NEW: As the House Oversight Committee prepares to hold Barr and Ross in contempt on Wednesday, the Department of Justice issued a letter to Chairman Cummings this afternoon.
DOJ says if Democrats insist on going forward, the department will be obligated to advise Trump to assert executive privilege “with respect to certain subpoenaed documents."
The best course of action for the lawmakers, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote, is to delay the contempt vote until Trump can make a decision over whether to invoke privilege. John Gore will also not be permitted to testify without counsel present, Boyd said.

I'll have more about this in a story coming up for @CourthouseNews.
