A top Democrat just announced a horrifying scheme to jail top Trump officials
Democrats will stop at nothing to take down Trump and everybody close to him.
They are even willing to throw him and his allies in prison if that’s what it takes.
And a top Democrat just announced a horrifying scheme to jail top Trump officials.
With Mueller’s investigation ending, and Trump being fully vindicated, Democrats are furious.
They refuse to let the Russia Collusion Hoax die, and are desperately trying to bring it back to life by any means necessary.
So they’re issuing meritless subpoenas on officials in Trump’s administration.
Those subpoenas are hitting his top officials, including his Senior Advisor Stephen Miller.
But Trump isn’t having any of it, and is simply telling his officials to ignore the subpoenas.
And to get back at him, Democrat Rep. David Cicilline told MSNBC that he is pushing for jail time for those who refuse to comply.
Breitbart News reports:
“Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, suggested imprisonment for officials in the Trump administration that did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
Cicilline argued there was a precedent for such action.
“First of all, Chris — Congress cannot allow the president to prevent us from oversight,” he said. “We have three things Congress can do if witnesses refuse to comply with a lawfully issued subpoena. One is, refer to the Department of Justice for prosecution because that’s a crime. We don’t have a lot of confidence Mr. Barr will do that. The second is to start a civil proceeding and get a citation from the court to bring that person into contempt and do it that way. But there’s a third method we can do right away. Since 1821, the Supreme Court has recognized the inherent right of Congress to hold individuals in contempt and to imprison them. That was reaffirmed in a case in 1935.””
This is a terrifying proposal, and shows that Democrats are willing to do anything in their power to get their way.
Mueller proved Trump did nothing wrong.
But that doesn’t fit Democrats’ narrative, so they are digging for anything they can use to harm Trump.
