House Oversight Votes To Hold Bill Barr In Contempt Of Congress

On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee voted to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress after they refused to cooperate with the investigation into how the Trump administration is rigging the 2020 Census against Democrats and people of color.

House Oversight chairman Elijah Cummings released a statement prior to the vote and said that the Justice Department and the Commerce Department “have made no commitment or counter-offer regarding any of the critical documents in our subpoenas.”

The Trump administration invoked executive privilege over the Census documents ahead of the vote.

The Trump administration has come under fire after attempting to add a question to the Census interrogating people about citizenship status.

The Oversight Committee’s investigation seeks to determine why and how this change to the Census was approved.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to decide whether the administration can include the citizenship question in the coming weeks.
