AG Garland REFUSES Subpoena: House Moves to Hold in Contempt

by M Winger at

House members aren’t messing around anymore when it comes to accountability.

They’re preparing to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt for refusing to cooperate with a subpoena.

What a surprise.

The House Oversight Committee demanded audio files from a special counsel interview with Biden, but Garland said no dice.

That rat loves to drag his feet when truth is demanded from him.

Washington Examiner reports:

The House Oversight Committee is considering moving to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress.

Garland refused to provide audio files of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interview with President Joe Biden despite a subpoena from the committee. In response, House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is moving to hold him in contempt of Congress.

“The House Oversight and Judiciary Committees issued lawful subpoenas to Attorney General Garland for the audio recordings of President Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Hur, yet he continues to defy our subpoenas,” Comer wrote.

“These audio recordings are important to our investigation of President Biden’s willful retention of classified documents and his fitness to be President of the United States,” he added. “There must be consequences for refusing to comply with lawful congressional subpoenas and we will move to hold Attorney General Garland in contempt of Congress.”

The markup for the resolution to hold Garland in contempt of court will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday. The Washington Examiner previously exclusively reported that the House Judiciary Committee was aiming to hold Garland in contempt of Congress.
