House Judiciary Committee weighs holding Lewandowski in contempt

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: CNN

The House Judiciary Committee is preparing to take initial steps to potentially hold former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in contempt over his refusal to answer questions at this week's hearing before the panel, multiple sources tell CNN.

But it is a process that could take weeks: First, a letter is expected to be sent to Lewandowski asking him to answer questions and warning him he can be held in contempt if he doesn't answer. Then, they may offer a contempt resolution, officially notice a committee vote and then hold a vote in committee before any floor action.

Do it. Justice for all.

1. Oh For F**ksakes

 

Charge him with Inherent Contempt and put Lewandowski in jail. All this delaying is the equivalent to offering thoughts and prayers. Until the Dems start enforcing the rule of law, the Trumpsters will continue to disrespect the Constitutional roll of Congress as an equal Branch of Government. They act knowing that they will be getting away with it

3. + a MILLION!

While I understand there's legal steps and procedures...all the hemming&Hawing is really getting on my last fucking NERVE

Even Nixon's Congress was more bi-partisan & ballsy! They knew what was on the line, our entire Constitution...we've surpassed a "crisis" and are now in fucking mortal danger. It's nothing short of a coup

2. You can't defeat bullies if you don't fight back against them.

Otherwise, they'll just continue to push you around and disrespect you at every turn.

Don't just say you're going to do something. DO IT.

6. So tired of the dithering.

It's dithermania when it comes to enforcing subpoenas.

One of my dad's sayings is apt "piss or get off the pot."

8. Keep weighing, keep discussing , keep thinking about it, keep threatening,

Meanwhile they keep replacing judges, keep ignoring laws, keep stealing elections, keep supporting hostile forgien dictators........Sounds like a winning plan.

9. Wasn't there a window of opportunity that was missed?

Nadler should have done this on the day he sat for questioning.

15. It actually would take a couple Fed Marshals, a 5 am wake-up and a set of 'cuffs.

ENFORCE THESE SUBPOENAS.
Give them some teeth!
Get our government back!

13. Just what the hell is there to weigh?

The entire Trump administration is in contempt. Period. There is absolutely nothing to weigh!

Impeach the dirty rotten son-of-a-bitch NOW, and jail the rest of his administration. If the resluglican senators won't vote for impeachment vote them the hell out of office! Let their constituents know what lawless criminals they are!
