'No choice' but to proceed with contempt vote: AOC

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez said "we have no choice" but to move forward on a vote to find Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for withholding Census documents.

R President Donald Trump asserted executive privilege on Wednesday to keep under wraps documents related to adding a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. Census, defying a U.S. House committee in another move to stonewall Democrats' multiple investigations of the president.

The move came minutes before the House Oversight Committee convened to vote on holding two of his Cabinet members in contempt of Congress over the census question.

Democrats on the committee were angered after receiving a letter from the Justice Department saying Trump had asserted executive privilege over the documents.
