House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) reportedly suggested this month fining Trump administration officials who do not comply with congressional subpoenas.
Bloomberg News reported Wednesday that Nadler floated the idea earlier this month at a House leadership meeting. The outlet cited a person who attended the closed-door meeting for its report.
The article goes on to state the following:
According to Bloomberg, the person, who spoke to the outlet on the condition of anonymity, said that the proposal would put more power behind the congressional subpoena, which many Trump officials are delaying or ignoring.
Nadler also mentioned the possibility of jailing officials who defy subpoenas, but believed that was not realistic, the source told Bloomberg.
At a meeting of House leaders this month, Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler suggested fining officials personally if they deny or ignore subpoenas, Bloomberg reports. Nadler even mentioned jailing admin officials as a consequence for contempt of Congress.https://t.co/uVgj3BHp16
