DOJ Requests House GOP to ‘Steer Clear of Conflict’

The U.S. Department of Justice has responded to allegations from House Republicans that it failed to fully comply with a subpoena related to the investigation into President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents.

Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte, who oversees congressional affairs, communicated to House Oversight and Accountability Chair James Comer and House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan that the Justice Department has indeed provided all requested materials.

In recent communications, Comer and Jordan had expressed their intent to initiate “contempt of Congress proceedings” against Attorney General Merrick Garland if their demands for unredacted audio and transcripts from interviews conducted by special counsel Robert Hur were not met.

These interviews were part of Hur’s investigation into the mishandling of classified documents by President Biden. Uriarte’s letter challenges the claims made by Comer and Jordan, stating that the Justice Department has complied with the February subpoena and that the provided materials should suffice to address the committees’ concerns.

He suggested that the dissatisfaction from the committees might stem not from a lack of information but rather from the nature of the information received, which may not support the concerns they initially articulated.

Uriarte further emphasized the need for cooperation and urged the House committees to “avoid conflict rather than seek it,” highlighting a preference for resolution over confrontation. This stance comes in light of testimony from Hur himself, who appeared before the House Judiciary Committee last month.

During his testimony, Hur asserted his impartiality and thoroughness in the investigation, stating that his findings and the subsequent report were a true reflection of the evidence without any unfair disparagement of President Biden.

This ongoing dispute underscores a tense interaction between the legislative and executive branches, with serious implications for oversight and the handling of classified material investigations.

The Justice Department’s insistence on having fulfilled its obligations according to the subpoena now sets the stage for further responses from House Republicans, who may need to reassess their strategy moving forward based on the materials they have received and the legal arguments presented by the Department.
