US v Nixon (1974)
Q: "relevant and admissible evidence"
--
* POTUS before and since test the Q. Oyez summarizes findings of law in opinion that are pertain to current congressional searches for inculpatory evidence of "high crimes and misdemeanors" and trivial litigation of sundry subpoenas for public and private records:
The Court held that neither the doctrine of separation of powers, nor the generalized need for confidentiality of high-level communications, without more, can sustain an absolute, unqualified, presidential privilege. The Court granted that there was a limited executive privilege in areas of military or diplomatic affairs, but gave preference to "the fundamental demands of due process of law in the fair administration of justice."
