Tlaib: Dems Have Discussed Arresting White House Officials Who Refuse to Comply With Subpoenas

Freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) told the Deadline Detroit that House Democrats have talked about arresting and detaining members of President Donald Trump's administration who fail to comply with congressional subpoenas. While this is something Democrats are contemplating, Tlaib said this is "uncharted territory."

“If they were to detain someone, where would they go and have them detained so that they can comply with the subpoenas?” Tlaib said.

“There have been actual serious conversations about what the logistics would look like . . . if we did have to force someone through a court order to come before the Congressional committee," she explained. "This is pretty uncharted territory for many of us and even for Congress.”

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his thoughts on Tlaib's comments:

Earlier this month, at a town hall meeting, about the "unprecedented" stop Democrats are making. 

Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we've ever had a situation like this.

So they're trying to figure out — no joke — they're trying to figure out, "Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?" No, no. What are we hoping? I mean, I'm not in those kinds of conversations, but I'm asking, like, you know, what happens? And they're like, "Well, Rashida, we're trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory." No, I'm telling you that they're trying to be like, "Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?" No, I mean those are the kinds of things they're trying to tread carefully.

Democrats have moved forward with a formal impeachment inquiry, which started when a whistleblower filed a complaint over a call President Donald Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. During the call, Trump suggested Zelensky investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, for corruption. While Biden was overseeing affairs with Ukraine, Hunter was being paid $50,000 a month by a Ukrainian gas company despite having no natural energy experience.
