Frederick Hill, a spokesman for Issa, said in response to Cummings’ statements that although the draft contempt report dealt with the wider universe of documents, the final contempt report will be narrowed to just the post-Feb. 4 documents.
“This opinion-based memo is based on outdated and inaccurate characterizations of the committee’s positions. The committee has clearly articulated that any final contempt resolution would focus on the failure to produce documents from after February 4, 2011, and not on documents created during the criminal investigation,” Hill said.
