Joy Behar Suggests the Entire Republican Party 'Should Be Thrown in Jail' Over Trump

Seems like a good idea to me. The entire GOP has become lawless. They are trying to destroy the U.S. Constitution.

“Lock ’em up!” That’s what The View‘s Joy Behar suggested was the due course of action regarding all Republicans — with perhaps an exception for Rep. Justin Amash — over the Mueller report and the failure to impeach and the administration’s refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas.

After some back-and-forth with Meghan McCain, Behar characterized the comment as hyperbole, though from context it was clear that it was only hyperbolic in the sense of action that can be taken, but that the sentiment behind it was genuine, especially with her reference to Nixon.

Host Whoopi Goldberg posed the question of whether the refusal of Don McGahn to comply with a subpoena constitutes its own instance of obstruction of justice. Co-host Sonny Hostin answered first, saying that she thinks he is at least “in contempt of the subpoena” and that there should or will be “repercussions.” “I think he can be fined and hauled into jail for it,” she said.

Behar then added her list of lack of cooperation, which included Steve Mnuchin, Sen. Lindsey Graham, and McGahn.
