“House Oversight Republicans release parts of Kobach, Trump officials’ testimony on census citizenship question”

The Hill:

Republicans on the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Tuesday released new portions of an interview with former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach on his role in adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the ranking member of the panel, made the new portions of the interviews with Kobach and other Trump administration officials public in response to the committee’s vote last week to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt.

“The contempt citation was premature, unnecessary, and designed to advance a partisan goal of influencing ongoing litigation presently before the Supreme Court of the United States,” the Republican report reads.
Jordan also sought to refute allegations surrounding the role of a late GOP redistricting strategist in getting the citizenship question on the census.
