JUST IN: House Judiciary Committee Takes Steps to Hold Merrick Garland in Contempt...

•,by Cristina Laila

Republicans will hold US Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt over the Justice Department's refusal to hand over audio recordings of Joe Biden's interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur.

The GOP-led House Judiciary Committee on Monday released a report recommending that the full House of Representatives hold Garland in contempt for defying a congressional subpoena.

The House Oversight and Judiciary Committees will meet on Thursday morning to consider a resolution to hold Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress.

"The House Oversight and Judiciary Committees issued lawful subpoenas to Attorney General Garland for the audio recordings of President Biden's interview with Special Counsel Hur, yet he continues to defy our subpoenas," House Oversight Chairman James Comer said in a statement Monday. "These audio recordings are important to our investigation of President Biden's willful retention of classified documents and his fitness to be President of the United States."

Comer added: "There must be consequences for refusing to comply with lawful congressional subpoenas and we will move to hold Attorney General Garland in contempt of Congress."

House Oversight Chairman James Comer last month released a statement after the DOJ rebuffed his committee's request for the audio recordings.

"The Biden Administration does not get to determine what Congress needs and does not need for its oversight of the executive branch," Comer said. "The American people deserve to hear the actual audio of President Biden's answers to Special Counsel Hur."

Comer said it is "curious" that the Biden Regime is refusing to release audio of Biden's interview with Hur after releasing the transcript.

What we do know is that Joe Biden lied about Robert Hur raising the issue about his dead son Beau.

The Justice Department previously defended not bringing charges against Biden because he's a "sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory."
