Abstract

The following article attempts to conceptualize United States v. Nixon and the strengthened doctrine of Executive Privilege it beget. This is accomplished through the examination of Executive Privilege's historic roots, the events surrounding the Nixon case, the hallmark ruling itself, the shadowy impact upon subsequent administrations, and the tension of secrecy and accountability necessitated by the doctrine. Finally, it concludes with alternatives that would minimize the dangerous potential that exists under the current permutation of the doctrine.
