1. The first two options to deal with Trump’s obstructionist conduct of declaring that administration members will refuse to comply with all Congressional subpoenas are ineffectual. Criminal contempt relies on AG Barr to do the right thing by having a US Attorney . . . .
2. pursue criminal contempt in court. Ain’t gonna happen. The second approach, civil enforcement, will involve a protracted court battle that could drag on for months. Here’s a third option: Congress could initiate impeachment hearings & subpoena every single witness with . . .
3. relevant evidence, every single witness the American people have a right to hear from regarding the crimes/misdeeds of this president & his administration. Then, we start calling witness to testify. If the witnesses comply with the subpoena then they testify . . .
4. However, if a witness fails to appear because Trump has muzzled them or threatened them or prohibited them from testifying by asserting bogus claims of privilege, here’s what we do: let’s assume Don McGahn refuses to testify. We then take McGahn’s statements to Mueller . . .
5. we introduce them as his testimony we move on to the next witness and the next and the next. We plow through without delay. No protracted court battles trying to enforce subpoenas. That is fighting the battle on Trump’s terms - endless delays via frivolous litigation . . .
6. AND, for every witness Trump blocks from testifying, Congress drafts another article of impeachment for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. We plow through, undeterred, unabated, unapologetic. We expose to public view the MANY crimes by Trump & we impeach him . . .
7. This is how to defend the American people, this is how to support our Constitution, this is how to honor the rule of law. Congress, if you’re listening, #LetsRoll
