That is the question the House of Reps is asking.
The question was part of a report I saw over the weekend….whether the Hose will consider legal action against those the defy a subpoena issued….considering?
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot will “swiftly consider” holding one-time Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon, and potentially others, in contempt of Congress for ignoring committee subpoenas, committee chairman Bennie Thompson vice-chair Liz Cheney said Friday.
The move came after Bannon formally advised the committee that he would be unable to comply with their requests, citing former President Donald Trump’s intention to invoke executive privilege. In a letter obtained by ABC News, Bannon’s lawyers said that until the matter is settled in court, they will not comply with the committee’s subpoena.
The committee last month issued subpoenas to Bannon and other top Trump aides Mark Meadows, Kash Patel and Dan Scavino, as part of its probe into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. An additional 11 subpoenas were issued last week to organizers of the pro-Trump rally that preceded the attack.
Meadows, a former White House chief of staff, and Patel, an ex-Pentagon official, are “engaging” with the committee, officials said. The committee had no update on the status of Scavino.
This proves my point about just how feckless the Congress has become.
Marshals should have been on stand-by for there was a great possibility that their legal requests would have been ignored.
And yet they have to ‘consider’ whether to use legal force to compel those people to comply.
I standby my statement that these ‘elected’ officials are as worthless as tits on a flashlight.
