Abstract

The US Supreme Court has recently rejected former President Trump’s request to stop the National Archives from releasing White House records from during his tenure. Gary J. Schmitt and Jeffrey K. Tulis look at the recent history of disputes over executive privilege between Congress and the executive, and argue that while hyper-partisanship in the legislature has necessitated the Supreme Court’s involvement in resolving these disagreements, this is not good for Congress – or for the Court.
