The United States v. Nixon
The United States v. Nixon was the Supreme Court’s first definitive ruling on the issue of executive privilege. It denied President Nixon’s claim and ruled that an absolute executive privilege does not exist. However, it also recognized that a limited executive privilege does have a constitutional basis, because the president needs to be able to communicate freely with advisers to carry out the duties of the office.
