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.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
