    He's screwed either way. Albeit, he can gain more time for whatever he needs in the meantime if he denies the testimony hearing.

    Misleading topic headline.
    This is CNN speculating what Trump "could" do, not what he wants to do.

    and then we can judge for ourselves whether Trump's claims of executive privilege would have been warranted.

    WTF with the misleading thread?
    --- Post Merged, Jun 2, 2017 ---
    Anyways,

    "White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Friday that "the President will make that decision," raising the prospect that the White House may try to invoke executive privilege over Comey's conversations with Trump."

    If I was Trump and my lawyers said it was a-ok to do, I'd do it just to piss off the Democrats.

    While I despise "executive privilege" we know Obama had no problem using it with Eric Hooder, so the noise from the left should be pretty faint.

    As Ronald Reagan once said, "There you go again." (bringing up Obama, making generalizations about "the left.")

    Everything is gross. Except Melania. Melania is way hotter than Ted Cruise's wife.

    Trump is just doing what any North Korean dictator wannabe would do. People in Oklahoma love that stuff. #MAGAlikeitsNorthKorea

    Oh, look. The Democrats assumed he was going to do something he didn't. I think Trump secretly taped Comey, so if he says anything false under testimony Trump will give the recording to congressional leaders and Comey will have perjured himself. Honestly I think it's going be another "no evidence, but concerns" type of testimony.

    What happened the last time a president made secret recordings?

    You mean Nixon? He resigned. That guy was paranoid as F***. Trump, if he did record was doing it to protect himself later on.

    while there is a mention of recordings it is NOT clear WHO recorded WHO.
    --- Post Merged, Jun 5, 2017 ---

    Both sides. they kept mics and speakers too close so the recording is just one loud whistle.
