Blinken Faces Contempt Of Congress For Ignoring GOP Subpoenas

Secretary of State Antony Blinken may face a contempt of Congress charge as his office has ignored multiple subpoenas for documents from the Republican-led House Oversight Committee regarding President Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to a report.

House Oversight Chairman Rep. Mike McCaul, R-Texas, has claimed that Blinken and the State Department have missed several deadlines to provide the documents in recent months. McCaul has threatened to hold Blinken in contempt if he continues to refuse to provide the documents.

“The Department is now in violation of its legal obligation to produce these documents and must do so immediately,” McCaul said in a statement on Monday.
