White House staffers are paid by and should work to serve the American people, not the President. They take an oath to the Constitution of the United States, not the Oval Office. Congress has the authority - and the responsibility - of oversight. The Executive Branch has the responsibility to ensure the laws of the nation are faithfully executed - that includes responding to requests for information from a CO-EQUAL branch of government, regardless of political party. Democracy dies in darkness and this administration is the least transparent in recent memory - contrary to claims made by the chief executive.
