House GOP May Hold AG Garland in Contempt Over Biden Probe Files

The House Oversight Committee is thinking about taking action against Attorney General Merrick Garland for not giving them audio recordings of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interview with President Joe Biden. House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is leading the charge to hold Garland in contempt of Congress, as Garland didn’t follow a subpoena asking for the audio files. Comer believes it’s essential to have the recordings to investigate President Biden’s handling of classified documents and suitability as the President.

The resolution to hold Garland in contempt of Congress will be discussed on Thursday at 11 a.m. The House Judiciary Committee is also working on their own plan to hold Garland accountable. Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) has introduced a resolution of her own to make Garland answer for his actions, using a different process than the Judiciary Committee.

If Garland is convicted, he could face a fine and up to one year in prison. Not long ago, Peter Navarro, who worked in the Trump administration, was fined $9,500 and sentenced to four months in prison after being held in contempt of Congress for not following subpoenas from the Jan. 6 committee. This shows that defying Congress can have serious consequences.
