... House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that the House of Representatives will vote next week on criminal contempt for Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross over their refusal to answer questions about internal discussions surrounding the citizenship question.

"Next week the full house will vote on a resolution of criminal contempt for Attorney General Barr and Secretary Ross so we can enforce our subpoenas and get the facts," Pelosi said. This comes after the House Oversight Committee voted last month to hold Barr and Ross in contempt over the dispute.

Pelosi, when asked if Trump can add the citizenship question by executive action, replied: "I don't know" ...

5. Pelosi's full quote

"Well, I don't know. There's an injunction that he just has to overcome. It's an injunction against putting citizenship on the ballot. We have been printing the census forms. June 30th was the deadline. So we're printing the forms. We fully expect the census to go forward. The president's effort to put the citizenship question on the census will continue to be challenged in court. The Supreme Court destroyed the administration's argument that the question was needed to support the Voting Rights Act - including their rationale was based on a contrived pretext. Next week the House will vote on a resolution of criminal contempt on attorney general Barr and Wilbur Ross so we can enforce the subpoenas and get the facts."
