CBS News senior White House and political correspondent Ed O’Keefe asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday if the White House declining to assert executive privilege for witnesses subpoenaed before the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol could be “opening potentially a Pandora’s box.”

“Has there been any concern or conversation about what might happen one day when the shoe’s on the other foot and the other party says there’s an extraordinary circumstance and they want to hand over documents that were deemed privileged by the Biden administration,” asked O’Keefe during the White House press briefing.
