CONGRESS should FINE all the people they have called to testify $15,000 a day if they don't show up

AND ...... I WANT THEIR ASSES IN JAIL ....... #LockThemAllUp and do it now.

I am getting fed up. These traitors are NOT respecting the House of Representatives. If these people were "Democrats"...... you know the Repukes would be fining them and jailing them right and left.

I want STRONG, ADULT politicians,,,,, not little woosy people. Gees, i am teed off !!!!! (but hey, I didn't swear once).

2. Jail and disbarment

The Bar Association should be involved in this too.

9. found very quickly on Wikipedia

In 1857, Congress enacted a law that made "contempt of Congress" a criminal offense against the United States

The criminal offense of "contempt of Congress" sets the penalty at not less than one month nor more than twelve months in jail and a fine of not more than $100,000.

10. Upon conviction.

I am quite aware of contempt of Congress. My question was largely rhetorical.

The penalties you note require a conviction. In the meantime, we can't just fine people $15k/day for the heck of it.
