There are multiple examples of times that BY LAW executive privilege gives way to legislative investigation. It is your opinion, I am aware, that the
House doesn't actually have the powers invested in it by the Consitution. I am aware that the redress for illegally ignoring Congressional subpoenas
is a finding of Contempt, and, should that happen in this matter, we will likely get to see action by the Federal Court system and an eventual
decision by the Supreme Court whether Congresses powers are actually co-equal or not. I grant you that is a dicey question given the current
political composition of SCOTUS, we shall see.
Every American should be terrified of an Executive who believes that they have no limitations on their actions, or that the Executive Branch is
superior to our other two co-equal branches.
