THREAD: I invoked Rod Serling & Twilight Zone when the news hit about #Trump asserting #ExcutivePrivilege over documents underlying #MuellerReport. I thought I should explain given your questions about US v Nixon & more.
First, there are two different issues to sort through. 1. grand jury material redacted in #MuellerReport and the grand jury material - documents - the report relies on; and 2. documents like McGahn's notes that Mueller refers to in the report that may exist outside of grand jury
House Dems are basically arguing they can see grand jury material behind closed doors (not public) without a court order. The Congressional Research Service notes that 2 court decisions agree with them & others do not. This sets up a court battle. fas.org/sgp/crs/secrec…
