University of Minnesota - Twin Cities - School of Law
Iowa Law Review, Vol. 92, No. 2, p. 489, 2007
This Article assesses the constitutional validity of executive privilege, focusing solely on executive privilege disputes between Congress and the President or other high-ranking executive branch officers. This Article defines such conflicts broadly to include clashes over information sought directly by Congress (or by a committee or subcommittee thereof), clashes over information sought by individuals through congressionally drawn public access statutes, and clashes over information sought by congressionally created agencies.
