The House Oversight and Reform Committee will vote on Wednesday on whether to hold Attorney General and Commerce Secretary in contempt for failing to comply with congressional subpoenas.
Committee Chairman (D-Md.) said last week that he would schedule the contempt votes after both of the officials’ agencies did not hand over subpoenaed documents relating to the Trump administration’s efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
“Both Secretary Ross and Attorney General Barr are refusing to comply with duly authorized subpoenas from Congress. Because they are in contempt of Congress, on Wednesday, the Committee will vote to move forward to enforce our bipartisan subpoenas,” Cummings said in a statement Monday.
“I continue to hope that they will change course and begin producing the information we need to do our job under the Constitution,” he added.
Cummings on Monday also released the text of the proposed contempt resolution.
