Attorney General William Barr & Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross have refused to comply with legally valid subpoenas issued by the House Oversight Committee related to the 2020 Census. They should be held in contempt and House leadership to pursue enforcement of those subpoenas in federal court.
This is nothing more than an attempt by Democrats to score political points. It wastes valuable floor time in the House of Representatives, and precious taxpayer dollars by pursuing what will be a lengthy battle in federal court where an outcome in favor of the House is far from certain.
