Congressman Rooney’s statement on “no” vote on partisan resolution to hold AG Barr and Sec. Ross in criminal contempt
Today, Congressman Francis Rooney voted against a resolution to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Jr. in criminal contempt of Congress for failing to respond to subpoenas issued by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
These subpoenas were issued on April 2, 2019 in relation to the addition of a citizenship question on the census, which was ruled upon by the Supreme Court on June 27, 2019. No further action is warranted.
Further, the administration has submitted over 31,000 pages of documents and Commerce Secretary Ross publicly testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform for over 6 hours in March.
