Nadler has asked for a meeting with DOJ five times over the past six weeks
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) released the following statement in response to the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) request to meet on Wednesday, the day the Committee is scheduled to markup a contempt citation for Attorney General William Barr’s failure to comply with a subpoena for the full, unredacted Mueller report:
“I am pleased that the Department of Justice has agreed to meet with my staff tomorrow—and not Wednesday afternoon, as originally proposed by DOJ.
“It remains vital that the Committee obtain access to the full, unredacted report and the underlying materials. At the moment, our plans to consider holding Attorney General Barr accountable for his failure to comply with our subpoena still stand. My hope is that we make concrete progress at tomorrow’s meeting towards resolving this dispute. The Committee remains committed to finding a reasonable accommodation.”
