Trump Asserts Executive Privilege Before House Contempt Vote

CNN reports President Donald Trump invoked executive privilege over Robert Mueller's full report Wednesday.

The Justice Department said Wednesday that the "President has asserted executive privilege over the entirety of the subpoenaed materials." House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler had subpoenaed Attorney General William Barr for the full, unredacted version of the Mueller report.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump's move was in response to the committee's scheduled vote to hold Barr in contempt.

"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."
