But I beleive that what Issa could be aiming for here is to force the president to invoke executive privledge.
That might be a very bad move for the administration. The Supreme Court's views on the nature and scope of executive privilege have varied over the years. We currently have a situation in which the judicial and executive branches are at each other's throats in a way they haven't been since the Roosevelt administration, and if executive privilege were invoked, it might backfire when the Court decides to deny it.
