The partisan rhetoric is really starting to get out of control in D.C., and the words coming out of Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) mouth these days are absolute proof of that.
Rep. Tlaib has been busted for admitting that the Democrat caucus is actually considering arresting and detaining White House officials who refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas.

If you believe what Democrats are saying, government officials ignoring congressional subpoenas is something we have never seen before.
Well, anyone who paid attention during the Obama administration knows that is far from the truth. Since 1975, there have been close to two dozen officials who were considered in contempt of congressional subpoenas.
Two of the most recent examples of this were Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, and Hillary Clinton’s IT Director, Bryan Pagliano. Eric Holder would be the most notable, as he was found in contempt by the House with a vote of 255-67.
For some reason, though, the media continues to seek him out to provide criticism of Attorney General William Barr and other Trump officials who already have signaled an intention to resist congressional subpoenas.
Of all the contempt options, the most severe is inherent contempt, which seems to be the route Tlaib is hoping the House will take. While she is 100% wrong that the D.C. police would have a role, it is possible that the House of Representatives Sergeant-at-Arms could theoretically get involved.
The party found guilty of contempt could be arrested by the Sergeant-at-Arms and brought in front of Congress for his or her punishment, which could include imprisonment.
This is something the American people really need to watch closely because if Dems decide to go this route, it is surely a sign of things to come. This entire process has been corrupt from the beginning with unfounded accusations lobbed at this administration with little attention paid to the potential corruption exhibited by former VP Joe Biden.
Has anyone noticed how quiet Biden has been throughout this process?
Could it be that he knows if this case is really investigated, people are going to find that he used his power to enrich his son in both Ukraine and China while he was the vice president?
The tactics being used by Democrats today are the polar opposite of what our Founding Fathers had in mind when they established our independence. Take heed, patriots, this is a quick peek into our future if Dems are able to regain power in the Senate and win the White House.
