Today, Congressman Rudy Yakym (IN-02) released the following statement after voting to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with lawfully issued Congressional subpoenas and release the audio recordings of President Biden’s special counsel interviews.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report raised alarming concerns about President Biden’s careless mishandling of classified documents and his ability to do his job as Commander-in-Chief. Now, instead of giving Americans the transparency they deserve, Attorney General Garland is trying to cover for his boss.

“Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and I will always fight to hold this Administration accountable and to get Americans answers.”
