House votes to hold AG in contemptHouse Republicans voted Wednesday to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress in a dramatic escalation of the GOP’s broader war against the Biden administration's Justice Department.

The lower chamber voted along party lines, 216-207, to hold Garland in contempt for withholding the audio recording of President Joe Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur over his mishandling of classified documents. Garland is now the third attorney general in U.S. history to be held in contempt.

Rep. David Joyce, R-Ohio, was the only Republican lawmaker to break off from his party colleagues on Wednesday. In a statement after the vote, Joyce said, "As a former prosecutor, I cannot in good conscience support a resolution that would further politicize our judicial system to score political points."
