Trump asserts executive privilege over census materials as Dems weigh contempt against Barr, Ross

Trump asserts executive privilege over census materials as Dems weigh contempt against Barr, Ross | 12 June 2019 | The Justice Department said Wednesday that President Trump is asserting executive privilege over documents related his administration's decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, as House Democrats weigh a contempt resolution against Attorney General William Barr and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross over the controversy. Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, said the panel will move ahead with plans Wednesday to vote on holding Barr and Ross in contempt, accusing them of withholding documents. But he said a vote would be postponed until the afternoon, so lawmakers could digest the letter from the Justice Department about Trump invoking executive privilege.
