Sarah Huckabee Sanders Announces Trump’s Plan to “Exert Executive Privilege” to Block Comey Testimony [Details]

There’s no doubt, Trump is feeling the heat right now more than ever.  He’s been lashing out on Twitter to vent his frustrations, knowing that he is a sinking ship.

This week, James Comey is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.  There’s been chatter about President Trump planning to exercise his executive privilege to block the Comey testimony from ever happening.

The problem with blocking Comey’s testimony is it makes Trump look even guiltier.  According to Politico, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed on Monday that Trump will choose not to invoke his privilege.

During Monday’s WH press briefing, Huckabee Sanders stated, “The president’s power to exert executive privilege is very well established. However, in order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey’s scheduled testimony.”

Trump’s decision to fire Comey was one of many shocking calls Trump’s made during his young presidency.  Numerous political experts compared the move to Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre.

What Trump didn’t expect was Comey’s desire for revenge.  Comey claims to have proof that Trump asked him to let go of the Flynn investigation and pledge his loyalty to Trump.

Americans will have to wait and see what Comey says this week during his scheduled public testimony.
