Are they hiding something behind executive privilege?There is credible evidence that the Trump administration tried to add a citizenship question to the census to get data it needed to gerrymander districts & disenfranchise Democrats & people of color. https://t.co/ulZZgrgR52

This is a blatant abuse of executive privilege. The American people have a right to know how (and why) the Census was modified. This is about the basic foundation of our democracy: every person counts. https://t.co/5z4ov2w8Fa

JUST IN: Trump has asserted executive privilege over materials in the Census dispute w/ House Oversight. This just before the committee is set to hold AG Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt for failing to turn over the materials, which the committee had subpoenaed @mattzap's photo on Executive Privilege

This is a scandalous abuse of power. Documents suggest Republicans rigged the 2020 Census purposefully to hurt Blacks and Hispanics, and now the Trump administration is claiming executive privilege to block the release of subpoenaed documents to Congress. https://t.co/MmgbDzue3d

Coverup Chief William Barr has informed House Democrats that executive privilege will be invoked regarding info connected to the 2020 census and the racist citizenship question brought forth by Wilbur Ross. More criminal obstruction. Barr, Ross and Mnuchin should be in jail.

You mean the executive privilege he never used against Mueller? Trump gave them every document they asked for, and every interview they wanted with his staff. Full transparency. He never used executive privilege to protect himself against Mueller and he had every right to. https://t.co/fK0G1Z2Mv2

The democrats are saying that asking about citizenship on the 2020 census will disenfranchise voters. This is an admission, from the @DNC, that they expect, and rely on, people to cast illegal ballots. There is NO OTHER REASON to oppose a citizenship question. Executive privilege
