House will vote June 11th to hold Barr in contempt over Mueller report

The House will vote June 11 to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, according to a Democratic aide.

The floor action follows a party-line vote last month in the Judiciary Committee. The panel brought forth the contempt citation against Barr after the attorney general ignored its subpoena for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s full, unredacted report and underlying investigatory material.

Democratic leaders had previously discussed combining multiple contempt citations into a single package or bringing them to the floor individually but at the same time. They were hoping to avoid multiple days of floor action on contempt and distract from their legislative agenda.

It was not immediately clear if that was still the plan given that no other committee citations other than the one Judiciary approved for Barr have been reported out of committee.
