Wilbur Ross Suddenly Remembers: It Was Steve Bannon Who Wanted That Census Question!

He asked the Justice Department if it would say it needed the citizenship information, which it then did. Turns out it was all a lie!

Looks like old Wilbur might be in a pickle!

When Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced in March that he was adding a question about citizenship to the 2020 Census — a move that critics say was motivated by ethnic bias that will produce an undercount favoring Republicans — he stated the move was initiated by the Justice Department in the interests of better enforcement of the Voting Rights Act.

That turned out not to be the way it happened.

It was Ross who initiated the action. He had been thinking about it for months. And he asked the Justice Department if it would say it needed the citizenship information, which it then did.

That was yesterday morning. Here's what we knew by the end of the day:

NEWS: DOJ finally admits that Wilbur Ross talked to Steve Bannon about the decision to demand citizenship info on the . Ross suddenly “recalls” this now, in a new DOJ filing in et al’s suit. It’s no wonder they’ve been fighting Ross’ deposition...

It was white nationalist Steve Bannon's idea! Such a shock!

In a different time, this story would be shocking.
