Conyers Offers White House Last Chance to Comply with Committee Subpoenas, Files Contempt Report

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 5, 2007

Press release: “Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) offered White House Counsel Fred Fielding yet another opportunity to negotiate terms and agree on compliance with the committee’s subpoenas issued to Joshua Bolten, for documents, and Harriet Miers, for documents and testimony. The two were subpoenaed earlier this year as part of the ongoing U.S. Attorney investigation. Conyers sent a letter to Fielding today, laying out a final proposed compromise solution – the ninth such letter sent. The committee will also file its contempt report with the House clerk when the House begins its legislative business at 2:00 p.m., which would allow a contempt of Congress vote in the full House to move forward if Fielding rejects this final offer.”

  • Chairman John Conyers, filed this contempt of Congress report with the clerk of the House late this afternoon. It is 862 pages, PDF.
