On the advice of the Justice Department, President Trump has asserted executive privilege over subpoenaed documents related to the House Oversight Committee’s investigation of the Census citizenship question.

The big picture: The House Oversight Committee is preparing to vote to hold Attorney General Bill Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt Wednesday for refusing to turn over subpoenaed materials. The committee is investigating whether the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census was politically motivated, a controversy that could have major implications for future federal funding and redistricting.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ross has defended the citizenship question as necessary to enhance the 1965 Voting Rights Act, despite the Census Bureau’s own analysis that it could scare households with non-citizens into low response rates.

What they’re saying:Β Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said he would delay the contempt vote until this afternoon so that members of the committee could read DOJ’s letter, but he slammed the administration for its “blanket defiance.”

    Illegal aliens don’t have ANY say in a vote, follow the rules, become a citizen and then you get a vote. Not until then.

      Definitely only American citizens are allowed to vote.

    The corrupted Democrats are nothing more than a cesspool of idiots, who cannot come forward to face the American people, while telling us that there’s no such thing as 11 million illegals in the United States of America, simple because Barack Hussein Obama deported 3.6 million illegals between 2009 thru 2011, in which was approximately 10% percent of the load. Now we have already surpassed 50 million “illegal criminal aliens” while the Democrats are the main sponsor, because they need illegals as their voters.

    The corrupted Democrats seeks to partake in the destruction of the United States by using illegals and muslim religious motherfuckers from the so-called religion of peace and tolerance, and sooner than later, they all will taste their spilled blood in the biggest civil war ever on the face of planet Earth.
