Dem Rep. Advocates Jailing Witnesses in Impeachment Inquiry

Harlow: ‘So you’d put Ambassador Sundland, Bill Barr, Don McGahn in jail?’

EXCERPT:

GARAMENDI: "They want to fight? Okay. Let us arm ourselves completely and totally with the full power of Congress. The votes I am sure are there for an impeachment inquiry structured in such a way that we have the full opportunity to get all the information, call in the witnesses, get the details, get the e-mails and all the rest. With regard to inherent contempt, I have been for that all along. I think that when the witnesses come and they simply refuse to answer questions, I think it’s time to call in the sergeant at arms, march them off to a little jail, which we do happen to have in one of the rooms of the Capitol, and let them sit there and cool off for a while."
