The House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote for Wednesday, May 8, to decide whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for not turning over a fully unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s meddling in the 2016 elections.

The committee’s announcement comes during a rift between House Democrats and the attorney general regarding the handling of the Mueller report and Barr’s decision not to appear for a scheduled hearing before the committee, prompting questions about how much information the Justice Department is required to provide to Congress.
