President Trump has asserted executive privilege over the entire Mueller report, saying he won’t comply with the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoenas for the unredacted report or the underlying evidence. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, “Faced with Chairman Nadler’s blatant abuse of power, and at the attorney general’s request, the president has no other option than to make a protective assertion of executive privilege.” This comes as the New York Times found that Trump lost more than a billion dollars over 10 years.
