Pelosi: House will vote next week to hold Barr and Ross in criminal contempt over census

Source: The Hill


BY MIKE LILLIS - 07/11/19 12:50 PM EDT

The House will vote next week to hold a pair of top administration officials in criminal contempt of Congress for withholding information related to the census, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Thursday.

"Next week, the full House will vote on a resolution of criminal contempt for Attorney General [William] Barr and [Commerce] Secretary [Wilbur] Ross so we can enforce our subpoenas and get the facts," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) later clarified that the vote will be next Tuesday.

"We will hold this Admin accountable for continued obstruction & oppose efforts to undermine the census," Hoyer tweeted.

3. That type of two-sided division

plays into Republicans' hands, by undermining one of our positions while supporting another. They are both important. We will not throw up our hands and blame ourselves for these problems that the GOP created.

2. Good News

This is perhaps Congress' strongest and most airtight hand.

Don't compromise, don't accept partial compliance. GO FOR THE JUGULAR! It's now or never.

11. what about the whataboutism?

Speaker Pelosi announces criminal contempt investigations into one of the numerous obscene things this administration has done, and gets attacked in on-line forums because many things remain unaddressed.

yawn, i guess.

21. Indeed. The whatboutisms on DU will begin to run thick as the election grows near

Amusingly and predictably, they seem to peak during normal working hours in St. Petersburg.

15. This also needs to be used as part of an ethics complaint as part of

an effort to disbarr Barr.
