House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said Tuesday that he would hold off on his committee’s contempt votes for Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross if officials provided certain documents to Congress by Wednesday.

In a letter sent to Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday evening, Cummings was  critical of a DOJ letter sent earlier in the day that warned that the  department would ask President Trump to assert executive privilege over the documents on the census  citizenship question subpoenaed by the committee over the contempt  vote, scheduled for Wednesday morning.
