Wednesday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin decried the “utter ignorance and constitutional illiteracy” surrounding the possibility that President Trump may invoke executive privilege to keep former White House counsel Don McGahn from testifying before the House of Representatives.

Levin called out House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., for saying that the time to assert executive privilege on this matter “has long since passed” because it wasn’t invoked during the Mueller probe.

“This is a separation of powers issue. A president must be able to talk to his own counsel,” Levin countered. “And the president must determine who his own counsel can talk to about what they talked about.”

“He never waived executive privilege vis-a-vis another branch of government,” Levin continued. “Never.”
