Democrat-Led Committee to Try and Hold AG Barr in Contempt

A Democratic House Committee led by liberal Elijah Cummings has decided to hold a vote to hold the pro-Trump Attorney General Barr in contempt. As The Blaze reports
 

In an early Friday morning press release, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said that his committee plans to vote next week to hold Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilber Ross in contempt of Congress if they did not produce key documents related to an administration plan to add a citizenship question on the 2020 census.

“We gave Attorney General Barr and Secretary Ross every opportunity to produce the documents the Committee needs for our investigation, but rather than cooperate, they have decided that they would rather be held in contempt of Congress,” a Friday morning statement from Cummings said. “They produced none of the documents we asked for, they made no counter-offers regarding these documents, and they seem determined to continue the Trump Administration’s cover-up.”…

A Department of Commerce spokesperson responded with a statement accusing the committee of an attempt to interfere with ongoing litigation as the Supreme Court wrestles with the census question. 

“In its zeal to influence the Supreme Court’s decision, the committee is poised to hold Secretary Ross in contempt,” the statement said. “Holding the secretary in contempt is an empty stunt, and it shows that the committee is simply interested in playing politics.”

Another empty stunt by bitter House Liberals designed to undermine the authority of President Trump and the Supreme Court.
