Non-Privilege Privilege

ARI SHAPIRO: It seems as though the Trump administration officials who are claiming this non-privilege privilege [Jeff Sessions, Michael Coats, Mike Rogers] are gambling that Republicans will want to defend the Trump administration more than they will want to defend the prerogatives of Congress.

STEVE VLADECK, UTexas Law professor: I think that is the gamble they're taking, and I think that's going to be a safe gamble until the moment the Republicans decide that the separation of powers is more important than the separation of parties.

In other words - forever, or until a Democrat is back in office.

...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
