Democrats Consider JAILING Yet Another Trump Official After IRS Memo Surfaces

The democratic hysteria has reached bold new heights this week.

With the White House and Congress currently locking horns over all manner of issues, some on the left are pushing for stern action against members of our own government.

This brand of dire dialogue began weeks ago after Attorney General Bill Barr refused to hand over an un-redacted version of the Mueller report to Congress.  The move triggered charges of contempt for the nation’s top cop, and democrats have been pondering the possibilities for enforcement against what they perceive as his insubordinate behavior.  The mosts popular options among democrats seem to be either arresting the Attorney General, or levying massive, crushing fines against him.

Given the reticence of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to punish the President for fear of political retribution in 2020, it is no surprise that Barr remains both free and financially unburdened.

It is this hesitation that has Pelosi’s flock ready to revolt, and their latest calls for legal action against the administration are now targeting Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and his bosses.

Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett said Tuesday that IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin should be jailed or fined for stonewalling congressional subpoenas for President Trump’s tax returns.

Doggett, D-Texas, a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, said Tuesday that congressional Democrats need to employ what’s known as “inherent contempt” for Trump officials defying committee requests and subpoenas for Trump’s financial information.

Speaking to Rachel Maddow, Doggett laid out his hopes.

“To take action, I believe it’s going to require fines or confinement under our power of inherent contempt to get the information we need and to get all these other people that, under what seems to be gang rule, are told don’t say anything and don’t provide anything,” he continued. “Total silence, total obstruction.”

The release of President Trump’s financial information has been a long and protracted battle thus far, with several documents currently tied up in the legal system pending appeal by the White House.

This latest legal conjecture comes on the heels of the disclosure of an internal memo from the IRS itself in which the agency states that the release of Trump’s tax returns is mandatory under the current law.

Trump Lashes Out At Democrats, Claims ‘Zero’ Fairness In House Impeachment Inquiry

Published

President Trump, well known for being a counterpuncher, has had enough of the Democratic Party taking shots at him, raking him over the coals, and being in the way of him accomplishing the agenda he set out to accomplish when campaigning for president back in 2015-2016. The latest scheme of the Democrats is, of course, the impeachment proceedings, with the Senate trial set to begin this week. Trump has claimed there has been “zero fairness” for him by the radical left in this country who have been on a witch hunt to see him removed from office for a long, long time. Here’s more from Fox News: “They didn’t want John Bolton and others in the House. They were in too much of a rush. Now they want them all in the Senate. Not supposed to be that way!” Trump tweeted Monday, referring to Democrat-sought witnesses like Bolton, his ex-national security adviser. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1219285375736328192 “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer is now asking for ‘fairness,’ when he and the Democrat House members worked together to make sure I got ZERO fairness in the House,” he continued. “So, what else is new?” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1219286662221651970 The president’s tweet comes just hours after Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., vowed to “force votes on witnesses and documents” in the impeachment trial, which is slated to begin Tuesday. “We Democrats aim to get the truth,” Schumer said. “Make no mistake about it, we will force votes on witnesses and documents, and it will be up to four Republicans to side with the Constitution, to side with our democracy, to side with the rule of law, and not side, in blind obeisance, to President Trump and his desire to suppress the truth. Because, in my judgment, he probably thinks he’s guilty.” One thing liberals have never been able to stand…

Gun Rights Activists In Virginia Want Northam To Step Down: ‘Racist Ralph Has Got To Go’

Published

on

Things are heating up in Virginia as pro-Second Amendment citizens of the state show up at a massive pro-gun protest rally to let the state government, particularly Gov. Ralph Northam — the blackface guy — know exactly what they think of the gun ban being pushed by Democrats in the government. Protesters made it clear in no uncertain terms they’ve had enough of Northam, as they demanded that he step down from his position immediately. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Hey-hey, ho-ho, racist Ralph has got to go,” the protesters chanted about Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat. https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1219252570612555776 Thousands of Second Amendment activists took to the streets for a rally on Monday in response to sweeping gun legislation proposed by Northam and the commonwealth’s Democratic-controlled General Assembly. https://twitter.com/MichaelCoudrey/status/1219270532668915713 The legislation would limit purchases of handguns to once a month, virtually ban military-style weapons, and give local governments the authority to seize guns from people law enforcement deems a threat to the public. The proposed measure has sparked outrage among gun enthusiasts in the state, where nearly 100 towns, cities, and counties have declared themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries.” https://twitter.com/gmoomaw/status/1219275065000415233 Our Founding Fathers would truly be proud of the people of Virginia for opposing tyranny and standing up boldly for their God-given right to defend themselves from oppressive government by upholding the Second Amendment, featured prominently in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution. This is precisely why they also enshrined freedom of speech in the Constitution, to enable every day citizens to air their grievances with the government and allow like-minded individuals to form movements that would put pressure on elected officials to uphold the law of the land. Kudos, Virginia.
