Chris Wallace: To a Certain Extent Trump’s Waived Exec. Privilege to Block Comey by Tweeting

‘There’s a question as to how strong his legal case is since he’s to a certain degree waived executive privilege’

RUSH EXCERPT:

WALLACE: "I’d ask him about this. But one of the questions that is wide open and continues to be open as you mentioned at the top of the show, is he going to invoke executive privilege to try to block former director Comey from temperaturing before the Senate intelligence committee on Thursday. He could do that. There’s a question as to how strong his legal case is since he’s to a certain degree waived executive privilege by making comments, sending out tweets. Even in his dismissal letter characterizing the conversation where he claimed Comey said he’s not part of the investigation. So it’s not to say it’s protected but you have this dramatic testimony by James Comey Thursday. He was asked, Sean Spicer, today, and I think earlier in the week as to whether or not the president was going to invoke executive privilege to block it temporarily. He said that hasn’t been decided yet."
