An idea on how to get rethugs to comply with subpoenas

1. Request that the witness / person appear in front of the committee.

2. If that person refuses or does not respond, send out the subpoena. Notify the potential witness that if he or she does not show up, the committee will show and enter into the Congressional record a video of everything that the person has said on camera in chronological order, complete with date and time stamp of the utterance.

For example, if Kevin McCarthy refuses to answer questions, there are hours worth of his responses to media questions starting on January 6 to the present day. Highlight all those instances where his story has changed and note when he went to Florida to visit That Fucking Goon. If lil Kevvie wants to explain his side of whatever his story of the day is, he will just have to show up and answer questions.

3. Stick to that plan.

2. Dart them with tranquilizers like you would a charging rhino,

and drag them into the hearing room in a net.

4. The committee is rightfully skipping #1 and going directly to issuing subpoenas

at least that one thing was learned from impeachment. sigh...

7. I thought they were bypassing requests and

Going straight to subpoenas.

They learned TFGís m. o. Of ignoring them.

So then the committee can site for contempt
Ask a federal prosecutor to bring criminal charges

I donít think they are going to mess around but still it will be a process.

Go get em!!!

8. Skip the request step. Just send subpoenas. If they don't show, vote out the criminal contempt

resolution immediately. The subpoena-defier made their choice, they chose a federal criminal charge, trial, and conviction. Make it happen for them.

10. OR (just spitballing), if McCarthy refuses to show up, have the House Sergeant at Arms arrest him.

The only way to avoid arrest and compulsion to appear is to leave the Capitol and the District, in which case he won't do a good job as Minority Leader.
