1. Bush, Out of Office, Could Oppose
Inquiries
by Charlie Savage of the New York Times

When a Congressional committee subpoenaed Harry S. Truman in
1953, nearly a year after he left office, he made a startling claim:
Even though he was no longer president, the Constitution still
empowered him to block subpoenas.

“If the doctrine of separation of powers and the independence of the
presidency is to have any validity at all, it must be equally applicable
to a president after his term of office has expired,” Truman wrote to
the committee.
