Conyers Will File Contempt Report Over White House Subpoenas

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.

"I have written to you on eight previous occasions attempting to reach agreement on this matter," Conyers writes. "As we submit the Committee's contempt report to the full House, I am writing one more time to seek to resolve this issue on a cooperative basis."
