Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow roasted Adam Schiff by using his own 2012 words against him on the topic of executive privilege.

“The White House assertion of privilege is backed by decades of precedent that has recognized the need for the president and his senior advisers to receive candid advice and information from their top aides.”
Indeed that’s correct. Not because Manager Schiff said it but because the constitution requires it.
