The House Committee on Oversight, along with Accountability Chairman James Comer, have moved to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress over his failure to comply with a subpoena.

The markup was announced on Monday and it has been scheduled for Tuesday. 

According to Comer’s office, Garland was served with subpoenas by the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees on February 27th “for records, including transcripts, notes, video, and audio files, related to Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation of President Joe Biden’s willful mishandling of classified information.”

Comer’s office also stated that Garland has still not provided the audio files of Biden’s interview with the Special Counsel. 

“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,” said Comer in a statement. 

“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. 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.”
