If - and I say IF since Trump had not invoked the privilege - Trump were to invoke executive privilege - The Chief Justice was right there to rule on it. As you know there is not such thing as executive privilege to further or hide a crime..
    Irrelevant here as no crime was alleged.

    Abuse of power and covering it up with obstruction tactics is the crime Trump is accused of. One cannot allege executive privilege to cover up a crime.

    Those were the final charges. The House also was looking at various crimes ranging from bribery to violation of federal law on foreign campaign aid. Those also are crimes and no claim of executive privilege protects from those.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    I don't maintain anything, he was a CIA man and named as an NSC advisor for Romney in 2011 during his campaign. He was on the board at Burisma at the same time Hunter Biden was.
