Congress can arrest and jail Lois Lerner until she testifies (do it to Ohr if he takes 5th)

On its own, Congress has clear authority to arrest and jail Lois Lerner until she testifies. That is the best way to end the stonewalling about the IRS‘ targeting of the Tea Party and other conservatives. There is no better option. Instead, the House of Representatives should use its inherent and historical power to arrest and confine persons it finds to be in contempt. The Supreme Court has upheld this power; this would not be the first time Congress confined someone to compel them to testify.

I keep hoping against hope that the House will do something here… long can Paul Ryan stand in the way while our Constitution burns?

Eddie Munster uses our Constitution like a toy train….strictly for HIS entertainment.

He’s a UniParty hack that’s out to protect the UniParty at all costs…if that tells ya anything.

The truth is that the swamp Republicans love the fact that she tormented the Tea Party. The only time the GOP fights back is when it is challenged from the right.

This Lerner thing really sticks in my craw. She got immunity so she could be forced testify years ago, and still hasn’t testified. She still gets paid very well. None of this makes any sense, it’s time to make all of them start singing. John Boehner at his best.

That would require balls, and the GOPe has none.

You are correct…..McConnell has never displayed so much viciousness against the left as he has against Moore

Mine, too. It’s so wrong in so many ways and is totally unacceptable.

The slave has become the master and the slaves are gutless bastards, eunuchs, devoid of energy, morality and desire to do everything except what is right. FU Ryan, McConnell, and the entire congress. FU to the nth degree— blood is on your collective heads.
