House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Tuesday the White House cannot claim executive privilege to redact information from special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

Nadler tweeted that President Donald Trump's administration waived "any claims of executive privilege covering the material in Mueller's report" on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election "long ago, when White House officials agreed to cooperate with the special counsel investigation."

The congressman was responding to a report from CNN that claimed White House lawyers "expect" to review Mueller's report before the attorney general submits it to Congress. Both the Justice Department and the White House declined to comment to CNN about the story.

"The law here is very clear," he tweeted. "When he finishes his work, special counsel Mueller is required to report to the Attorney General, who is required to report to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees."

Nadler added, "There is no provision in the regulations for White House review, and it would be unacceptable for President Trump — the subject, if not the target of the special counsel's work — to edit the report before it goes public."
