciary Committee is expected to vote Wednesday morning to recommend
the House of Representatives hold Attorney General William P. Barr in
contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for the same material.
