Republican’s shifting stance on contempt


Late last night, the Department of
Justice wrote to inform us that they will ignore our subpoena for the
unredacted Mueller Report. The real obstruction of justice is what Democrats are trying to do to the Attorney General. These guys are bound and determined to
go after the Attorney General and to go after President Trump and not going to focus on what we need to do to help the country. The Attorney General has not only failed to produce all the relevant documents, he has misled this Congress and thereby prevented us from uncovering the truth. This is about the Constitution and it’s about Congress’ mandate to do oversight over both the
executive and judicial branches of government. Oversight is an institutional
obligation to ensure against abuse of power. Subpoena authority is a vital tool
of that oversight. It’s a fundamental tenant and a strength of our democracy that Congress has given not just the power, but the responsibility to exercise
its duty of executive over the oversight of the executives No Justice Department is above the law And no Justice Department is above the Constitution. The only recourse left for the House is to continue seeking the truth and to hold Attorney General in contempt of Congress. They’d rather play politics than uphold Congress’ right to investigate. Today’s vote is about
accountability. Every member of Congress should do their constitutional duty and hold the Attorney General in contempt today. All we have asked for is the
documents, all we want are the facts. And we have been thwarted. Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States the highest judicial enforcement officer of the United States has been in contempt is in contempt and is
showing contempt for the Congress and the responsibility under the
Constitution.
