Washington, D.C. July 2, 2020 – Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to grant certiorari in Department of Justice v. House Committee on the Judiciary:
“I am disappointed by the Court’s decision to prolong this case further, but I am confident we will prevail. In every administration before this one, DOJ has cooperated with the Judiciary Committee’s requests for grand jury materials relating to investigations of impeachable offenses. Attorney General Barr broke from that practice, and DOJ’s newly invented arguments against disclosure have failed at every level.
“Unfortunately, President Trump and Attorney General Barr are continuing to try to run out the clock on any and all accountability. While I am confident their legal arguments will fail, it is now all the more important for the American people to hold the President accountable at the ballot box in November.”
