'Without a vote': GOP lawmaker airs bizarre 'civil prosecution' plan for Merrick Garland ( www.rawstory.com )


Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) also suggested a novel way to deal with contempt of Congress. She told Fox News that she was prepared to force a vote on Garland's arrest.

If her legislation is enacted, it would require the House sergeant at arms to arrest Garland

We’re not going to stop doing the bad things. We’re going to turn the people stopping us from doing bad things into political prisoners.

But republicans don’t want the courts to be used to attack political opponents.

It's heartening that someone so profoundly mentally ill can still find a job.

So. if Biden doesn't get executive priviledge... as a sitting president... does that mean Trump doesn't get it... as a former president?

who am I kidding, they don't care about the hypocrisy.

To the fascist, hypocrisy is a feature. It's a tool that removes restrictions for themselves while it restricts others. It's a flex; their strength is so great it can't be bound by internal consistency or mental consonance.

To the fascist, if hypocrisy grants them more power then it's a good thing

We'll wait for Jim Jordan to respond to his congressional supoeona first.
