When you have nothing to hide, there is no reason to play games. Trump and his administration have always said they look forward to Comey’s testimony, and they aren’t trying to block any information from coming to light.
Independent Journal Review reported:
The Donald Trump administration will not attempt to block James Comey’s Senate testimony by invoking executive privilege. On Monday, the White House made the announcement of the decision, both via a statement and an answer to the opening question of the daily White House Press Briefing.
“The President’s power to assert executive privilege is well-established,” begins the statement. “However, in order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey’s scheduled testimony.”
FOX News adds:
At the daily White House press briefing, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters the president wants a “thorough investigation of facts,” in reference to Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee this Thursday.
“The president’s power to assert executive privilege is very well-established. However, in order to facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Trump will not assert executive privilege regarding James Comey’s scheduled testimony,” Huckabee Sanders said, reading a statement on the matter to reporters on Monday.
It may be fun to watch the testimony just to see the left squirm as they wait for “nothing” to materialize.
