The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Wednesday doubled down on its refusal to comply with a subpoena issued by the House Oversight and Reform Committee for an official’s testimony on the Trump administration’s efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The Democratic-led committee had requested that John Gore, a deputy assistant attorney general in the DOJ’s civil rights division, testify about the citizenship question. But the Justice Department said because lawmakers will still not allow a DOJ attorney to be in the room with Gore during his deposition, the official will not comply with the request.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We appreciate the offer made in the Committee’s April 10, 2019, letter to permit Department counsel to be present in a separate room during the deposition, but such an accommodation would not address the Department’s need to have counsel present in the deposition room to assist Mr. Gore in connection with the deposition,” the DOJ letter sent Wednesday reads. “We are disappointed that the Committee remains unwilling to permit Department counsel to represent the interests of the Executive Branch in the deposition of a senior Department official.”

  1. Typical Democratic committee determined to undermine anything and everything the Trump administration is doing. The question has been on the census from the early 1800’s till the mid 1900’s. What is wrong with the question. It does not ask if you are here illegally, just what is your citizenship. They should also add do you hold dual citizenship and with what country. Again nothing wrong with that, it’s just a question. Answer it. If they are afraid to answer then they are up to no good and should not be counted.
