Blinken To Be Held In Contempt For Defying Subpoena

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) is considering holding Secretary of State Antony Blinken in contempt after he refused to comply with a subpoena for a July 2021 dissent cable from the US Embassy in Kabul.

McCaul has accused the Biden administration of stonewalling his investigation into the Afghanistan withdrawal since 2021.

A House Foreign Affairs Committee aide stated that the State Department did not comply with the subpoena, prompting McCaul to work with the committee to hold Blinken in contempt of Congress.
