Executive Privilege "Trumps" Democrats on Census Question

House Democrats Want Documents Related to Census Questions Turned Over to Oversight Committee

The Census, which is scheduled to be conducted in 2020 is important to the makeup of our representative government as well as the process used to allocate federal funds on the local level. The Trump White House and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross have argued for the addition of a question pertaining to citizen status to be part of the next census.

The Democrat heavy House Oversight Committee is demanding that documents pertaining to the development and institution of the citizenship question be turned over to the body immediately.

President Trump has decided to exert executive privilege over the documents as the Justice Department notified the chairman of the House oversight committee of Trump's decision in a letter Wednesday.
