Did she payoff a pornstar illegally?
Defy a subpoena?
Run fraudulent 'businesses '?
Defraud a children's cancer charity?

I never read these things but that has to be best bsck page title ever. I think I did a good Hitler vs. Nero one. I figured the 'Orange Bloated Pedophile Russian Sekrit Agent" thing went without saying.

Jail them. It will be a teaching moment.

I have also heard that fining those who defy subpoenas was also an option. If someone is jailed by the HOR for defying a subpoena, must they be released at the end of that session of congress? What about fines? If the fine isn't paid by the end of the session, does the fine go away?

Good luck with that, I am sure the Honorable Paul D. Irving will enjoy trying to "arrest" people like Barr and State Department officials who are found in Contempt for asserting Executive Privilege, he did such a bang up job arresting Eric Holder for Contempt of Congress that he will surely follow up that success...

How is it sour grapes? The Sergeant at Arms of the House has limited jurisdiction in the District, and off Capitol grounds his ability to arrest people and bring them to the House is di minimus.

Both Holder and now Barr have amply proven the limitations of inherent contempt and while a girl can dream, Sgt at Arms Irving isn't going to be arresting anyone.

Jail them, and fine them.

To paraphrase Stalin, "how many battalions do the House Democrats command"?

How many does Trump command?

Those are political limitations, not legal ones. See Jurney v. MacCracken if you really don't get it.

Arresting high level offenders like Barr would set off a constitutional, political, and legal firestorm. I don't think too many people would shed a tear if Gordon Sondland spent a few days in the clink.

Remember this when tighty righties use "we must enforce our laws" to justify inhumanity and cruelty

The Barr contempt vote was one of the most blatantly ridiculous things I've ever seen.

When Democrats brought in legal experts to testify the gist was Democrats held Barr in contempt because he wouldn't break the law and release the full unredacted Mueller report.

These were Barr's options:

A. Break the law and release the full report to congress

B. Refuse to break the law and be held in contempt by congress

Who did the redactions?

Oh, ya, Barr and the Justice Department!

Among those redactions were the names of Facebook groups used by Russian officials to push propaganda during the campaign.

The more complete report given exclusively to congress had 7 lines and 2 partial sentences redacted.

The contempt vote was a sick political joke. You know, it's OK to call out Democrat transgressions. They are not as pure as driven snow, nor are they always right and the GOP always wrong.

I understand the distinction and thanks for the cite to a staple of upper division PoliSci classes, do you understand the actual limitations on the Sgt. at Arms ability to arrest someone who is not on Capitol Grounds?

Unless they willingly surrender themselves to the House, the Honorable Paul D. Irving isn't going to be arresting anyone in the District itself.
