House panel threatens contempt of Congress vote against Barr, Ross

by Reuters  |  Published on June 4, 2019

The top U.S. law enforcement officer and the Commerce secretary will face a contempt of Congress vote unless they hand over documents by Thursday on efforts to put a citizenship question on the 2020 census, the chairman of a House of Representatives panel warned on Monday.

Representative Elijah Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, sent letters to Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross warning them they had until Thursday to comply with the subpoena after having failed for two months to produce the documents.

Barr also faces a contempt vote next week by the full House on whether he failed to comply with a subpoena seeking the full, unredacted report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The House panel’s move comes as the Supreme Court is expected to soon render judgment on a lawsuit over the census issue.
