Despite voting to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt of Congress, there’s little House Republicans can do in the short term to compel him to turn over documents — unless it wanted to revisit a long-dormant power and arrest him. [more]
Yeah, I know, Congress doesn’t have the cojones.
Still, it would do my heart good.
(What? *snick* Yeah, a new tax of $10M for anyone not complying with a Congressional subpoena.)
Oh, yeah, almost forgot:
“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day … I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.” — Pelosi
Oh, no, you cou’ent.
Pelosi never had the power to arrest because the contempt vote was contained to the committee level [i.e. the contempt vote never reached the House floor]. “She’s absolutely dead wrong,” — Rove
Still, it’s nice to know that the Dems admit that the option to lock ‘im up in the pages’ restroom actually exists.
(What? You don’t believe her BS about it not bein’ appropriate, do ya? She would’a if she’d'a could’a.)
