Rep. Connolly confirms that they will jail, disbar, and fine Trump officials if they don’t show up for the witch trials. The disbarment is new.
Adam Schiff wants to restore a century-old law of inherent contempt and fine each Trump official $25,000 a day until they show up for their fraudulent “oversight” committees.
They are clearly abusing their power.
Schifty prefers fines to jail time, but only because it’s quicker and more efficient.
Judiciary Committee’s Rep. Madeleine Dean said jail time “can’t be off the table” for Trump administration officials held in contempt.
Other Democrats like Elijah Cummings want to withhold their salaries.
The President already tolerated more than two years of an abusive probe, was found not guilty, and they won’t let it go. They are desperate for power — all the power.
THE ATTACKS KEEP COMING
The latest attack from the Democrats claims Donald Trump and Jared Kushner violated the Presidential Records Act and Federal Records Act by “intentionally failing” to keep written accounts of their meetings with foreign government officials including Putin, Kim Jong Un, and top Saudi officials. They want to imprison them for that too.
Other issues have arisen. The NY Times claims the White House asked Don McGahn twice to say he didn’t think he obstructed justice but he refused. We don’t know if that is true. The NY Times says they confirmed it with their usual anonymous sources.
Then there is former top FBI official James Baker who spoke publicly at the Brookings Institute. He said the probe was started for “lawful, legitimate reasons,” and he is sick of all the BS conspiracies. He claims the probe was apolitical.
“The Papadopoulos information is what triggered us going down this path,” Baker said. “… It would have been a dereliction of our duty not to investigate this information.”
How could that nonsense with Papadopoulos be considered grounds for such a bloated investigation?
