WHY CONTEMPT-OF-CONGRESS IS TOOTHLESS


 


R. A. Schultz


 


 


Currently, contempt of Congress referrals are made to the DOJ where a DOJ lawyer decides whether or not to prosecute.  This is precisely why the contempt-of-Congress citation of Eric (The Red) Holder simply died on the vine.


 


Why not have Congress authorize, via appropriate legislation, the Sergeant-at-Arms of the House (or Senate) to arrest and imprison the offender until such time as the offender relieves him/herself of the contempt?


 


Further, the appropriate Sergeant-at-Arms would be authorized to insist upon the aid of the nearest U. S. Marshal’s Office to effect the arrest.


 


As a retired LEO, I’d hope a$$holes like Peter Strzok would resist.

So much of the congressional hearings is just a side show anymore. Has anyone yet been punished in any way other than chastisement for appearing nor not appearing??
