ABSTRACT

Draft Report of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, U.S. House of Representatives, Regarding President Bush's Assertion of Executive Privilege in Response to the Committee Subpoena to Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey   [open pdf - 55KB]

This document is a draft of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform report that criticizes President Bush's assertion of executive privilege. "The Committee finds that the President's assertion of executive privilege over the report of the Vice President's interview was legally unprecedented and an inappropriate use of executive privilege. The assertion of executive privilege prevents the Committee from having access to a complete set of records and thus results in the Committee's inability to assess fully the actions of the Vice President. This report is supported by both Chairman Henry A. Waxman and the former Rep. Tom Davis, who served as the Committee's Ranking Member during the Committee's investigation of the leak of Ms. Wilson's identity in the 110th Congress and who resigned from Congress on November 24, 2008."
