United States v. Nixon
The US v. Nixon case took place in 1974. A federal judge ordered Nixon to turn over audio tapes of recorded conversations about a break in at the offices of the Democratic National Committee in D.C.
The US government prosecuted Nixon and requested the case and evidence against Nixon to be heard by the US Surpreme Court.
Nixon claimed that executive power allowed him to withhold the conversation tapes from the other government branches.
Richard Nixon was the President at the time of the case.
Was President Nixon above rule of law because of executive privileges?
President Nixon was not above the law. And did not have executive privilege. He could not refuse to produce the tapes for the court.
I believe that I am above the law. And that since I am the President, I have executive privilleges. I do not need to produce the tapes.
The court will rule in favor of the United States, and againts President Richard Nixon.
