The leader of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee indicated Tuesday he’s prepared to subpoena a Justice Department official who played a key role in the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 census after he skipped an appearance before the panel.
John Gore, the acting head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, was scheduled to appear at a hearing before the Oversight and Government Reform Committee to discuss the Census Bureau’s progress ahead of the 2020 census.
But Gore did not attend, frustrating Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Congress, and more importantly, the people we represent, would benefit from his testimony and appearance. But he isn’t here, which is disappointing to say the least,” Gowdy said. “Should he decide to show up, there is a seat waiting for him. If he does not decide to show up, then we will have another opportunity to quiz him about some of the issues that have already been raised.”
Gowdy later suggested he would issue a subpoena to compel Gore to appear before the committee.
“He’s coming to talk at some point or another whether he wants to or not,” the South Carolina Republican said.
