Recently, it was announced that the House Democrats plan to hold a full House vote to formally hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress. Then the House Oversight Committee revealed that it will be holding Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt. It seems that House Dems have had enough.
Congressman Steny Hoyer is even hinting that next Tuesday’s contempt hearing could include “every name who has either refused to respond to a congressional subpoena or request for documents, or who has been instructed by the president not to respond.” The list of people potentially included is insanely long.
The following people could all be facing contempt of Congress charges as early as next week based on this criteria: William Barr, Wilbur Ross, Steve Mnuchin, Don McGahn, Annie Donaldson, Hope Hicks, and more.
Next Tuesday is going to be the first step in the House Democrats really flexing their muscles. The House holding several of Trump’s cabinet members and associates in contempt of Congress will be a game changer. The punitive results are yet to be laid on the table, but at the very least this will make for some interesting movement in Congress.
