Description


The Founding Fathers took great pains to set up a government with three equal branches with the intent of limiting the powers of any one branch. Yet the executive branch possesses powers, known as executive privilege, which can be invoked to withhold information from the other branches in certain matters. But what happens when presidents use executive privilege to hide wrongdoing? How much does the public deserve to know? In this volume, experts make their cases both against and in support of executive privilege and project how it might be expanded or limited in the future.
