Rep. Elijah Cummings, chairman House Oversight Committee, warned that the committee will proceed with a contempt of Congress vote next week if Attorney General  Barr and Commerce Secretary Ross don’t provide un-redacted copies of documents pertaining to the 2020 U.S. Census by tomorrow. Cummings and other Democrats have raised concerns about the Trump Administration’s decision to add a question on citizenship to the 2020 Census, and documents that House members have subpoenaed could shed light on that decision. Ross, the House Oversight press release notes, has “testified” that he “added the citizenship question ‘solely’ at the request of DOJ to help enforce the Voting Rights Act, but e-mails show that he began pushing to add the citizenship question as soon as he took office in 2017 and engineered the request from DOJ. Unfortunately, many of these e-mails are heavily redacted.”
