Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Retired Supreme Court Justice Has Sharp Words For President Trump”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said President Donald Trump has exceeded his executive authority by refusing to cooperate with congressional subpoenas.

Stevens, 99, made the remarks during a wide-ranging interview with The Wall Street Journal in connection with his forthcoming memoir, “The Making of a Justice: Reflections on My First 94 Years.”

“The president is exercising powers that do not really belong to him,” Stevens told the Journal. “I mean, he has to comply with subpoenas and things like that.”

“I wouldn’t want to predict that anybody’s going to take the incorrect view,” Stevens said when pressed as to how the Supreme Court might resolve the dispute. “But certainly, the correct view is pretty clear.”

Democratic congressional committees have issued a bevy of subpoenas to the administration and Trump confidants, seeking documents and testimony relating to the president’s tax returns and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, among other subjects. For his part, Trump has categorically refused to cooperate. (RELATED: Democratic Efforts To Pack The Supreme Court Just Hit A Big Wall: Public Opinion)
