Appearing on Face the Nation, President Donald Trump’s legal advisor Rudy Giuliani bizarrely extended executive privilege to more than the president as a reason for Attorney General Bill Barr to hide large portions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Speaking with host Margaret Brennan, the former New York City mayor was pressed about Trump interfering in the report by claiming “executive privilege.”
“The president can’t wave all executive privilege” Giuliani asserted before adding, “There are also other people who have executive privilege.”
Pressed once more about Trump inserting himself, he stated, “I don’t know. The AG has said he’s going to put up the maximum amount possible. The only thing that will stop him will be legal barriers.”

Amy Coney Barrett’s membership in her controversial ‘covenant group’ should be probed by Democrats: Catholic theologian
Appearing on CNN early Sunday morning, Massimo Faggioli -- Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Villanova University -- said the Senate Democrats are within their rights to question Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett about her religion with a focus on her specific beliefs that he asserted are out of the mainstream -- even within the church.
Speaking with CNN host Martin Savidge, Faggioli made the case that Barrett is part of a fringe "covenant" group within the Catholic religion that should be brought to light to understand how she views the world.
'Why is her devotion so much more problematic?" the CNN host asked.
Democrats have a plan to make Mitch McConnell’s life as painful as possible: report
According to a report from Politico, Senate Democrats acknowledge that they don't have the numbers to keep Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett off the court when the Senate takes up the vote -- but that doesn't mean they won't be using her controversial nomination to make Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's life a living hell as the election approaches.
With the Republican-controlled Senate poised to rush Barrett's nomination through with a vote tentatively scheduled prior to the November 3rd election, Politico is reporting that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has his colleagues on-board to "disrupt and obstruct Senate Republicans" with an assortment on procedural maneuvers that will hinder McConnell's efforts.
Trump’s Supreme Court pick has a problem with the Constitution
Nomination of conservative Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court makes us think about the role of government in our lives and the Republican majority view of winning vs. fairness.
That her lifetime confirmation will change the direction of the Supreme Court for many years is a given, and, as it happens a sop toward Donald Trump’s re-election efforts.
But what is there to learn here?
Here’s the good news about nominee Barrett: There will be no nonsense about a woman as the nominee, and minimal attention on her choices about religion, lifestyle and what she wears. She will get the same black robe as the rest.
