As the Bush era winds down, the President is asserting executive privilege to impede congressional oversight of his administration. With a contempt of Congress vote looming by Rep. Henry Waxman’s (D-CA) House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, President Bush asserted executive privilege last Friday morning, blocking the committee’s subpoenas for documents relating to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to reject California’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to override scientific recommendations on ozone standards.
