"Rep. Issa Threatens Contempt For EPA"

"House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Wednesday threatened to hold the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in contempt of Congress if officials fail to turn over subpoenaed communications with the White House.

The EPA has not provided Issa with the documents requested in November, nor has it asserted executive privilege over them.

'The subpoena calls for you to deliver the documents. You have not done so,' Issa told EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy at a hearing. 'Are you prepared to deliver the documents or provide an item-by-item privilege log of executive privilege?'"

Timothy Cama reports for The Hill June 25, 2014.
