Democrats unleash proposal to snare Bill Barr and Don McGahn as early as next week


While the President is away in Europe, providing rousing, commemorative D-Day speeches, the democrats in the United States are bolstering their “resistance”.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was the first to go nuclear this week, reportedly admitting in private that she was not looking to impeach the President, but rather imprison him.  This escalation is the first time that any prominent politician has broached that particular subject, and will likely be scrutinized mightily in the days to come.

The democrats also moved forward with their plans to enforce the charges of contempt they leveled against Attorney General Bill Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn.

A U.S. House of Representatives committee, seeking to advance probes of President Donald Trump, unveiled a measure on Thursday that would authorize court action to enforce congressional subpoenas of Attorney General William Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn over the Mueller report.

The Rules Committee resolution was expected to go to a vote on the House floor on Tuesday, according to Democratic aides. If approved, the measure would put another aspect of the growing confrontation between Trump and House Democrats before the courts.

The resolution also sets the terms for possible court action by other House committees investigating the president.

The language used was unmistakable.

“We will not allow this president and his administration to turn a blind eye to the rule of law,” said Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern in a statement.

“The Trump administration is waging an unprecedented campaign of stonewalling and obstruction … This resolution will allow Congress to hold the president accountable.”

Options for enforcement include the levying of massive fines against Barr and McGahn, and the possibility of ordering the Capitol Sergeant at Arms to arrest these men, hold them in a seldom-used jail cell in The Capitol, and parading them before the House Judiciary Committee.

The White House has instructed these men, along with several others, to defy Congressional subpoenas regarding the Mueller report.
