“June 12 (UPI) — The House oversight committee on Wednesday voted to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena regarding the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 census.
The committee approved a contempt resolution, which also included citations for both civil and criminal contempt.
Oversight committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said he unsuccessfully offered to postpone the contempt votes for Barr and Ross if the administration releases a small batch of records from the case that the committee requested.
“Despite more than two months since we issued the subpoenas and more than a week since we told the agencies we were moving to contempt, the agencies have made no commitment or counter-offer regarding any of the critical documents in our subpoenas,” he said…
Cummings said he’s been asking the Commerce Department for the documents for more than a year. “That begs the question: what is being hidden?” he asked.”
This is a good start.
