Obama in 2007: I’ll Not Abuse Executive Privilege
Obama told CNN in 2007 that he would respect the law and the separation of powers if he were President (March 28, 2007).
“The issue of executive power and executive privilege is one that, uh, subject to abuse, and in an Obama presidency what you will be a sufficient respect for law, and the coequal branches of government. And I hope we don’t find ourselves in the situation in which we would be having aides being subpoened…”
Except THIS Obama said he would go around the Congress to get his agenda imposed on the American people, and snidely attacked the Supreme Court during a State of the Union Speech.
