Executive privilege: Presidential power, secrecy, and accountability

Over at Lawfare, Margaret Taylor interviews Mark Rozell, the Dean of the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University, and the author of Executive Privilege: Presidential Power, Secrecy and Accountability (University of Kansas). Rozell’s tome “chronicles the history of executive privilege in its many forms since the founding of the United States. They talked about what executive privilege is, what is new in the Trump administration’s handling of congressional demands for information, and what it all means for the separation of powers in our constitutional democracy.” Click above to listen to their conversation, or click here to download the podcast.
