Facing ‘Enforcement Action,’ William Barr Decides To Deliver Mueller Files To House Intel Committee

Facing imminent “enforcement action” after defying a Congressional subpoena, President Donald Trump’s Attorney General Wiliam Barr has decided to cooperate with House Intelligence Committee and deliver unredacted files from the Mueller report.

According to The Hill, the House is postponing taking action to enforce a subpoena for Attorney General William Barr to turn over materials generated in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation after the Justice Department agreed to begin producing the foreign intelligence and counterintelligence files sought by the committee.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a statement that a committee business meeting Wednesday to vote on what he has described as an “enforcement action” has been canceled and that the Justice Department has agreed to begin producing the documents by the end of the week.

“The Department of Justice has accepted our offer of a first step towards compliance with our subpoena, and this week will begin turning over to the Committee twelve categories of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence materials as part of an initial rolling production,” Schiff said. “That initial production should be completed by the end of next week.”

“As a result of the Department’s acceptance, the business meeting has been postponed. The Committee’s subpoena will remain in effect, and will be enforced should the Department fail to comply with the full document request,” Schiff said.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
