Robert HurThe Department of Justice rejected requests from House Republicans for the audio recordings of special counsel Robert Hur’s interviews with President Joe Biden, with department officials balking at GOP lawmakers' threat to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress if they don't comply.

The Justice Department contended in a letter obtained by USA TODAY that it has already given House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan, R-Ohio and House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., all the information the GOP needs and that the department has fully cooperated.

Their threat to hold Garland in contempt, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Felipe Uriarte wrote to Jordan and Comer on Monday, “is difficult to explain in terms of any lack of information" based "the Department’s actual conduct.”
