The Department of Justice is refusing to hand over subpoenaed audio recordings. Will this end with Attorney General Merrick Garland being held in contempt of Congress?

From Fox News. The Justice Department will not produce subpoenaed audio recordings of former Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interview with President Biden to House Republicans, putting Attorney General Merrick Garland at risk of being held in contempt of Congress.

House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, have threatened to hold Garland in contempt of Congress over the Justice Department’s failure to produce the records. Last month, they set Monday, April 8, as the deadline for Garland to comply.

The Justice Department did meet the GOP-imposed deadline to respond but notified lawmakers it would not turn over the audio files of Hur’s interview about Biden’s alleged improper retention of classified documents from his time as a senator and vice president.

“The Department is concerned that the Committees’ particular focus on continuing to demand information that is cumulative of information we already gave you — what the President and Mr. Hur’s team said in the interview indicates that the Committees’ interests may not be in receiving information in service of legitimate oversight or investigatory functions, but to serve political purposes that should have no role in the treatment of law enforcement files,” Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte wrote in a letter to Jordan and Comer Monday. …

But Comer and Jordan last month warned Garland that if he did not turn over the audio recordings, the “committees will consider taking further action, such as the invocation of contempt of Congress proceedings.”

Comer and Jordan subpoenaed the Justice Department for a transcript of Hur’s interview with Biden and audio recordings.

Just hours before Hur was scheduled to testify publicly last month, the DOJ produced for the committees two redacted transcripts of Hur’s interviews with Biden.

The Justice Department did not, however, produce the audio recordings of the interviews. …

“The Biden Administration does not get to determine what Congress needs and does not need for its oversight of the executive branch. It’s curious the Biden Administration is refusing to release the audio of President Biden’s interview with the Special Counsel after releasing the transcript,” Comer said in a statement Monday evening. …

Our banana Republic is a sham, being familiar with the Bahamas government if these characters were pulling their stunts there, they would find themselves “dethroned”
Please LORD JESUS call out corruption at it’s roots.
Thank YOU, amen
