Steophan - when you first heard that Nixon claimed that he didn't have to turn over the White House tapes, and his DOJ argued that he had absolute executive privilege, did you assume that Nixon was in the right and he would win in court?

ETA: Also, when the Supreme Court ruled that demands by Congress for information must relate to a legislative purpose, did you assume that that controversy was related to Congress seeking documents or testimony from a co-equal branch of government? Do you know the context of that court case?
