Donald Trump asserts exec privilege over everythingThe White House said Wednesday that President Donald Trump has asserted executive privilege over special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The decision, announced by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, came as the House Judiciary Committee debated whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide the entire unredacted report to lawmakers.

The decision likely sets up a protracted legal battle between the administration and congressional Democrats, who have been pushing for access to the full 448-page report and its underlying evidence. By asserting executive privilege, the White House is denying Congress access to the evidence gathered during Mueller's investigation.
