Rep. Jerrold Nadler on Meet the Press: The president must personally assert executive privilege. And I do not believe it exists here at all because, as we learned from the Nixon tapes case, executive privilege cannot hide -- cannot be used to hide wrongdoing. And in that case, the Supreme Court nine to nothing ordered that all the claims of executive privilege be overridden and the tapes be public. So I don't think that executive -- I mean, the president may try to assert it, may try to hide things behind it. But I don't think that's right or be successful. I want to say that we know a few other things which are very relevant here. We know that the president pressured the FBI director to go easy, to drop the investigation on Mike Flynn and some others. We know that he fired the FBI director for not giving him the personal loyalty that he demanded and for not dropping those investigations. We know that many of the president's closest associates, his national security advisor, campaign manager, et cetera, have been convicted of various crimes. And we know that he's waged a relentless two-year campaign to attack the law enforcement institutions, the FBI, the special prosecutor, all to demean the power --

"Quit wasting our money."

The Mueller investigation has more than paid for itself.

Agreed. Let's stop wasting money.

No border wall. End all wars. Bring the troops home. Stop giving money to Israel. Stop giving money to the rich in the form of subsidies. Stop giving the rich tax breaks. Stop detaining people at the border and putting them in cages. Stop the weekly golfing trips for Trump. Cut the salary for the president and congress, they should be paid minimum wage and have the same healthcare as someone on minimum wage.

Quit wasting our money.

When you pin your hopes to Nadler, you need to find new hopes.

I am for disclosure to the fullest extent possible.

I mean that as broadly as possible, which includes the impetus for the investigation, FISA warrants of Carter Page, etc. Everything.

When you whine about leaks, you are saying that the president should be able to hide his activities from his employers -the american people.

In his dreams, he pardons Mueller.

#1 Trump is stealing $8 billion to put up fencing material that is actually being stolen by criminals.

And as pointed out above, it has paid for itself.

The cons are just getting stupider. Their talking points are moronic.

That's rich, BB.

Your entire party's entire platform since the election in 2016 just got BTFO and you're calling someone else's talking points moronic.

Self perspective is a gift. You are welcome.
