If This Didn’t Exist, No One Would Obey A Subpoena

If House Democrats really want their subpoenas enforced – they will have to enforce them themselves. With #InherentContempt. Lock up those who refuse to appear and respond to subpoenas. If the House jail is too old, then use a local Motel 6. Post a guard outside the door and every 10 minutes, ask, “Are you ready to comply yet?” The Supreme Court approved “inherent contempt” in the early 1800’s and Congress used it into the 1930’s. Time to revive #InherentContempt and #LockThemAllUp. Otherwise, those House subpoenas will be treated like tissue paper.
