Quick Glance: House rejects GOP bid to fine Garland until Biden audio release
  • The House rejected a GOP attempt to fine Attorney General Merrick Garland $10,000 a day until he hands over the audio of President Joe Biden's interview in his classified documents case.

  • In a 204-210 vote, the House turned down a Republican resolution that would have imposed the fine, effectively rebuffing the latest GOP lawmakers' effort to assert their enforcement powers.

  • Despite the House holding Garland in contempt earlier this year, the Justice Department stated that Garland would not be prosecuted, citing the agency's practice of not prosecuting officials who don't comply with subpoenas due to a claim of executive privilege.

  • The Republican inquiry began with the release of Hur's report in February, which found evidence that Biden willfully retained and shared highly classified information when he was a private citizen. However, the special counsel concluded that no criminal charges were warranted.
