House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said he plans to bring a resolution to the floor for a vote. The resolution is to hold Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress.

“Next Tuesday, I will bring a resolution to the House Floor forcing Attorney General Barr and former White House Counsel McGahn to comply with the Congressional subpoenas that have been duly issued by the House Judiciary Committee.
