Trump’s return to the Capitol sets the tone for the news week in the United States – Radio Florida de Cuba

WASHINGTON, June 15 – The US House of Representatives’ vote against Attorney General Merrick Garland, and former President Donald Trump’s return to the Capitol, is on the news agenda here in the week ending today.

On Wednesday, a 216-207 House vote to hold Garland in contempt of Congress after he refused to provide the requested audio recording of President Joe Biden’s interview with special prosecutor Robert Hoare captured media attention.

Although the vote promoted by Republicans meant formally censuring the prosecutor, it had no tangible results, as such actions are referred to the Department of Justice (DOJ), which considers whether they merit prosecution.

The Justice Department announced Friday to Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson that it will not file criminal contempt of Congress charges against Attorney General Garland, according to a letter circulated in the media.

At that time, the special counsel’s report sparked a political storm in Washington after he refused to prosecute the current president, describing him as “a sympathetic old man with good intentions and a bad memory.”

Trump’s return to the Capitol after his supporters’ rampage on January 6, 2021, was another poignant piece of news of the week. Less than five months before his rematch with Biden, the former governor met with Republicans in Congress.

The pole held private meetings with members of the House of Representatives a few blocks from the Capitol building and then with members of his party in the Senate.

He stated that his meeting with the Senate was “excellent” and that the Republican Party enjoyed “tremendous unity” and “common sense.” Furthermore, he commented that he sees the same thing in the House of Representatives.
