    The House Oversight Committee filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross over the Trump officials' refusal to turn over documents related to the administration's decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. 

    "President Trump and his aides are not above the law," Committee Chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., said in a statement. "They cannot be allowed to disregard and degrade the authority of Congress to fulfill our core Constitutional legislative and oversight responsibilities."

    The Supreme Court effectively killed the administration's plans to add the question in June, reasoning that the official reason provided was a pretext. 

    The lawsuit was filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C.
